A popular Hawaii treat in Ginowan

This bakery is renowned for malasadas (Hawaiian-style Portuguese donuts). In addition to the plain and beniimo (purple sweet potato) types, you can choose fillings of coffee, strawberry and caramel cream. Deep-fried in palm oil, they are crunchy outside and slightly chewy inside and taste great day-old. Boxes of mini malasadas make perfect gifts. Cupcakes, tarts, popular keema curry and chewy mochi-mochi breads are also available. Ask about custom birthday cakes, too. Malasadas, ¥130 and up.
