Ahhhh, just the thought is filling! This gal makes the best malasadas on Kauai!
The cinamon sugar is my choice - catch her early, she is only open till the batter runs out!
Gotta have em!

I have gone to Kauai 10 of the last 12 years, and I always have to go see the malasada lady. I think she makes the most delicious malasadas ,Portuguese donuts, on the island. Marlena, the malasada lady, is very friendly and greets everybody with a big beautiful smile. That alone makes it worth a trip, but the hot, fluffy, sweet pillows of goodness she sells are awesome
and keep me coming back. She is located to the left of the front entrance of Kmart in little green booth that her husband built for her. Her hours according to her sign from around 10am until they are gone. Some days she is gone by 1 pm and some days she is there until about 4pm. You can buy as few as three for around a $1.50, I usually get a dozen or more with sugar and cinnamon.
They also come with just sugar, either way they are the best when hot right out off the oil. If you can't eat the all right away you can heat them for a few seconds in the microwave. Just got back from Kauai and still have a couple malasadas to eat. Thanks Marlena you are awesome and see you next time.
