Waiola Shave Ice

This "Shave ice" (snow cones to those from the mainland) institution could be considered the best example of this frozen treat in all of Oahu. At Waiola, there are more flavors than any other ice cream shop, as they grow exponentially with your own imagination. Some flavors range from plebeian banana to exotic li hing mui (pickled plum). There's a extra charge for additional ingredients that can be hidden inside; for example, ice cream or the Japanese favorite, red azuki beans.

2135 Waiola Street, Honolulu, HI, United States, 96826
Island Snow

The Island Snow in Kailua has become more famous for its "shave ice" (a tasty Hawaiian treat similar to a snow cone) than for its brand of apparel. You'll often see a line of people out the door, especially on the weekend. On the walls (and on the website) you'll find photos of President Barack Obama during his trips to Island Snow, one of his favorite spots while he's in town. In addition to the shave ice counter, the rest of the store sells apparel, mainly catering to surfers, skateboarders and snowboarders. It's a great place for souvenir t-shirts. Snowboards, watches, sunglasses and other apparel can also be found here.

Zippy's

Zippy's is an island institution that offers a fast food counter, a sit-down dining room, and a bakery that will keep you coming back time and again. This local standout is one of the things ex-islanders run to when returning to the island. The menu is a twist on standard family restaurant fare that includes complete dinners of Garlic Fried Rice and Shrimp, and Shoyu Braised Boneless Spare Ribs. But, it's the chili that hits a home run here. Whether vegetarian or beef, it is mildly seasoned and poured over fresh white rice. Don't even think of asking for cheese or crackers. - Lottie Tagupa
