Alana's Hawaiian Shave Ice
In 2005, you were never sure where Alana's Hawaiian Shave Ice trailer might pop up—shoppers spied it at local farmers markets, carousers ran into it at music festivals, and stargazers swore they'd caught a glimpse of it streaking across the night sky. In 2010 and 2011, they even made a steady appearance on Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach.
Today, the family dispenses its delicious desserts from not only their ice trailer but also a more permanent location: a cheerful stand named for their daughter, Alana. These newfound roots haven't affected the product, though; behind the counter, servers whip up the same frosty shave ices that made the family's original trailer so successful. They top the fluffy ice in tropical flavors such as guava, pineapple, and passion fruit, or blend multiple syrups to craft specialty combinations like Hawaiian Rainbow, Island Breeze, and Big Kahuna. These shave ices are served both plain and Hawaiian-style, which calls for ice cream on the bottom and sweet cream on top.
