Let me start by saying if you're in a hurry, this may not be the place for you.
We started going to Kalama's when they were up on the highway. Now that they've relocated to Napo'opo'o, we just don't get down there very often. Kalani and Dana make it a point to know who their regular customers are and greet them by name...something you don't see much anymore.
The food at Kalama's is made fresh, so it takes time. Sometimes, a lot of time. That said, Kalama's serves up the best hamburger I've ever had, anywhere, ever. Our favorite is the bacon, mushroom, cheeseburger. Nope...it's not going to win health awards, but it is yummy. Fresh potato roll buns and local beef. Kalama's uses local products whenever possible...a plus in our book.
We've also had the kimchee burger...takes extra time to cook but approaches burger nirvana. I've had their fresh fish nori wraps - a little expensive for my lunchtime budget, but they're very good and the fish is as fresh as it gets.
On the downside, there are no bathrooms, so go before you go.
Kalama's is a hidden gem....well worth the trip and the wait!
