In Honolulu, a local favorite for Hawaiian Shave Ice is Waiola Shave Ice. Just outside of the Waikiki area, Waiola Shave Ice was founded on Waiola Street back in the mid 1940's. So, after serving up this cold, refreshing delicacy for over 70 years, Waiola had made quite a name for themselves.
Hawaiian Shave Ice (finely shaved ice topped with sweet syrup) is their most popular item. To make things even more sweet, Waiola offers a wide variety of "goodies" that can be added to the shave ice, as well. Sweet additions like:
- Ice Cream
- Azuki Beans
- Li Hing Mui Powder
- Lilikoi Cream
- Mochi Balls
The PTH Team always recommends a scoop of vanilla ice cream at the bottom of your shave ice. However, we also advise you to explore the many other delicious options that Waiola Shave Ice has perfected.
