The name really says it all… When hunting for a refreshing, cold, filling, yet flavorful meal nothing beats the Hawaii heat like a fresh bowl of fruit and other frozen treats. Mo ‘Ono Hawaii makes killer acai bowls and tops them with vibrant fruits, shaved nuts and a menagerie of tasty toppings. This sometimes snack can easily become a whole meal, or just an appetizer to wet your tastebuds if you don’t mind sharing.
Mo ‘Ono started out where most brilliant foodie ideas are developed — in the kitchen. This is a local take on the worldwide health food craze that has swept the country. Mo ‘Ono adds a unique twist to the now very commercial acai bowl which is usually loaded with sorbet, fruits and topped with various sauces.
Local? Yes, I say local… their toppings include poi, lilikoi and ulu. YUM!
Overall, the bowls are super fresh, made with aloha, innovative and delicious. I would say it’s well worth the wait and really great value. This humble family-run business is known to sellout so make sure to go early or check their social media to see what they have left, or if they are open.
