It’s been a really long time since I’ve visited King’s Hawaiian Bakery. On my last trip to Torrance, we stopped by so I could grab some rainbow bread, guava chiffon cake and more.
There are two locations, but I prefer the King Hawaiian Bakery & Restaurant which has a bigger section of the King’s Hawaiian products. Here, you’ll find King’s Hawaiian specialty breads not available at the markets as well as their famous Paradise cake and other pastries and baked goods.
Not much had changed since our last visit a few years ago, except that the prices went up a little. But it has been a few years so that was expected.
The bread selection includes specialty items like coconut macadamia bread, jalapeno bread and their famous rainbow bread.
I love how colorful the rainbow bread is though I’ve never understood why they don’t have a sweet bread option, only a butter bread which works better for sandwiches. The colors make it seem like it will be a dessert bread or at least taste like the King Hawaiian rolls.
They also have a large selection of shortbread:
King Hawaiian is also famous for their Paradise cake, which consists of three different flavored chiffon cakes. You can buy whole Paradise cakes, or if you don’t like all the flavors, you cna get a cake with just one flavor. And if you are really looking for a bargain and don’t care for frosting, you can actually buy unfrosted cakes for much cheaper.
They also have a big selection of donuts and pastries. I love the fruit tart here but it’s so big. We once received it as a gift from a friend and really loved it.
As we were about to leave, I also saw that they have a paradise cheesecake with three different layers. I would have grabbed a slice but we had already paid for our stuff.
Oh well, next time!
They also have a restaurant section, but I’ve actually never dined there before.
