Assortment of mochi and manju (Japanese snacks)

They have all flavors and types including ones with fruits in them. My favorite is the strawberry mochi.The mochi is very soft.

Tasty! Tasty! Tasty! These ladies make the freshest mochi I've had in years. The fillings are great and the texture is unbelievable. This small storefront hides a real gem.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Mochi of any variety, but I haven't been let down in depending on recommendations in my trusty "Big Island Revealed" guidebook. We ordered in advance on the same day and picked up our Strawberry Mochi on our way to Dolphin Bay Hotel in Hilo for our two... More

When my friend told me about this place, I wondered how good mochi could be. I'm glad I went because Two Ladies Kitchen has such amazing mochi. It was the right amount of chewiness and they have tons of flavors. Definitely check it out!

There are very few fresh and innovative Mochi places in the USA. Just a few in California (LA and SF areas) and certainly this place in Hilo. This place is very innovative and has several specialty creations such as their Strawberry Mochi and several others based upon Island fruits such as lilikoi, papaya, etc. if you are A fan of...

Get there early before your favourite flavours sell out is my advice. They open at 10 am and people arrive to sample their fresh fruit moochi and other assorted flavours. You can see the team making moochi in the back which is interesting. All are serviced in cute ribboned boxes so they make great gifts if you can resist eating... More

Their strawberry mochi is one the best treats anywhere. A bit pricey, but overwhelmingly popular among all demographics. Great to see look on people who try their very first one. Important, though, to understand it shouldn't be eaten immediately out of the box. They're best when they're chilled. Never eat at room temperature, cold them down and see what makes... More

Returning home for a visit is always 'mo betta' with a stop or two at Two Ladies Kitchen. I can recall picking poha from the bushes as a kid and here they are wrapped in soft mochi! Preordered 6 small assortments as omiyagi for my mainland relatives and had the kitchen shrinkwrap it for freshness. The family was impressed!

We stopped by for some mochi on our way to the botanical gardens. It made an amazing snack to have while admiring such an amazing view. We ordered a variety pack and the strawberry mochi. It was great to have a bite of everything but we can see why the strawberry mochi is often a winner. It was so darn... More

I guess if you like these, this is the place to go. There was a line out the door, and everyone was excited about how great the mochi is. We went pretty far out of our way to try it, and if you don't already like mochi, I would say it must be an acquired taste. It's just this doughy,... More
