Ice Garden (Aiea)

Ice Garden

99-080 Kauhale St
Aiea Shopping Center

Yelp Reviews

From the outside, it's hard to spot

This old school shave ice bowl store offers a plethora of Taiwanese shave ices. You can have a bowl with regular shave ice (full range of flavors) or you can get the much more tempting bowls with mochi, flan pudding, taro, chocolate syrup, oatmeal (never seen that before!), condensed milk, etc.

We had the flan: 2 flans, ice (shaved sooo soft), sweetened condensed milk, and mochi balls. Then we tried the taro bowl: fresh taro balls, ice cream on shave ice.

Total for the two was around $7.

Yelp reviews

Yotteko-ya (the sign also calls it Kyoto Ramen) is the home of the collagen broth: simmered for 10 hours with chicken & pork, that is supposed to be really good for your skin. And taste really good too.The special paitan ramen: the broth is more opaque from extra meat that's cooked into the broth I think
The original ramen (shoyu broth), with char siu (amazing) and veggies:
Kim chee ramen:
