The concierge at the hotel here in Hawaii recommended stopping at TEX Drive In on the way to the volcano. TEX is famous for, and heavily promotes, something called a malasada. I thought this would be something spicy, like a marsala sauce. Nope… I’d stumbled upon donuts on the island of Hawaii.
Malasadas are big fluffy pockets that can be eaten plain, or with a variety of filling options. I opted for chocolate filling in lieu of my usual chocolate frosted. Bavarian creme is the #1 flavor and there are a variety of fruit flavors too.
