Mountain Magic Shave Ice, Waipahu, HI

Mountain Magic Shave Ice Restaurant Review

: Mountain Magic Shave Ice is a stand outside of Sports Authority and can be hard to find if you don't frequent Waikele, but you'll find it's worth the visit. They always seem to add new flavors to their list of 40, and the owner cooks her azuki beans and prepares the mochi ball toppings every morning---two essential items to have with Mountain Magic's shave ice. While our favorite flavors are honeydew melon, coconut and mango, we were intrigued with the tamarind, which isn't offered at most other shave ice places. It gets hot on the Ewa plain, so Mountain Magic will hit the spot after a day of shopping on this side of the island.
