Leonard's Bakery on Urbanspoon

Economics: Great price for fresh malasadas (Portuguese doughnuts) made with the finest ingredients. Just $0.90 for original malasadas and $1.25 for malasada puffs filled with cream.

Atmosphere: Leonard’s Bakery is super popular in Hawaii. They have a storefront and two lunch wagons. We caught up with their mobile food truck at the popular Eat the Street event in Honolulu Hawaii. The line to get malasadas was long but well worth the wait!

Taste: We tried the custard, Dobash (chocolate) and Haupia (coconut) malasada puffs and an original cinnamon malasada. Each one tasted amazing.

Service: The service was excellent. We had the chance to meet and speak with manager Darlene Young. She was super-friendly and despite the long line of patrons the line moved very quickly.

A malasada is a fried dough pastry dipped in sugar that originated in Portugal. During the late 1800′s, Portuguese laborers came to Hawaii to work in the plantations. During their migration they introduced their traditional foods to the Hawaiian people — one which became a local staple and found in numerous bakeries in the Hawaiian Islands was the “malasada.”

Leonard’s Bakery fries generously-sized balls of dough until the crust is golden brown with a light and fluffy inside. And they always use the finest ingredients which gives their malasadas a fresh sweet toasted flavor, both crunchy and chewy.

Each of the malasadas had a thin, crispy, golden brown outer layer, coated with sweet granulated sugar. The inside was soft, hot and had a moist sponge consistency and the puffs were filled with delectable cream.
