Shrimp Scampi and Garlic Rice- Very garlicky and very tasty. I’m assuming the shrimp shells, like at Romy’s, were cut lengthwise to promote quick and easy removal of the shell. The fresh garlic flavored rice was a bonus!
And the spicy one – This was good also. It had a tangy taste plus some kick from the chili pepper seeds. As long as you took off all the pepper seeds before you ate it, the spicy level would be enjoyable. I put it at a 6 out of 10 level of spicyness (10 being that I would be crying, red face, and lips-mouth-face burning agony)

#1 Butter and Garlic Sauteed with Soyu Spicy Sauce – Do you see the sauteed garlic? Oh yea you do. ‘Nuff said =) p.s. we got the shrimp, but supposedly the prawns taste better.
#3 Fried Shrimp wrapped in an eggroll wrapper – Deep fried shrimp. Crunchy, shrimpy + some sweet and sour sauce = drooling as I type this!!!
Conclusion: Eat both on the same day like we did! Drive up to North Shore. Drop off someone to order at Giovanni’s. Drive down the road and drop off someone to order at Romy’s. Driver heads back to Giovanni’s to pick up that someone. Rendezvous at Romy’s because there is larger covered eating area with better breeze. Bring your own assortment of drinks to pair with your flavorul shrimp.
Perfect combo for Meesh’s tongue – Giovanni’s Shrimp scampi’s garlicky-ness + the spicy one tossed together, dipped in Romy’s spicy garlic butter + a bite of Giovanni’s garlic rice tossed with Romy’s sauteed garlic + a touch of Romy’s spicy garlic butter . brilliant.
