“Wonderful treat in kauai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

What can we say.......you must go and try these for yourself. We went this morning and picked up a box of 18. Our family of five polished them off in minutes and are already asking to go back. We will go again. These are sooooo good. What a wonderful warm fresh treat.

“Yum!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We ran across this stand while stopping at Kmart on the way to our hotel. They were cheap and delicious! I highly recommend them! We got the last ones of the day around 2:30 pm and they were hot and fresh.

“We lucked out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

She does not advertise so the only way I knew about this little gem was reading the TA forums. They were as yummy as previously described and the "malasada lady" is as friendly as reported. I just wished I had bought more because we polished off our six malasadas within minutes (that set us back a whopping $3). One tip - you can see if she is open as you pass the Kmart on Nawiliwili Road. If she is open, you must swing by!! You don't know if you will luck out again. :)

“6 out 5 :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We came on a Monday morning and she had just started setting up and frying at 11:00 am - we got lucky!!!
We saw it made right in front of our eyes and ordered the box of eighteen (after seeing the previous reviews, we trusted it would taste good).
When they are fresh they have this pudding soft baked taste - yummy.
My husband ate half a dozen before we drove away ;)

“Love theri Malasadas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Located in front of K-Mart at Kukui Shopping Center in a little booth that opens about 10:00 a.m. These are Portugese donuts without a hole, dipped in sugar after being deep fried. Probably not great for cholesterol but delicious and cheap.
