The Sweet Stuff: Ailana Shave Ice

Known in Japan as kakigori, shave ice was originally introduced to Hawaii by pineapple-plantation workers. Shimabukuro loves the house-made syrups and toppings at Ailana Shave Ice. “My favorite is the uji kintoki, or green tea with adzuki beans.” 1430 Kona St., suite 102; 808/955-8881; shave ice for two $5.
