My friend and I were enjoying some of the many creative rolls at Aiea’s Sushi Spot when I noticed “fried Oreos” on the menu. At a sushi spot.

An order gets you five fried fritters for $5.95, but you can upgrade to sundae form for $8.95. Adding the vanilla ice cream was a no-brainer. Go big or go home.

Total fatty status.

The deep-fried Oreos look bigger than I had imagined. The server explains that these aren’t regular Oreos — they’re Double Stuf Oreos. Even better.

The Oreos are softer than usual because they’re completely encased in the dough.

You may be tempted just to order the Oreos alone, but the ice cream upgrade is worth it. The fried shell reminds me of andagi — it’s the perfect balance of crispy exterior and soft, doughy interior. It’s a little oily, but not over-the-top heavy, and the Oreos are hot out of the fryer. Because they’re so big, there’s a good cookie-to-dough ratio.

Take a bite of the fried Oreo, spoon some vanilla ice cream on top, and you have your own mini ice cream sandwich.

The ice cream is a generous portion, but you’ll need all of it to balance out all that friedness. Ice cream. Friedness. So much for healthy eating! Who would have known that such a gluttonous dessert could be found at this hole-in-the-wall?
