3 Most Delectable Desserts

BY Ning Chao and Nuy Cho | June 15, 2018 | Feature Features

The 39 most fascinating things happening in Hawai`i's food scene.
Enjoy the cool burst of bright flavors with the Tropical Dome, $12, at Yauatcha Waikiki.

Hibiki Mud Pie
Chef Wade Ueoka always wanted a mud pie on the menu at MW, and after five years, his wife, James Beard-nominee Michelle Karr-Ueoka, finally relented. You must be age 21 and older to order the Hibiki Mud Pie, which layers Hibiki whiskey ice cream, Ka`u coffee ice cream with Valrhona milk chocolate crunch. Hibiki Ice Cream Sandwiches are also available, but by special request only. 8538 Kapiolani Blvd., Ste. 107, 955.6505

Big Island Candies’ Apple Pie
The chatter around the new apple pie from Hilo's top sweets headquarters has been overwhelming and positive. Even Senia chef Chris Kajioka thinks it’s delicious. Right now, this decadent, buttery and superflaky pie (sold frozen to bake at home) is only available at the Big Island's flagship Hilo store and KTA Superstores. Go on and satisfy your sweet tooth! 585 Hinano St., Hilo, 935.5510

Tropical Dome
When Yauatcha opened its doors last year, the sweets hit the islands like a storm. Between the picture-perfect quality of the intricately built cakes, and the well-balanced array of flavors and feather-light textures, the Yauatcha sweets are to die for. Try the Tropical Dome, a titillating match of coconut dacquoise, lililko`i and pineapple. 2330 Kalakaua Ave., 3rd Floor, Waikiki, 739.9318
