Don’t call it a sno-cone— Hawai‘i’s delightfully fluffy shave ice is a frozen treat like no other. At its core, the tasty creation may appear to be nothing more than finely shaved ice topped with flavored syrup, but the art of creating the perfect consistency of chunk-free, icy goodness is certainly mastered at Waiola Shave Ice. Arguably the best on the south shore, the melt-in-your-mouth summer fave (actually, all year long) is refreshing and ideal after a long day of sightseeing or a hearty meal. Choose from a long list of unique flavors like guava, lychee or lilikoi (passion fruit). And if you really want to try it local style, make sure to order yours with sweet azuki beans, ice cream and condensed milk.
