Unlike other açai joints, the owners of Seed and Soil leave their açai blends as-is, without throwing in additional bananas or apple juice to further dilute it — makes loads of sense when you consider that most commercial açai blends already come sweetened. Not the biggest fan of their choice of fruits (the dragonfruit and honeydew tastes really mild in comparison to the açai), but what stole my heart was the rich, creamy frozen açai. Scooped straight from those mega huge gelato tubs, it was the epitome of a guilt-free (I deceive myself) frozen treat 😋🍦

Would like to say I really enjoyed this, but...I can't in good conscience do so. Points for making my açai bowl so pretty — if only looks were everything. The açai blend was diluted (ie flavourless) and icy, melting into a fruity soup that sloshed in and out of the bowl when it finally arrived. Berries were also so so sour, not cringing was impossible. Loved the superfood granola, but everything else was nada.

Love how much toppings there were: fresh creamy bananas, sweet strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, dried persimmon, pumpkin seeds, and tons of granola (that was a mouthful). The açai base however was less satisfying. Icey, followed by watery, it's much more acidic and sour than others I've tried. Acidic like how some really sour kiwis have that cut-your-tongue mouthfeel. It's ok when enjoyed with the crunchy granola, but on its own it's a no-no for me.

Two-day old Absolute Açai introduces a different brand and blend of açai base: can't say I'm a connoisseur, but I did find it a pretty delish balance of tart and sweet. It's a little tart-er and fruitier than Project Açai's, perfect for berry fans. Currently in their soft launch, the menu's pretty concise and offers two açai bowl flavour combos as well as a breakfast smoothie. Plans to expand the menu are well in place so stay tuned. Their açai bowls may not be as meticulously arranged, but it definitely comes way faster. Speed at the cost of aesthetics - absolutely no gripes.

Spending all my time eating (and eating) cause what else is there to do in small 🌞🌞 Singapore?
