We <3 Hawaii

Here is my part two of Oahu eats.
933 Kapahulu Ave
Honolulu, HI 96816
Leonard's is a bakery that is famous for their malasadas. Malasada is a Hawaiian donut that is fluffy, covered in sugar. We didn't realize that malasadas are huge, we bought six and we stuffed ourselves. They had some that were stuffed with all sorts of things but I would stick to the original. Look how happy we are! YUM!
64-1550 Kamehameha Highway
Wahiawa, HI 96786
Dole is obviously famous for their pineapple and they have the world's largest pineapple maze, information about their pineapples as well as a walking tour. If you are looking for some eats don't worry, they have a food court. We got the pineapple soft serve and of course Loco Moco.
Matsumoto's Grocery Store
66-087 Kamehameha Hwy
Haleiwa, HI 96712
Matsumoto's is the original shaved ice in Hawaii and you should definitely go. They have fun t-shirts and you can tell by the long lines that they are clearly famous. Although I enjoyed the shaved ice my favorite is Waiola but you should go to Matsumoto's first to say you've been then head over to Waiola.
Waiola Shave Ice
Hands down the best shave ice you will find. The ice is so fine that it almost tastes like cream. Yes, shaved ice that tastes like ICE CREAM. My favorite was the orange creme with a scoop of vanilla. I liked it so much I went 3 times, the husband twice.
1010 University Ave
Honolulu, HI 96826
Mochi ice cream. They have many flavors and they are delicious. They sell Bubbie's in the frozen section at Whole Foods in NYC but fresh is the best here. Try the sakura, I was surprised how tasty it was since I normally don't like florals.
If you feel like dim sum, go to Chinatown and head over to Legend. It was pretty good but honestly after having dim sum in Hong Kong, nothing satisfies my tastes buds. But we did eat quite a bit here and is the best dim sum you can get in Hawaii.
Need a quick snack? Need to take some food to the beach? Go to 7-11 and get some spam musubi and be happy. Love, love, LOVE spam musubi!
There are so many great eats in Oahu and I am again disappointed that I didn't take pictures. But these plus the previous entry will give you plenty of highly delicious eats. Enjoy!
