1. Project Acai
Acai is one of those superfoods that is well deserving of its hype. The berries are rich in antioxidants that help boost your immunity, and can often be found blended into cold, smoothie-like acai bowls in Singapore. Project Acai is an acai bowl cafe that, in our opinion, serves one of the best acai bowls around. Having been around since 2015, the homegrown eatery has six outlets islandwide, across Singapore’s various neighbourhoods.
The acai bowls here are available in different flavours, all served with a blended acai base that is not too sweet. We recommend their signature Original Flower Bowl, where acai is topped with banana, granola, fruits, and superfood additions such as bee pollen, cacao nibs, coconut shavings, goji berries, and chia seeds. You can also DIY your acai bowl here! Prices differ according to outlets.

The Daily Cut is a perennial CBD favourite thanks to its fuss-free DIY grain bowls that are as satisfying as they are nutritious. The healthy food specialists take the bore and chore out of eating clean by ensuring that their range of ingredients, from veggies to meats, are seasoned well and served in sizeable portions. Their menus are seasonal and ever-changing, so you’ll rarely get bored too. Bowls are priced at $10.50 for their petite option, and go up to $17.50 for a large.

The brown rice bowl comes with roasted honey soy chicken and teriyaki tempeh, as well as zingy chilli-pickled pineapple carrots and red onions for a bit of kick. A vegetarian option is also available. If Korean flavours are up your alley, get their K-Fever ($8.50), a limited spring edition bowl that stars cauliflower rice, sous-vide chicken breast, as well as kimchi and a gochujang aioli to finish.
