Matsumoto's Shaved Ice is supposedly famous for being the "best in the world". HA! I'll just say this...its purely a tourist trap that everyone, including myself, get suckered into trying. The lines are usually really long and the shaved ice just sucks! The ice is all hard and not smooth at all. The flavors were so sweet and sugary, they reminded me of those really horrible kid's drinks we've all had. To be honest, I ate about 1/3 and threw it away. If you're in the area, I guess you could be the judge and try it just cause its so "famous". But i think you'll be disappointed though.

If you want some good shaved ice, go to this local place called Waiola Shaved Ice in Honolulu..the ice texture was like real snow and topped over ice tastebuds are watering just thinking about it! Way better than Matsumoto's!
Go here.
Don't go here.
