I found this location on Pinterest searching for our honeymoon. I've heard about Mochi and needing to try it in Hawaii. It worked perfect we dropped in and grabbed an assorted pack. We decided not to get any with real fruit, there was a waiting line for the real fruit ones. We were fine to just try an assortment as... More

I live on the mainland but if I were to ever move to Hawaii, it would be to the Big Island just so I can go to Two Ladies Kitchen everyday. I visited many years ago with a friend who lives on the Big Island who said we have to trip their mochi. It was more memorable than the trip... More

Apparently, I've been having stale mochi all of my life as the mochi from Two Ladies Kitchen is just the best I have ever had. While they have many flavored varieties (who can resist the chocolate filled one!), their traditional red bean mochi is quite amazing. We bought a pack of the traditional as well as the flavored variety and... More

We went here because of the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. I didn't even know what a Japanese mochi was until today. While waiting to order I heard another customer rave about the peanut butter mochis, so I ordered one. And it was great! This dessert is hard to describe, but it reminds me of the consistency of an Indian... More

Two Ladies Kitchen provides the best array of mochi wrapped over fresh fruit. They're all super delicious and make great gifts too.

Went to Two Ladies Kitchen, which just a store front and no seating inside. The Mochi is made fresh behind counter. We had the Strawberry mochi($3.25) which it is well known for. The taste was incredible and so fresh.

Coming from Canada, I've only had these pre-packaged mochi or ice cream mochi before (and I love them). But when we got to Two Ladies Kitchen and saw that they had these fresh fruit mochies, we knew we had to try them - they were awesome!!!! The mochi skin and those with red beans were not too sweet at all,... More

Heard about this place from people who we were traveling with and the experience matched their recommendation. There is a large selection to select from. The strawberry mochi was great. The anko (sweet red bean paste) isn't overly sweet you can taste the strawberry. We ended up buying two dozen. The serve is excellent and the lady behind the counter... More

So delicious with a variety of flavors & textures, Nora & her team provide very high quality mochi & manju which are always a treat, even for us locals! They also experiment with local fruit & new combinations which are surprisingly delightful to try.

My partner and I had just done a grueling lava hike and decided to stop in Hilo for refreshments. I was absolutely set on seeking out these guys, as I'd read so many great reviews - I was not disappointed! As soon as I walked in, I was greeted warmly and offered some samples...there were so many, and they looked... More
