Shaved Ice @ Matsumotos

Bottle Shaved ice
Kammaina pours syrup making a Matsumoto special.


The last stop on my way out from The North Shore was Matsumotos Shave Ice.   It seemed that almost everyone I met at the North Shore recommended I come here and when I found it on the Conde Nast Traveler I knew I had to try everything on the menu. The ice is fluffy and airy something between a cloud and cotton candy except not sticky.  There are what seems a hundred flavors to pick from here are the flavors:


Make your own combination by choosing up to three (3) flavors.
