  Aoki's Shave Ice
by baileyniko

If you're craving a giant shave ice, and you see that the queue at Matsumoto's is out the door and down the street, just walk a few feet and you'll come to Aoki's Shave Ice.

The service was friendly, they have lots of flavors, and they're not a rip-off. I had a tropical blend of coconut, mango, and pineapple with my ice and it was great. Nifty little invention, that plastic "drip catcher" - keeps you from getting all sticky and attracting the bees that are all over the place.

Don't bother with shave ice back in Honolulu, the stuff at the North Shore is the real deal!
