“I would say red velvet cake since it’s nostalgic for me. I’ve been eating it since childhood and it has always been a favorite.”

“Probably the injoelmi bingsu from Jejubing at Ala Moana. I like the toppings and flavor.”

“There’s this place by Ward that serves really good banana pudding and I like it because it’s not too sweet. Sometimes when my mom makes it I think it’s too sweet but this one is just right.”

“My favorite dessert would be the sherbet from Baskin Robbins. Specifically the Rainbow sherbet and Wild n’ Reckless.”

“I think crème brûlée is the best because it’s dimensional and has the perfect blend of sweetness. You really can’t go wrong with it. I also used to work at a bakery and cookies are pretty good too depending on what kind it is. I love the monster cookies from Pipeline Bakery and shoutout to Kamehameha Bakery for the best poi malasadas.”
