Where does Giovanni’s shrimp truck get their shrimp? Romy’s and Fumi’s (they’re more food stands than actual trucks) are adjacent to their own shrimp farms, from which they harvest their shrimp. Giovanni’s, on the other hand, gets frozen shrimp from a wholesaler, who, according to the Giovanni’s manager, sources locally when possible, internationally when not.
Is Giovanni’s shrimp truck cash only? Perhaps the most important thing is that it’s cash only. It’s crowded, the lines are long, and there’s flies everywhere.
Which Giovanni shrimp truck is the original? It’s hard to go wrong with the North Shore shrimp trucks, but Giovanni’s is the original. There’s a number of different types of shrimp, so if you’re with a partner or a couple of people, get a few different types and share them about.
Is Giovanni’s shrimp truck worth it? If you like shrimp and garlic, and are ready for a rich greasy plate of shrimp, I think Giovanni’s is definitely hits the spot – it’s worth a stop in my books.
