Ice Ice Baby – Shave Ice, A Local Hawaiian Treat

January 9th, 2020

When you’re in town, be sure to beat the tropical heat with shave ice – a cool, fresh, hand-made treat and Hawaiian dessert! 

What are shave ice desserts? Not to be mistaken with a snow cone, shave ice is made by shaving a block of ice – giving it a fluffy, snow-like texture. 

The origin of the shave ice dates back to Japan’s Heian period, once isolated to only the wealthiest Japanese aristocrats, can be served with various elements added on the dessert such as mochi, fresh fruit, cream, sweet beans and taro/ube!

At Shoreline Hotel Waikiki – you can choose up to nine syrup available flavors and top it off with a drizzle of condensed milk. 

Complimentary for hotel guests – check our events schedule!
