Matt Anderson's Take
Paalaa Kai Mini-Mart, which is located right next to Paalaa Kai Bakery, offers all sorts of mini-mart goods but they're best known as a place to grab some pre-made meals that are ready-to-go. It's a great place to stop for some quick and cheap eats when your heading to or coming from the north shore.

Popular items here include the spam musubi and fried chicken but they have many other local favorites as well.

Great little mini-mart on the North shore. It's in Waialua, so you don't have to deal with the hassle of Haleiwa. They have some great local dishes and the prices are on point. The fried chicken bento is pretty delicious. And you can stop in the Paalaa kai bakery next door to get some snow puffs for dessert. Definitely recommend if you want to experience a local shop.

Two words for Paalaa Bakery: Snow Puffies. Like Leonards is known for its malasadas, Paalaa Bakery is a favorite on the North Shore for Snow Puffies, which are a custard filled eclair pastry, topped with chocolate and sprinkled with powdered sugar. It's easy to get hooked on these, but they aren't exactly diet food.

Paalaa Bakery also offers other tasty items such as apple turnovers, malasadas, and danishes. It's all really good, but like you'd order shave ice at Matsumoto's in Haleiwa, you can't miss out on Snow Puffies at Paalaa Bakery.
