Some food trucks start as brick-and-mortars and then put their eats on wheels, while others go the opposite route and set up permanent shop once the truck takes off. The latter is the case for Pat and Kristen Roskowick, the husband and wife duo behind Get Shaved, one of the first food trucks we fell in love with last year.

Augmenting their successful truck service, the couple opened their permanent spot in Northridge with a grand opening on Friday night. Blogger and LAist Featured Photos pool contributor Misty O., aka Nomsnotbombs, was on hand to check out the sweet occasion. At the store customers can enjoy their authentic Hawaiian Shave Ice with the full spectrum of delicious flavors, served solo or in combos of your creation or as dreamed up by the Get Shaved folks. In the Northridge location, though, they're chilling out with new menu items, like shakes and ice cream sandwiches, thanks to 8 flavors of Fosselman's ice cream--which you can also add to your shave ice.

The truck is still in full motion, but if you aren't where they happen to be (check their Twitter, Facebook, or website for the schedule) you can say aloha to them afternoons to late-night seven days a week in Northridge, at 9255 Reseda Blvd [map].
