Chrissy, is a huge fan of acai bowls. Ask her and she will recite her favorite places, island wide, where she scores her bowls. Accomplices in many things, this wasn’t one of them – that is not until the day I had an acai bowl from Nalu Health Bar & Cafe.
We chose to cover Nalu Health Bar &Cafe in Kailua because I’d been raving about their fresh salads and perfectly prepared ahi.
Being Chrissy’s first visit, she wanted to try the ahi but not at the expense of missing out on an acai bowl opportunity!
Chrissy – “Will you help me eat the bowl?”
Me – “Meh”.
That changed when Jorge Munoz, one of Nalu’s co-owners, gave me the low down on their specially imported Acai that comes straight from the Amazon and described the deep purple color that demonstrates purity and authenticity.
From the first bite it was unique, better and less “processed” than any acai I’d eaten before. At Nalu you actually taste acai and it’s delicious – they’ve set the bar! So now when Chrissy wants company to get an acai bowl, I’ll join her on the condition that we go to Nalu Health Bar & Cafe. Fortunately, with the opening of their second location at South Shore Market, it’s right down the block.
