Being from Hawaii, we have to talk about Shave Ice. Waiola has the finest shave ice in Hawaii (in my opinion). They also have the widest selection of flavors. Can you imagine - they have both coconut AND haupia flavors. If you like finely shaved ice, then Waiola is the place to go. You can add your choice of ice cream, mochi balls, azuki beans, and/or condensed milk. Lots of choices!
NOW, if you want a MEDIUM cut of shaved ice, I would recommend B&S on School street. They do not have a listed phone number so I cannot make a separate post. B&S is located between Nuuanu and Liliha streets, just after the Aala street bridge. They don't have as many flavors as Waiola, but they do have the option of adding ice cream and/or azuki beans to their shave ice. I personally prefer the medium cut.
If we're to make this a true Hawaii website, then I'd like to hear what others have to say about shave ice.
