En­ter the Shave Ice De­bate

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - DINING & ENTERTAINMENT -

Shave ice—it’s not your av­er­age snow cone. De­bates rage over which shack, shop or stand has the most finely shaven ice or per­fectly crafted syrup. From hau­pia (co­conut) to li hing mui (a salty, dried plum) to straw­berry, shave ice fla­vors can be se­lected to fit any­one’s taste buds, mak­ing this icy treat the per­fect end­ing to a sunny day at the beach.

On top of all of the de­li­cious fla­vors avail­able, lo­cal shave ice is of­ten ac­com­pa­nied by ice cream, con­densed milk or azuki beans. To try it lo­cal-style, add all three.

There are numer­ous op­tions through­out the is­land: In Kona, try Scan­di­na­vian Shave Ice on the cor­ner of Ali‘i Drive and Likana Lane; in Ka­muela, visit Anu­enue Shave Ice at the Kawai­hae Har­bor Shop­ping Cen­ter; or when in Hilo, check out Itsu’s Fish­ing Sup­plies, lo­cated at 810 Pi‘ilani St.
