Malasada
Malasada
Malasadas are a Portuguese confection, like a donut without the hole. It is a yeast dough that is fried in hot oil and rolled in granulated sugar. Traditional malasadas are unfilled. We also offer cream-filled malasadas that are lightly dusted in powdered sugar.

At our Lower Main location, we sell piping hot malasadas, made daily from 5-10 a.m. and 4-10 p.m. Order them plain or cream filled! The perfect ending to a delicious meal!

Mardi Gras ("Fat Tuesday"), the day before Lent, ...is Malasada day in Hawai'i. Being predominantly Catholic, Portuguese immigrants would need to use up all their butter and sugar prior to Lent. They did so by making large batches of malasadas, which they would subsequently share with friends from all the other ethnic groups in the plantation camps. This led to the popularity of the malasada in Hawaii.
