What started out as a small stall in Katong has now grown to an expanding acai brand with sixteen outlets islandwide. Founded by two SMU undergraduates, Anna Ng and Isabel Lee, An Acai Affair aims to spread the gospel of the superfood's benefits while making a tasty and affordable treat for the masses. Try the Triple A ($6.70-$15.90), the most basic acai bowl that comes with fresh fruits and superfoods like chia seeds and almond flakes. If you're looking for something more filling, it also has a range of sourdough bread (From $8.90) that comes topped with cookie butter, berries or fresh avocado.
Before it became a superfruit that adorned the Instagram feeds of vegan yogis-in-training, acai (pronounced 'ah-sigh-ee') was more commonly found on the shelves of traditional Chinese medicine shops. But trust us – there's nothing bitter and herbal about these acai bowls. Topped with fresh fruits, artisanal nut butter and drizzled with honey, these bowls make for a sweet treat that might actually do you some good. Whoever said you can't have your cake and eat it too? Dig into the best acai bowls around town.
