Tried a mixed bowl of their seasonal mandarin orange flavor and açai.

Don’t know if it’s because I’m eating it in the hot sun at Botanics instead of at home, but the açai and orange both had this gritty taste. My friend found the gritty taste to be more “natural” which makes sense because they use dates to sweeten the bowls iirc. Personally, I prefer the smoother texture of the past. Bring it back please!

Anyway, flavours were good! I love this place. Try it out when you’re feeling outdoorsy enough to walk in Botanics hahaha

Paid around $14 for this large bowl! Loved the plentiful and fresh toppings but I feel like the açai was a bit diluted as well 😢 I’d eat this again if I was in the area, but I wouldn’t seek this out specifically

I’ve always had a soft spot for Project Açai because it was my first taste of açai back in 2015. Got the medium bowl for ~$9 iirc. Really enjoyed the generous chunk of peanut butter in the centre with an indulgent drizzle of cookie butter on top.

Though after trying other açai bowls, I’ve got to say that Project Açai feels more diluted in its flavour. And it also offers less toppings (where are my cocoa nibs), some of which are mainstays of açai places. The granola was also placed at the bottom, so it was a little soggy when I ate it.

I’ll definitely purchase this again if I’m in the area and craving some açai, but sadly, I think other açai shops have taken over my No1 spot.

ps: spot the doge in the background who’s blatantly begging for a taste of that nut butter! 🐶

Paid ~$8 for this! Though there are some imperfections in this dish (char siew was a bit tough because of the pan-grilling), they were made up by the amazing price point! For good and thrifty ramen fix, do stop by this place 🥳

The waffles provided a salty contrast to the ice cream. The rum and raisin ice cream was packed with rum-soaked raisins that really packed a punch! Had a much better experience here a second time around. 😊 Would recommend.

I’m addicted to Juju’s açai bowls ($8.80)!! I’ve ordered delivery for these bowls twice this week already. They are so generous with the açai and I really love how the crunchiness of the mulberries and cocoa nibs contrast with the smooth açai. The peanut butter on the frozen banana is also so creamy and delicious!

I would actually say this açai bowl is better than those found in Project Açai and Haakon! The açai seems less mushy for some reason and I prefer the toppings here. The usual berry toppings (like strawberries) are oftentimes sour and not very enticing at those places.

It’s clear why everyone says Hvala is where the quality matcha is. There’s a really strong matcha flavour in this drink. I got the drink with less sugar and it was very refreshing! I don’t recommend getting matcha drinks with no sugar as quality matcha can be very bitter.

Had the ice cream waffles with double scoop (speculoos and salted caramel) for $12.50. The ice cream flavours were both light and paired well with the waffle. The waffle was crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside - the mark of a well-made waffle!

Beautiful ambience inside the cafe too! Definitely a must visit for a day out with friends ☺️

I’m not a big fan of crumbly, cakey cookies (more of a fudgy girl myself) so I didn’t end up finishing the cookie. However, I did really enjoy the milk cereal ice cream and the mermaid ice cream. Would recommend a sorbet to go with the cookie, as the milk cereal + cookie combination felt a bit heavy for me.

Really enjoyed the pistachio ice cream!

My friend had the chocolate houjicha and green tea roasted rice

Got the soft serve + dough (original / oreo), 3.50 each with Burpple Beyond. Dough was delicious and nicely textured, with specks of salts interspersed in the dough as a nice contrast to the sweetness of the dough. But after a while, I felt a bit ill hahahaa. It’s amazing how one small scoop of dough can really fill you up!

I actually found most of their flavours quite bland (not sure if it was because I was a little ill that day). The most striking flavour was the Valhorna chocolate which was rich and amazing but it rapidly melted in the heat! If you’re looking for a lighter flavour - my friends got the butterscotch and Milo flavour

no $ but rlly hungry
