Shaved Ice @ Matsumotos

The last stop on my way out from The North Shore was Matsamotos 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:

Instead of Menudo: The hangover cure. La Cruda.

Okay it’s a bit dramatic to call this the hangover cure, everyone knows what cures a hangover. However I am so excited to share this recipe with everybody. I won’t bore you with the details but this  soup is said to support adrenal health, and helps your liver process alcohol and excess sugar and encourages the…
