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

Whenever I travel I have to bring some of this with me to the outer islands.No one makes a better strawberry mochi than Two Ladies Kitchen. Best to order for pickup since they run out really fast !!

If you see a constant flow of traffic in and out of this tiny storefront, then it must be a place to go to. Locals? Outer island folks (like us)? Yes. And of course tourists.. Pretty and unique morsels of mochi AND manju, and if you're lucky, a lady showed up with a tray of samples. Well known for their... More

Strawberry mochi! Ono! (Delicious). The girl in front was very polite and helpful. There's street parking right in front and it's cash only. Definitely will return!

Even if you're not familiar with Mochi, you WILL find something that will give you that "aha feeling." Known for their Strawberry Mochi, there is a whole assortment to choose from; I recommend the white nectarine mochi; their pie crust manji...I recommend EVERYTHING!!!!
