YUMMMY for my Tummmy!!!!

For you Kettle Corn lovers out there, they
pop their own corn on site.

Take your visiting friends and relatives here.
They sell super cute T's

The Shaved Ice Men at Work
2 machines going at full speed...wow!

If there's a downside, it's the wait. Kinda long and pretty hot on a regular weekend day.
But Definitely worth the wait.
Hey, bring an umbrella to beat the heat!
Maybe they need to install misters...

The Price List...very Reasonable
Talk about getting More than your monies worth

Shimazu Store...located at 330 North School Street

Go to Shimazu's at 330 North School Street just past Nuuanu, heading towards Foodland on Liliha Street. This place has the BEST Shaved Ice on Oahu. Hands Down! Their portions are Humongous. Their flavors are Unique, Delicious, and on the Cutting Edge. The prices are Terrific. Talk about getting More than your Monies worth. Just remember to bring an umbrella and something to read or music to listen to while you wait.

Parking: You have to park down the street and street parking is slim pickings. We parked "near" Foodland. A sign in the shop said you can park behind the Antique store in marked stalls.

The Wait: well worth it but it can be kinda long and pretty hot. We waited for about 20 to 30 minutes before we got our shaved ice. Next time, we're bringing umbrellas and I'm bringing a book to read.

The Shaved Ice: Super super fine. Just like Matsumotos and Waiola.

The Size: A Large is Humongous. Next time, I'm just going to get the Small. But, if I'm super parched, I'll get the Large again. I wonder what the Extra Large looks like? Hmmm, maybe if we have 4 people, we can try it. I wonder if it comes in a big pot or something. Sorta like Farrell's birthday ice cream that they had scoooped into that big pot and ran around like crazy people around the shop before they put it on your table.

The Price: Very Reasonable. Worth the price. More for the Money.

The Flavors: Cutting Edge flavors. They have the old run of the mill favorites that Waiola and Matsumotos have. But, they have a list of their New flavors like Red Velvet Cream, a Peanut Butter and Chocolate, and some others. Their regular Flavor list has unique flavors on it also. And the flavors are Pure and Delicious. The Red Velvet actually tasted like a Red Velvet Cupcake with the frosting!

Now, I don't have to look any further for Excellent Shaved Ice. It's right in my neighborhood. Yayyy!
