I’ve heard a lot about this truck saying it’s the best shave ice next to the ones you will taste in Hawaii. Then again, I’ve heard that about Shave It and Shaka’s, which fall way short! There was no line, probably because it was freezing outside! The person who took my order, Rick, is the owner.
I told him how I heard that this is “The Best of the Best,” and that it’s like being back on the Island. He said, “Well, that’s what I’m hoping, but you’ll have to tell me yourself.” I ordered my usual, large shave ice with strawberry and blue vanilla syrup, with vanilla ice-cream at the bottom of the cup, and mochi and sweet cream (condensed milk) on top. As I scooped some for myself, I could already tell the ice was as soft as freshly fallen snow. I thought to myself, whatever, there’s nothing that can compare to Local Boys in Maui. I tasted it again, and it melted in your mouth. No biting of the ice required. Ok, it was from the top and just out of the ‘shaver’ so of course it’s going to be soft. I take another bite, and another, and another. It was so good. I was finally able to get some of the ice cream on the bottom.
YUM!. Not one bit of the ice cream or shave ice had icicles. Every bite was super creamy, super silky. It tasted exactly like Local Boy’s shave ice. I’d get this EVERY time!! Definitely a must try for those who love shave ice and for those who want to taste how real Hawaiian shave ice should taste like without having to spend an arm and a leg to go to Hawaii.
I have to agree with all those who called this “The Best of the Best” because it really is that good. In honor of Tropical Shave Ice, I took a picture with Rick giving him my stamp of approval.
