Exploring the North Shore

Blog Post Image

If you’re visiting or planning to visit Oahu the famous North Shore is SURE

to be on the top of your list. Aside from the beautiful angel wing painting

that’s a must for the ‘gram there are tons of amazing, fruit stands, coffee

shops, food trucks, and boutiques. To make it a bit easier, here are some

of the best places to go that we recently took our in-laws when visiting. 


Big Wave Shrimp Truck

In a cute little lot right in North Shore, there are a bunch of food trucks

featuring Korean, Thai, and even more food from around the world, BUT

this specific shrimp truck was actually featured on Guy Fieri's show "Diners,

Drive-In's, and Dives". You can find photos of Guy in the kitchen trying garlic

and spicy shrimp as well as the hockey wings. When we went we tried all

of the above and I MUST say the hour drive from where we live on island

was so worth it. I wanted to go back the very next day! Be sure to grab a lei

and take a photo in their hula cutout next to the truck before you go.


Bubble Shack Hawaii

I have truly never seen more beautiful pieces of art than these handcrafted

soaps. Bubble Shack was started back in 2005 and today the creators are

an eclectic mix of musicians, surfers, animal rescuers, and even more-

each creation is so unique and vibrant! Over time Bubble Shack's mantra

has become more about creating ocean and environment-friendly bath,

beauty, and home products, specifically for the surf and ocean minded!


PS It’s right across the street from Big Wave Shrimp


Coffee Gallery

Okay, coffee lovers! We drove aimlessly and stumbled across this

adorable coffee shop by chance and OH MY GOODNESS! Aside from

being highly aesthetically pleasing with burlap sacks from previous coffee

hauls covering the whole ceiling, the selection of coffee and tea they have

is out of this world. Get everything from fresh juices, smoothies, blended

coffees. even poured over ice cream not to mention all of the milk substitutes;

they recently added macadamia nut milk! 

I highly suggest the "coconater" - mocha coconut coffee
