Kalalea Juice Hale is one of the many roadside market stands that sell Hawaii’s many gracious gifts in the quaint town of Anahola. Fruits, vegetables, flowers, and fantastic fresh culinary creations like no other in the world. Kauai Island is a marvelous area with one road surrounding the Island. Locals and visitors travel this popular stretch to explore the many sights, sounds, and experiences this part of the country has to offer.
This is where Kalalea Juice Hale enters the picturesque story. Along this stretch of beautiful highway, you’ll see many stands, shacks, huts, and even the backs of trucks filled with the season’s freshest harvests. One, that stands out in the beautiful crowd is Kalalea Juice Hale, a family-owned business that has been providing the community with delicious, healthy fruits of their land for generations.
Look for the charming bright orange shack-like building on the left side of the road. It’s right across from the general store. An artistic sign complete with a hula dancer helps you locate this local landmark. Kalalea Juice Hale features a different style menu than other stands you’ll see along your adventure. One of their most famous menu items is the terrific Acai bowls that are packed full of seasonal goodness. The culinary genius that owns the business creatively has named three levels or sizes to help guide you. They are appropriately named, the O.G., The Next Level, and the King Kong.
Why The King Kong, you ask? Well, not only is it loaded with good-for-you delights, to make you strong as King Kong, it is named for the breathtaking Kalalea Mountain range in the distance. This gorgeous landmark is referred to as King Kong because it looks similar to a large gorilla. Hawaiian folklore believes that this is the place where all souls enter the earth when they are born. How cool is that? Visitors frequently enjoy their Kalalea Hale treats while viewing this spectacular sight. It’s the perfect place to relax and take in the amazing fresh air and breathtaking view that resembles a storybook scene. The palm trees create a canvas for the spectacular mountains touching the deep blue sky. The clouds seem to dance joyfully among the gorgeous view. If you are lucky enough to visit during a shower you might see a spectacular rainbow arching over it all…like a gift from a higher spirit. Talk about picture-perfect! Bring along your camera and a smile because you’ll be doing a lot of smiling at this happy place.
Now let’s talk about the menu that is hand-written in chalk in this colorful, cheerful, and welcoming spot that you just have to experience to understand how awesome and aloha it is.
