Shave ice is a Hawaiian institution and perhaps the best practitioner on Maui is the shave ice guy in Paia. Just ask him. His only competition on the island are Tobi's in Kihei and Lorraine's in Kahakuloa - but Tobi has drifted away from the purity of the ice and Lorraine is only open June through August. Shave ice is something like slush or a snow cone but has its own texture and tastes. I still want to do an entry on shave ice in general but don't miss this place. Coming back from Hana go through the one stop light in Paia and look on the left.
