I connected with Vickii, a food, travel and lifestyle blogger based in Singapore and she suggested meeting at Haakon in Holland Village – “They have good Açai and coffee”. The place is small, but the big windows, high ceiling and clean simple lines of Scandinavian-style décor make it look spacious.
I chose the small “Haakon’s Classic Açai Bowl” with chia pudding at the bottom, and topped with berries, granola, coconut flakes, blueberries, banana and strawberry. You can quickly tell how good a bowl is by the freshness of the ingredients and topping mix. Mine was good! I prefer this bowl to the one I had at the Project Açai outlet in Takashimaya (they aren’t bad). I took a scoop off Vickii’s “Green & Lean” smoothie bowl – a blend of mango, spinach, spirulina and banana topped with almond butter, chia seed parfait, granola, goji, coconut flakes and seasonal fruits.
This is another place for healthy food and the first in my series of Blaast Places in Singapore, the paradise for foodies.
