From everything I've read, THIS is what shave ice is supposed to be.
We had stopped by another place on Oahu earlier in our trip and got shave ice from a food truck. Turned out to be just a snow cone. But Wilson's - not much to look at either inside or out - does ONLY shave ice and does it well on their antique of a machine.
It's like very soft snow, and of course sweet. We got a mix of coconut, pineapple, and banana syrups and the addition of 'cream' is an absolute must. The regular size for us was a perfect finish to our meal at Lucy's. And the $3.00 price tag is a steal.
Very nice conversation with the girl making them as well.
