David Yamashiro is near religious about shave ice. He makes his own gourmet syrups and trains his staff at Ululani’s how to get the finest shave. Magic happens when a feather-light mound of ice is doused with liliko‘i (nearly pure passionfruit juice, with a dash of cane sugar), “snowcapped” with sweetened condensed milk, and sprinkled with chewy morsels of mochi. The resulting confection tastes like the fluffiest, most flavorful ice cream ever.
