Price Scale

Wailua has a food truck on the island of Kauai, where mobs of tourists and locals line up for its freshly squeezed fruit syrups and lighter-than-air towers of ice. After an encouraging test-run at Lardo in 2016, it put down more permanent roots in Portland. The greatest things about this place? No corn syrup. Most shave ice spots on Hawaii will leave your tongue blue and heart racing. Fresh fruit keeps things light and flavors clean. That, and the quality of the shave ice, like a delicate, lightly packed snowball. Try the Lava Flow, with pineapple juice, coconut foam, strawberry puree, and a pineapple & strawberry fruit topping. (Optional ice cream base is a must).
