Snow Cones

Other than the Fair or a pier, where can one find a good old-fashioned snow cone...?

    Good Hawaiian shaved ice at Nalu's Island Grill in Irvine.

      Search on the word "raspados."

        Are you looking for a snow cone or shave ice? The snow cone has grit to the bite, while the shave ice is smooth, like eating fresh, really cold snow...so confusing!

        I have been told that the shave ice at the Malibu Yogurt store (same center as Coogies and Ralphs) is quite good. I can vouch for their yogurt, and they have many syrup flavors for their ices -- although I don't believe that they are freshly made from real fruit as I would prefer.

          Teri Hawaii in Gardena has shave ice.Artesia between Normadie and Western. They offer ice cream and azuki beans too.
          The Local Place (King's Hawaiian Bakery) on Western and 182nd in Torrance has shave ice also.
