WELCOME TO ONO SHAVE ICE- bringing a taste of Hawaii to Oregon

May 9, 2011

Hello Portland!!! I am so excited to be able to announce that ONO SHAVE ICE will be opening summer 2011!  Its been a long process and a lot of planning but everything is coming together and we will finally be able to bring a taste of aloha to Portland!! Please come back and keep checking in for the official grand opening date!!!! Can’t wait to see everyone this summer!!!!

What is Hawaiian Shave Ice you ask?
Shave ice is a traditional hawaiian delight!  Unlike its corse and hard Snow Cone cousin which is crushed ice chips, shave ice is finely shaved from a single block of ice creating a soft snowflake like texture that magically melts in your mouth not crunched between your teeth. Its accompanied by wonderful flavors from the standard strawberry, grape, and lemon to the amazing tropical flavors like guava, mango, and melona.  Along with yummy flavors are the special toppings including mochi, azuki beans, ice cream, with the favorite “snow cap” to top it all off.

Where will you be able to find us?

Keeping it “portlandia” we’re joining the food cart culture. We’re gonna be roamers so keep an eye out for the “silver bullet” cart and find us on facebook or twitter!

    We love shave ice! We have been going to Hawaii almost annually for over 20 years. One of the first things we do is look for a shave ice stand. We just happened to be in Portland July 15, 2011 after returning from Maui July 7. Imagine our delight when we accidentally saw your truck. Had to stop and try your shave ice. It was just like the kind we get in Hawaii, except maybe yours isn’t packed as compact. Nevertheless, it was delicious! Now, if only you were where we live – Mission Viejo, CA (south of Los Angeles).
