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.
