Holey Grail Donuts
Hawaii-born Holey Grail started in 2018 with a $100 fryer and a little hamburger trailer; now, the shop has three locations across the islands and two outposts in LA. Made with Hawaiian-grown taro root that’s been pounded and fermented to create a delectable dough base before it’s fried to order in organic coconut oil, these vegan treats are smaller than your average-sized donuts. But every bite of these soft, moist, slightly crunchy confections packs a punch, thanks to ingredients sourced from small family farms in Hawaii, like single-estate dark chocolate grown in Kauai and sweet, juicy strawberries harvested in Upcountry Maui. Flavors rotate every week from a growing list of 60—miso honey, kumquat poppyseed, saffron snickerdoodle, and the list goes on—so every time you visit, you’ll find something new to crave.
