Ted's Bakery...the best pies & cakes

This was definitely the highlight of my trip home this month. Anyone in Hawaii when asked about “Ted’s pies” will automatically respond “ohhhh, chocolate haupia pie” (or in my case, since I don’t do chocolate, “ohhh, macadamia nut cream pie”). But not everyone knows that Ted’s Bakery on the north shore also does plate lunches, fried rice, loco moco, and more pies, cakes and pastries than you can count.
We went for lunch on a weekday; it was full but luckily not too packed. We were unfortunately too late for spam musubi (“All sold out. You have to come for breakfast”) but got a garlic shrimp plate for lunch instead. It comes with 2 scoops rice, 1 scoop mac salad, 6 or 8 shrimps (peeled, swimming in butter and sprinkled with some nice parmesan) and a portion of sweet chili sauce for dipping. Yummy buttery goodness.

Then we moved onto the “breakfast” course, with one of their famous donuts (it’s a regular glazed donut but for some reason in a log-shape). Tasted like a cross between a donut and a malasada.
Finally, onto dessert. We couldn’t decide, so ended up with a slice of pie, cheesecake and carrot cake. They were all to die for, but the carrot cake was definitely the winnah. I would drive back out to the North Shore anytime for a slice of that heavenly cake.
