MARINA DEL REY, CA - Killer Shrimp Restaurants, Marina del Rey’s favorite waterfront eatery, has announced its 3rd location set to open on August 8th at 19 Pier Ave. in Hermosa Beach, California. Killer Shrimp, known worldwide for its highly guarded Killer Shrimp secret family recipe, will replace the Cantina Real restaurant on the legendary Hermosa Beach Strand; setting a new growth milestone as the Killer Shrimp brand continues to build its market presence in Southern California.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring our Killer Shrimp family restaurant to the local Hermosa Beach community,” said Kevin Michaels, Owner of Killer Shrimp. “I have grown up spending so much of my life down here, surfing, dining, spending time and creating memories with friends and family. It’s an honor to open Killer Shrimp Hermosa Beach at such an amazing location, right at the end of Pier Ave with an unobstructed view of The Strand and the gorgeous Pacific Ocean. We feel Killer Shrimp is the ideal restaurant for locals and visitors to bring the whole family out to and experience our signature dishes, drinks, desserts, and atmosphere without the bill coming to a distasteful amount.”
Killer Shrimp brings a truly unique and exciting alternative to Hermosa Beach with an over 25-year history of success serving its signature recipe in the greater Los Angeles area. Killer Shrimp’s family values go way back, creator Lee Michaels (Kevin’s dad) first made the famous dish at home when the kids were young. In the years since, father and son have placed top priority on three things: preserving the quality of the original secret recipe, delivering over-the-top customer service and keeping prices affordable.
The signature Killer Shrimp recipe is a family guarded secret that has never left the Michael's hands, something truly unique which sets the brand apart from other culinary establishments in the industry. Killer Shrimp has a secret spice room that only one person who makes the spice packages and the owners have access to. Kevin and his father are the only people who know the secret recipe and they have worked very hard to keep it that way. All of the dry spices are packed for each individual order in the secret spice room and then combined with the finest natural ingredients to simmer for 10 hours, which creates our famous spicy sauce. Every single order of Killer Shrimp is made fresh, when your order is placed, the fresh shrimp are added to the sauce and cooked quickly. Your order is rushed to your table piping hot and served with a large bowl of sliced French bread for dipping. The menu inspires food addicts with traditional family comfort food recipes as well as focusing on local seafood and seasonal dishes from fresh oysters, mouth watering surf n turf, steak, salad, soup, and the desserts are nothing short of the ultimate guilty pleasure; with our sweet-tooth superstar being the Killer Shrimp Sweet Potato Pecan Pie served with decadent Chantilly Cream.
The Hermosa Beach location features the signature Killer Shrimp rock ’n’ roll inspired decor with sophisticated dark black wood floors, contemporary grey walls, drama influencing hanging lights above each table, black and white modern and retro photos adorning the interior walls, a social outdoor patio with a retractable awning located directly on Pier Plaza and the edge of The Strand providing unobstructed views of the pier and the ocean, and also features the only private parking lot on Pier Avenue and The Strand.
