An Acai Affair: Fall In Love With Healthy, Delicious & Instagram-able Acai Bowls

If you haven’t tried an acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) bowl yet, you don’t know what you’re missing out on. And if you have, then you’ll be delighted to know that the newest acai specialty shop on the block has just opened.

Get ready for An Acai Affair!

Tucked in the heart of Katong (right opposite 112 Katong), An Acai Affair is the two-month-old brainchild of two of Discover SG’s very own ambassadors, Anna and Isabel.

They’re on a mission to raise greater awareness about acai and its countless health benefits, by making acai bowls more accessible and affordable to everyone.

A What Affair?

Acai is truly a crazily healthy treat, perfect for you health nuts out there. This Brazilian superfood lowers cholesterol, boosts immunity, is energy boosting and rich in antioxidants.

It’s a tiny berry that packs a big punch, and we wonder why it’s still so underrated in Singapore.

At An Acai Affair, the purple acai berries are blended into an ice-cream like texture–essentially ice-cream minus the guilt. It forms the crucial base of all its acai bowl and smoothies.

Their acai is also personally sourced, fresh from a Brazilian friend and supplier.

Tropical Coconut Bowl

The Tropical Coconut bowl has to be the most photogenic acai bowl out there–and that’s saying a lot! It’s their signature too, so be sure to try it.

It’s chock full of superfoods: kiwis, pineapples, dragonfruit, strawberries, blueberries, granola, chia seeds, raw cacao nibs, goji berries and coconut shavings galore.

The toppings sit atop the chilled acai base, and that makes it super refreshing on a hot day. You can even scrape and eat the coconut flesh at the end. Double win!

An Acai Affair’s acai base is unbelievably smooth–you won’t find any graininess at all. Cut daily, the fresh fruits offer a burst of sweetness and texture with every bite.

Acai Chia Parfait

The Acai Chia Parfait is similar to the Tropical Coconut Bowl, ingredient-wise, but with a generous layer of chia seed pudding to boot. The chia seeds balance out the sweetness of the frozen acai, and are loaded with nutrients themselves.

Did we mention that An Acai Affair’s acai base isn’t diluted with anything at all? That means it’s a hundred percent smooth and flavourful, without being the least bit icy or watery.

While their handcrafted combinations are a sure bet, you can also make sure all your favourite ingredients are in, by ordering from the pick and and mix menu.

The thirstier of you can also go for the wide selection of smoothies!

Secret Garden

If you walk all the way into the shop, you’ll also discover a secret outdoor garden, with cushions, pillows and mats aplenty.

Tuck into your yummy acai bowl in this cosy outdoor garden.

It’s perfect for chill nights and hearty conversations, and of course as the prettiest backdrop for your photos.

You can even come in the evening to catch movie screenings here on some weekends!

Behind The Affair

You’ve probably noticed the abundance of gyms and yoga studios around Katong. But what’s exercise without healthy food alternatives?

That’s what An Acai Affair is here for. They’ve partnered with surrounding gyms – flashing your gym pass gets you discounts! Living a healthier lifestyle has never been so easy.

The interior of the shop was also lovingly designed by the owners themselves, as are the acai bowl combinations. Chow down your acai by the hand-painted wall for personal, cosy vibes all around.

Ready to have an affair with acai?

Gorging on one of these light and refreshing acai bowls from An Acai Affair will leave you feeling satisfied and good inside, without the bloatedness and guilt.

If you think that something good for you definitely won’t taste good, then eating your own words has never been more delicious.
