Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice

Be warned, you will never be able to enjoy shaved ice the same way again after you leave Hawaii. Their ice is so fine, that it literally melts in your mouth. No chunks of ice that need crunching. Each snowflake perfectly and evenly captures the juice. A treat that both the young and young at heart will be sure to go back for again and again.
