I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Hawaii for the first time. My experience with the people, the island and especially the food have made me want to return to theisland in the near future. We stopped at a small shrimp farm/restaurant called Fumi's on the side off the road in the middle of Oahu North Shore to try some local cuisine.It was obviously a good choice as it was very busy with many locals even at 2 pm.

I selected the coconut shrimp dish which consisted of six freshly made coconut shrimp, two mounds of jasmine rice, a small side salad, and a slice of freshly cut Hawaiian pineapple. All together the dish was the perfect representation of the local foods and culture and was served right at the location of the shrimp farm. We finished off the lunch with a Dole pineapple soft ice cream which was both sweet and tart. A perfect finale!
