Brandon Baptiste is the Co-Owner of Wailua Shave Ice, a Hawaiian style shave ice made with local fresh fruit. For years, Brandon worked in the kitchens of the most well-known restaurnats in the continental United States, including Per Se in New York City. A few years ago, Brandon returned home to the island of Kauai and opened Wailua Shave Ice. “The drive to opening Wailua Shave Ice here on Kauai was to just do something where we’re at home.
