Weekend Tasty Tidbits: donuts, sushi, musubis, coco puffs, pancakes & waffles


National Donut Day is celebrated on the first Friday in June of every year. We left the house extra early so that we could make a pit stop at Purve Donut Stop to get some fresh, made to order donuts for National Donut Day.  

The boys like to watch the assembly line. Today one of the owners was working line because of how busy it was.  And this was at 7 am!

The boys always order the Unicorn Butt Sneeze (left) and Smurf Balls (right).

And because it was National Donut Day and there were three of us, we got three FREE Liliko'i Pour Over Donuts!

On Saturday morning, we went to Got'z Grinds to pick up musubis and snacks for a all-day camp for the Boy Scouts. 

At 7 am, Got'z was fully stocked with their large selection of musubis, bentos, and other local favorites. 

I always feel like a kid in a candy store when I first walk in.

The musubi sampler is a great option for those who want a variety of musubis!

The salmon patty is one of my favorite non-musubi items to buy here.

We enjoyed a late lunch at Kuru Kuru Sushi in Pearl Kai Shopping Center. I used to come here often after tennis matches and practices. They now have two locations (the other location is in Kahala Mall), and they no longer run the conveyor belt. You place your order with the server and they deliver your selections to your table. 


It's still a great place for affordable, casual sushi. 


I always have to order the salmon at these sushi places.


The boys like the udon (they are not seafood lovers, yet ...)

We celebrated a special birthday in the family, and instead of a birthday cake, the family ordered a Coco Puff Cake from Liliha Bakery!

What a great alternative to a traditional cake! Everyone was amused by the concept - Liliha Bakery's famous coco puffs, pieced together by a THICK layer of Chantilly.  

Just look at how much Chantilly is used as the frosting. I had to actually scrape it off from my coco puff because it was just too much. But what a tasty way to celebrate a special occasion. I believe you can order this cake with green tea puffs or cream puffs as well.

Our final tasty meal for the weekend - breakfast at Liliha Bakery! We met up with a few families and thankfully they placed us in the back of the restaurant in a semi-secluded area because the five boys made a lot of noise! Must have been the sugar rush from the pancakes and waffles! Liliha Bakery's Nimitz location was the perfect gathering spot for us because it's very large, can accommodate large parties (we had 11 in our party), and they don't mind issuing separate checks. They are always very accommodating and the service is always great.
