Why is everyone so crazy about Malasadas???
1) These doughnuts aren't like regular donuts. They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Leonard's Malasadas mastered the art of creating these delectable malasadas, a Portuguese dessert brought to Hawaii by immigrants. These deep-fried, sugar-coated doughnuts are a delicious treat enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
2) Leonard's Malasadas has a rich history dating back to 1952 when Leonard and Margaret Rego first opened their bakery. Since then, they have been a beloved institution in Hawaii, serving up malasadas that have become an integral part of the local food culture.
3) Beyond the classic sugar-coated malasadas, Leonard's offers an array of exciting fillings, adding a delightful twist to the traditional treat. From custard and chocolate to tropical fruit flavors like guava and lilikoi (passion fruit), there's a malasada to suit every palate.
4) How do you get your hands on these tasty treats? You can head over to their main location at:
933 Kapahulu Ave
Honolulu, HI 96816
Be aware that it's not uncommon for there to be a long line so plan accordingly. They also have 4 “Malasadamobiles” which are food trucks scattered around Oahu.
