Shimazu Shave Ice is located within Hawaii’s Favorite Kitchen, right around the corner from another local favorite eatery, Rainbow Drive-In (view review).
Shimazu gained fame at their flagship shop on N. School Street closer to downtown Honolulu, for serving The Larry, quite possibly the largest serving of shave ice in the world. Shimazu may be well known for their serving size, but it’s is no gimmick, as they are also have the best shave ice on the island. The ice is soft, fine, and perfectly packed, while the variety of flavors is second to none on the island. Our favorite combo? Coconut cream with red velvet creme, topped with haupia snowcap (pictured).
