Shave ice on the Malibu Pier

CarbonBeach | May 28, 201212:06 AM

Not willing to fight the horrific traffic or be housebound on such a beautiful day, we walked over to the Malibu Pier this afternoon fully resigned to the fact that we were going to overpay for mediocre food with a great view. What we found instead was the best shave ice we have encountered in many years. There was a stand right on the pier that bested most I've had on the islands. In California I always get either good ice or good syrups but this was perfect ice and great syrups; they even had the li hing powder!!! My daughter made the very predictable (for a seven year old) choice of blue raspberry, I chose the house-made rose water, lychee and lime ( it was sublime ). They offered the standard choices plus 3 or 4 small batch, organic syrups and offered samples of the unexpected favors. Added bonus was as we were ordering, Adam Sandler and his family were in line behind us. What a doll he was as he spent ten mins. discussing ice texture and flavor choices with my girls. I am always on the quest for great shave ice and this one was defiantly in the top 3. Not sure if the stand had a name but it was the only one on the pier.
