So many options it was difficult to decide what kind to get. Fortunately even a 'small ' can include three flavors. Small is not small either! Yummy and delicious. Mango, lilikoi, guava, pineapple, to name a few.

OK...you just had that plate lunch or wish to supplement that Deli bento the you purchased in the Sack and Save Grocery in the Shopping Center (or from the KTA Grocery Store across the street). Around $4.50 for a medium shave ice with 2 flavors....More

Location is not great, but service was A+ and better than anything that I have had before! In a strip mall next to Holy Donuts.
