Shaved Ice Hawaiian Style
A stop for shaved ice was a must when Cathy was in town visiting and I knew just the place to go. I have had shaved ice a few times since I have been here on island and just loved it but never have I been to Matsumoto's. So it was a perfect chance for us both to do something touristy. I have seen Matsumoto's on the TV show Dinners Drive Ins and Dives before as well as driven by it many times when driving through Haleiwa. So off we went, after fighting through the traffic on our drive down North Shore and some moron local that didn't know how to park we made our way to the line that wrapped around the side of the building.
I knew just what flavors I wanted Strawberry & Banana are my favorite. Cathy went for the Hawaiian Special: Pineapple, Coconut and Banana. It made for a great cool treat after all the shopping (more so window shopping) on black Friday we did.
We even got the super awesome holder to go with our shaved ice, thank goodness because I wouldn't of made it driving back to Schofield with out.
Now to take my love back for some, ummm he says it all taste the same but I have to say he is so so wrong. lol
