The Original Big Island Shave Ice truck used to be in the old Blue Dragon parking lot in Kawaihae. Hawaiian Homelands made them move, so now you can find them as follows: Mon. Tues, Fri & Sat on Church Road in Waimea 11:30-5:30, Wed at King's Shops in Waikoloa 10:00-5:00 and most Thurs in Hilo at the Kai Store 11:30-5:30. This shave ice is exceptional! They have fresh fruit flavors that they make themselves, pureeing local fruit. Their servings are so generous that one shave ice can easily be shared. One of my favorites is the green tea shave ice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream at the bottom. Be prepared to stand in line for this treat. It's the only shave ice I will get anymore. This is a Hawaiian family-run business, going on for the third generation. They've lasted because they're that good.
