“Great Place for a Quick Stop”
Review of Two Ladies Kitchen

Two Ladies Kitchen
Ranked #1 of 14 Dessert in Hilo
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We zipped through here while traveling from the Kona area to Volcano Natl Park, going through Hilo. There's a fair bit of metered street parking out front, and the place is tiny, and meant just for pickups. It's just one room where you order or grab a pre made to go box, and feel free to ask the counter staff about the various flavors. I thought the sampler to go box was worth it - a few bucks and it had different varieties of the Mochi with different fillings, as well as some form of crumb cake. Really unusual if you've never had it and completely worth the quick stop. Just note there is no where to sit inside and eat - it's a to go dessert place.

Walk in order your mochi and walk out with a box of some very unusual treats. Impossible to describe you just have to try it. I recommend the fresh strawberry, butter mochi, and grape. Actually liked all the ones sampled. Very small store with just enough room to order. Be prepared for a long list of flavors. You can order boxes of 6, 12 and etc. I found a list of available flavors online if you want to look at that first.

This tiny storefront has the most delicious mochi I've ever enjoyed! The variety is amazing and ranges from classic (red bean) to new twists (marshmallow). I have never had mochi so tender and distinctive. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Hilo.

Note: this is not a a place to sit down and sip tea with mochi. You pick them up and eat them elsewhere. For example, across the street in the wonderful park.

The place specializes in mochi, their selection ranges from traditional to what I would almost call eclectic.The fresh-fruit filled mochi are to die for (e.g., grape or strawberry). The condensed milk one is sinful. And the sweet potato one not sweet, i.e., perfect. Overall a must if you are in Hilo!

The place is tiny, but if it is not too crowded, you can see the staff making mochi in the background.

Mochi is a love-hate kind of dessert, you either love it or hate it. I love it, and Two Ladies Kitchen has the best by far. It's very authentic with the very best strawberry mochis anywhere. The grape, lilikoi, and chocolate marshmallow are pillowy, sweet clouds of perfection.

The service is good. I have read about lines, but it never has been crowded during my frequent visits to Two Ladies.
