Ice cream isn't great on its own but the combos with them are delish - get something with goodies, like tapioca or condensed milk. Two can easily share a small.
The small Lava Flow shave ice is delicious. With strawberry and piña colada syrup, your choice of ice cream (vanilla or coconut is my fave) and add the "snow cap" sweetened condensed milk.
No matter what flavors you choose get the ice cream in the middle and top it off with a snow cap.
Tourist tip: the small is big enough to share but you may not want to! You can't go wrong w/the Hawaiian Sunset- so refreshing!
The shaved ice is the best I have ever had! Dole whip center, guava, pineapple and strawberry ice with coconut snow cap. The server was extremely friendly and even wrote aloha on my snowcone!!!!
Shaved ice is great! Servers are very friendly. We ordered a Lava Flow variation: piña colada, strawberry, coconut cream topping, no ice cream. So good and perfect for the warm Kona weather.
The shave ice is awesome, best we found! Huge sizes, decent prices and super friendly staff. Toasted coconut is amazing, as is Lava Lava flow. Get a snow-cap or coconut cream topping.
Get the Lava Flow (coconut & strawberry with ice cream and condensed milk.) the description sounds disgusting but it somehow works.
Whatever you do, don't get the chocolate flavor, it tastes like an umbrella handle. The fruit flavor are nice, though.
The service here is great, really friendly gentlemen. The shaved ice was SUPERB! I love it with ice cream in the center.
