Oahu Shave Ice and Ice Cream is serving authentic Hawaiian shave ice in Orange County, CA
During Ryan’s wife pregnancy, she had a really bad craving for shave ice. The closest shave ice place to Orange County is in Gardena. It’s almost an hour long drive to get there. This gave Ryan the idea of bringing shave ice closer for the OC with two locations in Fullerton (July 2011) and Yorba Linda (September 2011). The stores are not your typical shave ice place. In Hawaii, shave ice “shacks” are usually on the side of the road, and while some might have a few benches, usually there is nowhere to sit. The locals either stand around ‘talking story’ as they eat or sit in the car with the doors open or lean against the car so the shave ice doesn’t accidentally fall on the seat. In pidgin: “Eh, no worry. Da bruddah can find one way to eat any ting!” It’s all about the food in Hawaii. We always find a way to eat it. But, in California, it’s different. Oahu Shave Ice has tables and chairs inside and out. They have multiple shave ice machines so they can crank out tons of shave ice. They also mix their own flavors with lots of research to back it up.
