Lulu’s Hawaiian Shave Ice (Steveston Farmers Market)

Nothing says summer more than shave ice.  If you’ve never been to Hawaii before, you’re probably wondering how this differs from a regular snow cone.  Unlike a snow cone which uses crushed ice, shave ice has much finer ice which absorbs the syrups better.

You can see in the machine that they use to shave the ice in the pictures below.  We were fortunate enough to try Matsumoto Shave Ice on our trip to Oahu this year.


We found Lulu’s at the Steveston Farmers Market in July.  They had over a dozen syrup varieites including: strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, wild grape, blood orange, passion fruit, cotton candy, key lime pie, kiwi, watermelon, pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and lychee.


For $4, you get up to 2 flavours ($0.50 for additional flavours) and sweetened condensed milk for an additional $0.50.


In Hawaii, you can also get these with ice cream and red beans on the bottom.  We ordered a Watermelon/Passion Fruit with condensed milk (pictured on the right) but they mistakenly made us a Watermelon/Strawberry (pictured on the left).  They quickly rectified the problem and gave us the Watermelon/Strawberry for free.


Check out their Facebook page to see where you can find them.
