Loved this drop-in!

Came across this one from a friendly review and it was well worth it. The mochis melt in your mouth! I suggest getting the ones with fillings versus just plain ordinary ones. The famous chocolate strawberry mochi was the winner in my eyes!

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

This is Hilo style mochi (rice cakes) with traditional fillings as wellas contemporary takes on this traditional dessert. Try their mochi with strawberries, grapes, and with the extra dough they fill mini mochi with assorted candies. I personally like the lilikoi chichi dango. This is a small operation, so order ahead and expect lines.

We spend months at a time in Hilo and we always make a point of buying our mochi and manju here. And not often enough. Wish it was closer, like next door to our house. Great variety and always fresh. Shop isn't showy on the outside, plain-Jane, but don't let that dissuade you. It's definitely a necessity stop; seek it... More

Small shop in Old Town Hilo with large variety of the best mochi on the Island. Frequently buy their amazing treats. A one of a kind place.

This is such a cool little shop! They have alot of different flavors and fillings to choose from. My fav's are the fresh strawberry (omg!), liliko'i and peanut butter. She also makes fresh fruit mochi with whatever is in season. We also had the fresh cherry and poha berry mochi as well as multiple other flavors. The pieces are huge... More

This tiny shop makes the best strawberry mochi. Everything is handmade, and fresh. They only sell Japanese mochi and manju, so many different kinds and flavors. My favorite are the passion fruit chi chi mochi, purple sweet pitatoe manju, and of, couse, the strawberry mochi. Call ahead and place an order, must be eaten the same day. Imagine biting into...

Found the place by accident after visiting Hilo farmer's market. It was packed inside a tiny shop. Sweet delightful mochi. Came back next day for more, but it was closed( Sundays and Mondays). Loved them all,but the square butter-something was the best one. Easy to pick by looking at the menu with pics.

My God, is there a better treat than strawberry mochi from Two Ladies? I have a hard time believing anyone who says yes. If you have never had it, you have not lived. I mean that. Do yourself a favor, go there and eat some. Don't forget your cash money, because they do not take checks or credit cards. They... More
