On Jan. 12, MoDo Donuts — located in the back of Mitsuwa Marketplace at Waikiki’s International Market Place — introduced a new waffle mochi donut. It’s made to order and available every day, but only from 7 to 10 a.m. And yes, it’s worth waking up early for.

The ad for MoDo’s newest item.

The basic waffle mochi donut is $2.50 and features the mochi donut, egg and cheddar cheese. For two slices of bacon, it’s $1 more, and if you want to round out your meal with coffee, it’s an extra $1. I highly recommend adding the bacon to get the complete breakfast experience. It adds even more umami.

The cheese layer is melted and crispy, and the bacon layer on top is delectably crunchy.

The mochi waffle donut is surprisingly airy with a light, chewy texture. I love the waffle’s grooves and crispiness.

Fun fact: This egg-in-a-hole treatment was inspired by Watanabe Bakery’s white bread grilled cheese sandwich.
