Follow the Scent of Sweet Bread
Like most things in Hawai‘i, the treats one finds to munch on are as varied as the people who’ve come to live in these Islands. From the Portuguese, Hawai‘i has adopted the malasada (a hole-less donut typically coated in sugar) and sweet bread (loaves of sweet, soft bread) as dining staples.
Here on the Big Island, some bakeries have taken the sweet bread recipe to a whole new island-inspired level, with flavorings that include tropical fruits and taro.
In Hilo, check out Low’s International Food, or head south to Punalu‘u Bake Shop, the southernmost bakery on the island
