Just between the 8th and 9th avenues of Kaimuki lies a new dessert shop that opened weeks. 8 Half Desserts, aptly named for its location between the two streets, offers a variety of sweet delectables — particularly ice cream, and most especially, its Hawaiian Ice Cream Pie. The owner, Robert Borling, is a local pastry chef who offers his handmade creations at several restaurants on Oahu, such as Kuni’s and Shiro’s.
Although the shop has been open for a few weeks now, it hosted a grand opening event on Saturday, June 25, with special deals off of some of its items, including $1.00 coke floats and free hot dogs.
