We stumbled across Two Ladies Kitchen on the way to doing laundry - but what luck! Nora, the owner, has very high standards for her mochi, and I am pretty sure that there is no place like this anywhere else in the USA. The shop is tiny, but the artisans in the back crank out the gorgeous and delicious hand-made... More

If you like Mochi, you'll love Two Ladies Kitchen. We purchased a box for a friend in the hospital, and they did a lovely traditional Japanese gift wrap. The flavors are too numerous to mention here. A must stop to see for yourself.

Love love love their Mochi! Nothing like fresh Mochi! Never was a fan of the Peanut Butter cup Mochi till now! Get the Brownie Mochi! Soooo good! If you know what you want, call in your order! Maybe try the Strawberry Mochi!

I have gone to Two Ladies Kitchen several times for mochi and manju. There usually is a line out the door, but no worries. It is worth it. Their signature piece is mochi - covered strawberries..the mochi is so light and smooth! You think there is chocolate inside, but is just azuki bean. The mochi covered grapes are also the... More

If you like mochi, Two Ladies Kitchen is the only place to go...a great variety of styles and tastes available...the strawberry mochi (when available) is incredibly good. Try any of their creations...you will be a mochi believer!!

The first day we went to Two Ladies Kitchen was a Monday and they were closed. I was so disappointed, so I went back later in the week and they were open that day. They had a sampler tray of different kinds of mochi (pounded rice confections) to try and every one was delicious. I did not try all of... More

We Read great reviews about two ladies so we chose a bunch of mochi to try. They are absolutely the best! We had mochi before from asian supermarkets but they can not be compared. The ones with fresh fruit are a special treat. It is a small place and you may need to wait outside 10-15 minutes. We visited the... More

I found this location on Pinterest searching for our honeymoon. I've heard about Mochi and needing to try it in Hawaii. It worked perfect we dropped in and grabbed an assorted pack. We decided not to get any with real fruit, there was a waiting line for the real fruit ones. We were fine to just try an assortment as... More

I live on the mainland but if I were to ever move to Hawaii, it would be to the Big Island just so I can go to Two Ladies Kitchen everyday. I visited many years ago with a friend who lives on the Big Island who said we have to trip their mochi. It was more memorable than the trip... More

Apparently, I've been having stale mochi all of my life as the mochi from Two Ladies Kitchen is just the best I have ever had. While they have many flavored varieties (who can resist the chocolate filled one!), their traditional red bean mochi is quite amazing. We bought a pack of the traditional as well as the flavored variety and... More
