I ordered Signature Shave Ice — a heavenly concoction of specialty flavors including ice cream, fresh sweet cream topped with white mini-tapioca pearls served in a conical plastic cup. It comes with a small plastic spoon and a straw. Signature Shave Ice is a must-try — the deeper you dig with your spoon, the better the flavors get.
Also available: banana, coconut, bubblegum, guava, cotton candy, mango, orange, pineapple, passion fruit, piña colada, raspberry, strawberry, vanilla and watermelon. All for $4. Add 75 cents for each add-on for more flavors such as azuki red beans, coconut bites and flakes, Oreo crumbs, gummy straws, mini-tapioca pearls and vanilla ice cream.
Island Shave Ice is owned by Patty Mendiola and Andrew Ellinson. Patty’s sister Celeste Mendiola, a pastry chef at Oahu Country Club in Honolulu, flew in from Hawaii to help with the preparation of the menu and flavors.
Patty Mendiola said most of their ingredients are from Hawaii.
Soon, she said, Island Shave Ice will also have ice pops with a variety of flavors for the health-conscious.
