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.

Multiple locations, (360) 609-5678, ululanisshaveice.com, $5.25.
