(Updated 10/6) A Hawaiian shave ice trailer at Fort Belvoir is looking to open a new location in Del Ray.

Owner Jaafar Ouardi filed a special use permit to open the new location for Le Petit Ananas Shaved Ice outside Bagel Uprising (2307 Mount Vernon Avenue).

“I am presently the proprietor of Le Petit Ananas Hawaiian Shaved Ice trailer located in Fairfax City, and I have been doing business operations inside Fairfax County as well as the City of Alexandria,” Ouardi wrote. “At present, we offer genuine Hawaiian shaved ice infused with natural flavors, procured exclusively from Hawaii. Our offerings are complemented by fresh toppings such as condensed milk, fruit purees, and mochi.”

Ouardi said the trailer currently operates at Fort Belvoir but he hopes to open an additional trailer at Del Ray. The special use permit indicated the trailer would cooperate with a nearby business for storage, electricity and water as needed.

The permit is heading to the Planning Commission for review on Dec. 5.
