Where to find Butter Mochi

So - for our trip next month, I have a quest to find as much Butter Mochi as possible. I’m addicted to the stuff, lol. So far only three places I know May have it. Where else?

Wong’s in Hanapepe

Mark’s Place

Here's a recipe to try when you get back home.

Have you tried the Menehune Food Mart in Lawai? I know they have great musabi and malsadas so maybe they have mochi??

They have mochi. You can maybe pick some up when you are visiting S Shore friends?.......

Aloha from Kaua'i!

The only place that I know consistently has it is the Lawai Menehune Market -they have it everytime I go in there at least....along with spam musubi, tuna musubi, and sometimes bbq chicken musubi - also chi chi dango and cascarone, make sushi and whatever else they happen to have that day!

Other than that - I score it at garage sales a lot and sometimes the Lawai Country Store on Koloa Rd. has it as well at the counter along with the other goodies.

Malama Pono,

Lawaii Menehune Market has had it every time we've tried - unless we were foolish enough to wait until afternoon when it's been sold out.

I'm confused! Is this market on Hwy 50 or Hwy 530 (Koloa Rd)

I read on Yelp that there is a market with the same/similar name that is closed.

It's on Hwy 50, and it was open this summer.

The market was open as recently as a month ago. However, the adjacent restaurant, Mark's Place, moved to a new location a few years ago.

Maybe that's where the confusion is.

The Lawai Menehune Mart is open right now on #50.....the Kalaheo Menehune Mart closed last year when Times took over Big Save...(Big Save had owned the M.Marts.) I don't know of one on Koloa Road. I drive it 4x every day.....
