Sitting here thinking about our upcoming trip to Kauai & Maui. Just remembered that we missed the malasada lady when we were there in 2006. I believe the last time we saw her was around 2002. She was cooking & selling them in front of Kmart in Lihue.

Does anyone know if she is still around. I found a couple of things on the net. One stated she was selling them on Rice St. outside of a hardware store. Another was the following obituary.

Lupe Ann Estabrook
March 3, 2008
Lupe Ann "Malasada Lady" Estabrook, 70, of Hawaiian Paradise Park, Hawaii, a homemaker, died in Hilo Medical Center. She was born in Hilo. She is survived by husband Richard, sons Frank Peter and Michael Luther, daughters Barbara Espaniola and Patricia Henn, eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Mass: 10 a.m. Saturday at Pahoa Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Call after 8 a.m. Burial to follow at church cemetery. Fellowship to be held at church hall.


Any suggestions on were to get them on Kauai & Maui?

Last ones we had were outside K mart in Lihue too. Best we've ever tasted. Don't know of any other place. Hope you find one cause we are there in a couple months.

Aloha,
We haven't been to Kauai for seven long months and things do change.
We make a point of stopping by the malasada lady outside Kmart several times every year (almost every trip to the south shore from north end of Lihue). The lady who has been selling there for all the years we've been aware of her except our first when she was outside Wal Mart is much much much younger than 70. She is much younger than me (58) but I am not going to guess her age. Weekdays only and starts a bit late in the morning - could be after kids are in school.
yummm

Aloha,
We've searched for a stand in that location without success. If it was ever true, I'm guessing it was a very long time ago.

Now you've gone and done it...reminded me of malasadas and the addiction I had to them years ago when I lived in Hawaii. Only ever got them at the county fair tho...so I never heard of the malasada lady. (but I lived on Maui)

For those not in the know: deep fried Portagee donuts, no hole. YUM

Jack are you saying that you bought malasadas outside the Kmart seven months ago?

Great. I will be there next week and I will definitely check it out. I was on Kauai two years ago & I did not see her there.
