An Atlantan Visits The Island: Oahu Pit Stop 5 – Donuts!

Leonard’s Malasadas Mobile Wagon: Kamehameha Hwy, Oahu, HI, USA

I usually never give a five-star review but I gave one on Yelp: these donuts were the best that I have ever had. This is coming from someone who does not have a sweet tooth and has had donuts in major cities like Atlanta, New York, Baltimore, San Francisco, Chicago, and LA. At first I was hesitant as this was their mobile wagon and not actual bakery/cafe. However, these were amazingly fresh.

We tried several flavors: original, custard, coconut, lilikoi, and li hing mui (preserved plum).

– piping hot
– large quantity for a donut, way bigger than any of your typical cake or yeast ones
– not too sweet but just enough to satisfy a sweet tooth
– goes perfect with coffee or tea

– not for a clean eater: eat it on the street and not in your car because it will get everywhere

I highly recommend this. We picked up a couple of these after we went sunrise snorkeling at Hanauma Bay and it was the perfect breakfast snack after a brisk morning activity. Definitely would recommend. Service was attentive and fast. Can’t wait to try these again the next time I am on the island.  You can find them here:

636 Kamehameha Hwy
Aiea, HI 96701

No star summary needed because it is five.
