Those look delicious!
Just went and had lunch at Santouka first. At 1pm on Saturday the line was only about 15 minutes.
I was there later this afternoon, around 2:30, and the length of the line scared me off (snaking around the side and across the walkway by the dining area) The flavors of the day sounded delicious. Which did you select?
Literally zero line the two times I went to Mitsuwa in Waikiki. Really great chew and good flavors. Better than Fill Bakeshop which is my only comparison.
We got all three flavors - churro, lilikoi, and chocolate. All three are really good.
I’m gonna try to go in the morning sometime this weekend (it’s a little bit of drive down to Torrance for me, so I can only go on weekends)…how’s the line usually around opening time?
feeling too old for pop-up nonsense… no line at Kansha
I tried going to Kansha about 5 times.
Admittedly, it was always later in the night (after dinner), but EVERY TIME they were sold out of their ice creams.
I gave up.
the matcha parfait at Kansha…so good.
oh weird. we’ve only been during the day.
FWIW, there was zero lines when I went on Thursday around 3pm. Walked up and had my donuts in less than a minute
Kansha so good. Go early.

That’s a impressive day of work!
The only thing I would add to this most impressive list is mochi at Chikara. You are a legend.
But since you’re at Chikara already, might as well bang x bang 2 stores down and get Sakura-Ya’s Handmade Mochi as well! So @A5KOBE can eat 7 dessert places in 1 run, and lunch and dinner. (That’s @J_L @PorkyBelly level bang x bang now.)
LoL might as well. YOLO!
