Matsumoto Shave Ice - North Shore , Hawaii famous Shave Ice form Matsumoto Store
Best shave ice in the world!
My raspberry, lemonade, and green tea with ice cream and condensed milk was more delicious than I was prepared for.
Vast collection of artsy t-shirts.
Don't skip the giant soft mochi!
Eat fast as you can.
Good service , hawaiian experience
Long damn line but really good when you finally get to it. The large is really large. Make sure you get the shaved ice w ice cream. Great when you finally get down to it.
Too expensive shit
Make sure you get condensed milk
Green tea flavor + condensed milk is delicious.
Deliciously colorful sugary ice concoction.
The shave ice is smooth
Try everything once. How often are you here?
The green tea, lilikoi, and guava flavors were all good. Add condensed milk and red beans! The line was super long but it moves by quick.
Good shaved ice
No kooks brah
Green tea special is awesome!
Worth the line as they are masters of the shave ice treat.
The most famous shaved ice spot on the north shore. Line moves fairly quickly, tons of flavors to choose from. Loved the tropical combo with guava, papaya and lilikoi.
Since Aoki is closed, I got large Hawaiian w/condensed milk and ice cream. Like a previous tip, save .30 and get it in a bowl and prepare to poop a rainbow of artificial coloring.
Came to the North Shore last year and didn't have shave ice, so I was determined this year. What a waste of calories! I feel like this should be called Diabetes Ice. Give me regular ice cream any day.
Tropical shaved ice
For those who don't know, shave ice is a much finer shave than the traditional sno-cone you get in the mainland. Recommend it served over ice cream. Vanilla mixes well with a lot of flavors!
This is a must if you're visiting the North shore. Be sure to get your shave ice with vanilla ice cream in the middle. Large selection of cool souvenir t-shirts.
The shaved ice with cream is great
Get the rainbow shave ice. Ask for a bowl instead of paying for the useless plastic cup holder.
Just make sure you add the condensed milk. You wont regret it!!!
try the shaved ice
Definitely get the ice cream and beans. ABSOLUTELY get condensed milk on the top! I cannot stress this enough.
Definitely invest in the plastic holder. It's 0.30 cents, but it's worth it. It does get messy and if you get a combination, you can even use the holder to mix it around :)
Best shaved ice in Oahu..
The t shirts are sweet, but None of my shave ice was. I mostly tasted food coloring
A little overrated, we had better at shaved ice trucks nearby.
Tropical!!!! With ice cream
The holder is a must! No way to eat it without the holder (unless you want half to hit the ground and your hands to be sticky!). Also, prices are really reasonable :-)
If you have no idea how a shave ice would taste like, you'd think this place is fantastic. I had a better one in Lihaina, Maui. Matsumoto is all just sugar and ice. Can't taste the flavor! Overrated.
Get the cup holder when ordering... Worth the 30 cents. Anything that leaks over the edge gets caught in the cup holder. And you get to eat at the end lol
If it's your first time, go all out and get the ice cream and condensed milk! Yuuuum!
The Shave Ice is Awesome! A must stop in the North Shore !
Shave Ice not as fine as I'm used too..employees very unfriendly..lines to long..the shave ice was good but I've had better..this place is very overrated!
No tiger's blood flavor?! Shame...
The line isn't ALWAYS long and it moves fast!
Syrup poured over shaved ice is the house specialty. Try the Hawaiian — a tropical mix of pineapple, coconut and banana. Just like a Snow Cone, but better.
Skip the long lines and go to Uncle Clay's House of Pure Aloha! HOPA = genuine hospitality, powdery ice, and fresh fruit flavors vs. Matsumoto's long lines, chunky ice, and syrupy sweet flavors.
Get the green tea special.
Come early and you won't have to stand in line for half an hour ;-)
