Hawaii was a life-altering experience for Kiersten and Krista Gormeley, owners of Shaka Bowl in Hoboken, New Jersey.
“When my sister and I lived in Hawaii, we found acai bowls actually this weekend three years ago,” said Krista Gormeley.
The acai berry is full of antioxidants. Each bowl has the acai blended into a smoothie consistency. The berry helps to brighten skin, fight harmful organisms, assists in losing and/or maintaining a healthy weight and promotes skin health.
Skaka Bowl also features their poke bowl, which is a deconstructed sushi, according to employee, Brianna Peguero.
According to their website, “The Shaka version of poké is your choice of sticky white rice, brown rice or mixed greens topped with your choice of protein, mix-ins, and finally garnished with one of Shaka’s signature, savory sauces of your choice.”
Determined to bring the Hawaiian culture to the East Coast, Kiersten and Krista opened Shaka Bowl five months ago.
