Specialty Dishes: Hot Bread

Bread itself is not an iconic food for Hawaii, but people seek out the Molokai bread from Kanemitsu’s Bakery, especially when on the Friendly Isle. The bread at this 80-year-old establishment is baked fresh daily (except Tuesdays), yielding pillowy loaves with a thin, crispy crust. To get it while it’s really fresh, locals in the know go for “hot bread runs” at night. Line up at the back door from 9 p.m., when the staff finishes baking the bread; you can order it with butter, jelly, cinnamon or cream cheese and they’ll cut the steaming-hot loaves down the middle, spread your desired filling and let it melt in.
