Hawaii-style shave ice is served up as a fluffy, snow-like ice that absorbs syrup instead of allowing it to settle at the bottom of the cone. It’s famous for its fine texture as well as the multitude of syrup flavors and presentation variations vendors here are forever crafting. Among the longtime favorites: lilikoi, pineapple, green tea, coconut and strawberry syrups. Real-deal shave ice shops offer the option of burying a scoop of ice cream under the shave ice. Also on the real-deal menu: azuki beans. Mashed into a chunky paste, azuki beans are scooped into the center of the shave ice cone for an extra kick of sweetness midway through the treat. For details about other add-ons, such as a “snow cap” of sweetened condensed milk, mocha balls and li hing powder, click here.
