Kauai Valley, Hawaii
Monsarrat Ave Shave Ice is my new favorite shave ice stand. Hidden between two restaurants, it’s located in a little cute alley way on Monsarrat Avenue. For those who aren’t from Hawaii and familiar with shave ice, here’s a quick description.
Based on Japanese kakigori, their ice machine plows out some of the fluffiest shave ice I’ve ever had, and they offer flavors such as yuzu and green tea. I love that their syrup is homemade and uses real fruit juice. I was also surrounded by cute little cacti and trinkets, as I enjoyed my shave ice.
My friends and I got ourselves acai and green tea topped with ice cream, condensed milk, and mochi balls. It was so yummy. I’ll definitely be back for seconds~
