Yes, we went to Hale'iwa to get something to eat.
We also needed to have our first Shave Ice of the trip.
We didn't go to Matsumoto's.
We went another day
Just so Daniel could say he went.
Instead we went to MY favorite shave ice place...
Can't say why I like it (other than the shorter line)
But it was pretty awesome.
If you've never had Hawaiian Shave Ice, you might be thinking,
"Hey! What's the big deal? It's just a Snow Cone!"
And that's where you'd be wrong my friend.
If you really want to know the specifics...
Shave Ice is made with a different Machine than Snow Cones.
The Machine SHAVES the ice instead of just turning it into little pellets.
With that in mind, you have to shape the Shave Ice more than a snow cone.
Also, when you add syrup to Shave Ice, it SHOULD stay up in the ice instead of going straight to the bottom of the cup.
For even more goodness you can get ice cream at the bottom, cream on top or sweet beans!
Any choice is amazing!!
Moral of the story:
Don't be dissin' my Shave Ice.
It's WAY better than any Snow Cone!
