We are vacationing for the week in Kailua. We have loved the shave ice at Local Hawaii across the street from the bowling alley parking lot. The ice is not as fine as Waiola but the syrups are "all natural" and delicious. The flavors are fruity and local. We've loved the pineapple and the starfruit flavors. My husband is anxious to try the picked mango and the lemon peel flavors. We've already gone twice and will definitely go back.

Yesterday we tried the Shimazu Store. I know folks are raving about this place but I found the syrups lacked flavor and the ice was chunky. My boys ordered the green watermelon and loved it. I ordered the orange cream, strawberry cream, and pineapple but didn't like them. My boys tell me I ordered poorly.

We have a few days left before we leave. Hope to hit our standard, Waiola, as well as the General Store in Kailua. We read that Your Kitchen is wonderful as well. So much shave ice, too few days!

Shimazu Store
