Ice drizzled with rainbow-bright syrups. As far as frozen treats go, shave ice in the Islands is delightfully simple. Even former president Barack Obama and his family made sure to get shave ice each time they visited Oahu. Japanese immigrants, who came to the Islands to work in the sugar and pineapple fields in the mids, introduced the concept of kakigori.
Still the best shaved ice on the North... - Matsumoto Shave Ice
The Colorful History of Shave Ice | Hawaiian Airlines
Shave ice is really more than a "snow cone". Try the bean and ice cream below your choice of ice flavors-delicious. Long lines here but the team is very organized and got us through quickly. We tried shaved ice at several places on Oahu, but this was my favorite, and also the most affordable. They had so many fun and unique flavors But hands down my favorite was coconut cream.
I'm back home now from my U. Here's the first of my food-centric reports before the memories fade The shave no d!
This year we tried Aoki's based on a tip from my brother who surfs here every year and his wife who's family is from Oahu. We had shave ice from Aoki's and Matsumoto's on this trip and Aoki's was way better than Matsumoto's. See my rating on Matsumoto's Not only is the line much shorter, but the quality of the shaved ice was excellent! The ice was light and soft, not hard and coarse like Matsumoto's.
