Hawaii Mom Blog: Mochi Donut Roundup




August 9, 2017

Mochi Donut Roundup

Donuts in Hawaii have always been cause for much excitement, but the newest donut craze to hit are MOCHI donuts.  Chewy and in the shape reminiscent of a teething ring (most likely inspired by Japan's Mister Donut's Pon de Ring), these mochi donuts are delicious!  Here's a quick round up of where to get them!  

Liliha Bakery

Get the insta-popular poi mochi donut at either Liliha Bakery locations.  It's my least favorite of the three, but people can't seem to get enough.  Also available in maple.  $1.95 each.

Watanabe Bakery/MoDo

Their Beretania location bakes up their mochi donuts in a ton of frosted flavors and delivers to their other bakeries including MoDo located in Mitsuwa Marketplace on the second level of the Waikiki International Market Place.  With flavors like black sesame and lilikoi, I like these mochi donuts!  $1.50 to $1.95 each.

Dukes Lane Market and Eatery

The Dukes Lane bakery bakes up their mochi donuts in small batches and only twice a week (Wednesdays and Saturdays) so I was warned to arrive before 10am which is when they usually sell out.  The day I went they had lilikoi mochi donuts in plain, glazed, and coconut.  I loved the glazed and coconut!  These mochi donuts were heartier and chewier making them my very favorite of the three bakeries.  The best part?  They are priced at just $1 each!  What a deal!  Located inside the Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach Hotel with the entrance on Kuhio.
