A pretty location set among some lush foliage, Kalooki’s offers dishes with a Caribbean flare and from what we hear, a dash of Jamaican seasoning as one of the owners has Jamaican roots.
We asked how the drink got its name and he told us a story. Wray & Nephew ran a contest to see who could come up with the best rum drink using their rum. James, who was originally from Jamaica created a mixture using peach, passion fruit, fresh lime juice , ginger beer and Wray & Nephew and won the contest! We asked him again why he named his drink “The Happy” and he said, “Just try it – you’ll see.”

We enjoyed our time at Kalooki’s and would have enjoyed sampling a dinner of Jerk Chicken or Grilled Mahi Mahi or their Saturday night Beachside Barbeque, but we’re sure we’ll be back to Provo and will definitely return to Kalooki’s to “get happy”!
