Flying into Honolulu is a great experience and something that never gets old. Just like getting a fresh hot malasada from Leonard's Bakery. Except now instead of just my family and I going there, there is a crazy line of Japanese tourists. The best part is that Leonard's didn't change itself one bit. It's still kind of shabby looking on the outside, and the service is kind of still the same. Except for Tim, using his haole charm, somehow got an extra malasada before anyone else in line and it was piping hot out of the fryer.
The Malasadas ( Portugese Donuts ) are warm fresh fragrant fried balls of dough, lightly rolled in sugar. Delicious and simple.
Either way, Leonard's is a part of an Old Hawaii that is disappearing fast, since Hawaii just got a Target and Whole Foods this year.
