For some reason, every single Hawaii travel book that I’ve read always makes some mention of Matsumoto’s and Aoki’s shave ice (both are located near North Shore) – but if you’re in the Waikiki/Honolulu area, Waiola’s is definitely the place to get shave ice in Oahu. The first time that bf and I went we had just finished a hike in the mountains so we went all out for the jumbo azuki bowl – green tea and milk shave ice topped with azuki beans, mochi, and condensed milk! The shave ice was powdery, luscious and light – SO ONO!
