With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
Ah, Shave Ice: the quintessential Hawaiian treat. Not only is shave ice the perfect snack for a quick sugar rush after a day spent at the beach, but it’s one treat that’s pretty much exclusive to the Aloha State. You see, shave ice and snow cones are not the same thing — the consistency of true shave ice is that of newly fallen snow, not the granular and crunchy ice so many are used to. While you’ll find shave ice shops across the islands, there’s no better place to indulge than Matsumoto’s, which not only serves up the most extravagant shave ice we’ve ever seen but is perhaps the most famous shave ice spot in the state.
Matsumoto Shave Ice is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit their website or follow them on Facebook. So, tell us, what’s your favorite shave ice flavor combination from Matsumoto’s?
