Not just another Acai Shop… we promise. OKAY, so I figured its time that we should all address the big elephant in the room. WHY are there so many acai shops popping up everywhere? WHY should I care? HOW can I choose a good versus bad acai shop? And when will it stop… hopefully never in our opinion. With all of that off the table, we’ll begin by addressing: what actually is acai anyways? Acai isn’t just some fad that came up out of anywhere, and anyone with a passion for healthy

While I’m sad that summer has come to a close, during the month of September I always find myself somewhere stuck in between living in a permanent summer state of a mind and on the other hand day-dreaming about drinking a cold hard cider at Penning’s Orchard after a long day apple picking and everything else FUN that Warwick, NY has to offer. Anyways while we close up the sunshine season and open our doors to the crisp air of a New
Hey guys! Happy… Sunday of the Summer… August! Can you believe that one? Craziness. It’s been a minute since I’ve written anything for you and I can contribute that entirely to the opening of our second location that opened up just over a month ago at 110 Washington Street, Hoboken, NJ. If you haven’t stopped by- be sure to check it out- we have an entirely new scene for you with a ton more of the food you know and love (tacos, avocado eggrolls, pulled pork, galore!)

Summer’s here and people are in full “fit” mode.  So I figured I’d kick off summer with a pretty short but sweet read breaking down two popular diet trends that have made their way into many people’s lives in the last year or so. Whether you’ve done it yourself or not, you’ve surely heard of the new popular keto diet and the well renown whole 30 diet.

Hey guys! So it’s 2017, and with the start of the new year we’ve had our customers come in with all different types of dietary restrictions from completely gluten free just because, to the Whole 30 Fad, and we can only offer a little bit of advice here at Shaka.
