COURTESY BOB SIGALL
Shave ice is a Hawaii favorite but on the Big Island it is known as “ice shave.” Three visitors partake at Matsumoto Shave Ice on the North Shore.
An ad for “ice shaves” ran in newspapers as early as 1897.
COURTESY MINI GARDEN RESTAURANT
Is it tomato beef or beef tomato? It might vary depending on which island you reside.
