Travelogue - Hawaii #2 夏威夷遊記2

...... @prchFebruary 2018 · 2 min read · United States · #cn


In the last post, I presented to you a brief introduction to the trip and ideal lodging. In this post, I am bringing you two wonderful experiences that cannot be missed while you are on the O'ahu island.


A malasada is a Portuguese doughnut deep-fried in oil and coated with sugar Source. A malasada can be custard-filled or simply is plain.


You may be not sure of why Hawaiians have particularly been influenced by the Portuguese culture (indeed, Portuguese sailed to Hawaii and resided there in late 1800s Source, but I can tell you that this is one snack to remember and one special moment heightening joy of your trip. Each malasada is made to order and you can see that there is always a long zig-zag queue inside the shop and the long queue goes outside of the shop at times. Please be patient :-)


Malasadas are piping hot, squishy, creamy but not oily, please do not gobble down :0). If you feel guilt about malasadas, you can wander around beaches or shopping centres scattered over Waikiki to burn some fat. But this may not help because this pastry experience must marry malasadas well with fizzy drinks HAHAHA :-)

The shop sell other pastry items but stick with malasadas, these are what probably have made the brand well known over the years.


Hawaiian dance and music evening

At Helkulani, a prestigious hotel in Waikiki, you can enjoy an evening out with some good Hawaiian music and dance and Mai Tai (a signature cocktail) on a breezy patio with a view overlooking the ocean. The restaurant there offering this unique experience should not be missed even you are not a resident of the hotel.

在威基基著名的酒店Helkulani,您可以在俯瞰大海的涼風習習的露台上欣賞夏威夷優美的音樂和舞蹈以及Mai Tai(招牌雞尾酒)。那裡的餐廳提供這種獨特的體驗,即使您不是酒店的居民,也不應該錯過。

I am putting a pause on this travelogue for a short while, so in the meantime you can have some time for other wonderful posts. I will put the next episode on shelf soon and see you until next time.

Mathowl shared this read with me. An excellent article on food, culture and history

The Portugese seem to spread their love for deep fried stuff all over the world :P

...... @prchFebruary 2018

didn't know this until I saw that bakery shop.

mathowl @mathowlFebruary 2018

The Japanese learned how to make Tempura from the Portugese.

...... @prchFebruary 2018

I thought that was only a way to show the Japanese themselves at that time were 'westernised' but didn't know it was exactly from the Portugese.

Now it appears to me the Portugese had a massive sailing empire and a strong influence over other cultures or ethnic groups.

Peixinhos da horta = Tempura.

Excellent article on history and culture! Cheers Tatsujin!
