Anyway, I'm not in Honolulu and I am still in Los Angeles so I won't be going to either of those places. Aside from just being away from Honolulu, I am also unable to eat because I'm having some medical things done today. If I was able to eat, I thought I would substitute the malasada binge with something local to this area of Los Angeles that I am at. Well, by local, I mean it's from a local bakery and not necessary a local type of food. The place I would chose to go to is called (fōnuts). I could walk there from where I am in about 15 minutes because it is right down the street from here.

Well why is it called "(fōnuts)" and what is it? Click the link to see their website for the full explanation, but it's a donut that isn't fried. They are all baked using techniques that result in a delicious flavor and texture. Sure these could be just cakes baked in the ring shapes, but I'm sure if you use a regular cake mix and try to bake it in the shape of a donut, it just won't be the same.
Here is what I have been able to try so far... yes, I enjoyed them all and would like to try more flavors! :)
|My first time I tried a savory Chorizo & Cheddar Cheese for "lunch"|
followed by a Strawberry Milk (fōnuts) for dessert.
|The 2nd visit I had a Rosemary & Olive Oil (fōnuts) for lunch.|
|Next I tried a Gluten Free & Vegan (I think) Lemon (fōnuts). I tastes good.|
I can tell it is a GF because the consistency is slightly dense & moist.
|The last one (so far) that I've tried is the Vanilla Cream filled (fōnuts).|
Oh this was way better than any malasada and I don't care for
the filled type malasada either. This was like a delicate pastry in the
shape of a donut. Yum!
