Fumigating A North Shore Icon: Matsumoto Shave Ice
Published on Monday, 07 April 2014
For over 63 years, Matsumoto's Grocery Store has been serving rainbow colored aloha to tourists, a sitting U.S. president and just about everyone in-between. In a plantation era storefront, they serve over 1200 shave ice a day, with almost all of Matsumoto's flavors being homemade.
"Almost all of our syrups are made in house," said Matsumoto's manager Amy Agustin. "Our most popular combinations like the 'Matsumoto' with lemon, pineapple and coconut, are flavors we've been making for a very long time and we are pretty good at making them," said Agustin with a smile.
