Being the first dedicated acai cafe in Hong Kong, Supabowl creates a variety of decadent acai bowls for health-conscious food lovers.
From homemade vegan sourdough at Mayse Artisan Bakery to full-on vegan cakes by The Vege Lab and vegan egg Just Scramble at Green Common, Hong Kong’s health food scene is evolving in an epic way. Supabowl – the first dedicated acai cafe in Hong Kong – was opened by the friendly young couple Danny and KK, and we’re excited to devour their Instagram-worthy and nutritious acai bowls.
Why do we love the acai bowls at Supabowl?
The base for acai bowls consists purely of frozen bananas and Brazilian acai powder, sometimes complemented with more healthy alternatives like pitaya, raspberry and luo han guo. It’s vegan, it’s rich in fiber and antioxidants, and it’s low in fat. What more can we ask for?
The star of the show is definitely the Cocobowl. Made by mixing acai powder with frozen bananas and coconut water in a high-speed blender, it delivers an indulgent ice-cream-like texture (or what we vegans call, #nicecream) even though no dairy is involved in the operation. Topped with a bunch of fruits, coconut chips, granola, it gives you that lovely crunch and chewiness. And the acai flavour really adds a distinctive zesty and tangy finish to it which I absolutely love.
Another popular item on the menu, the Firebowl, features pitaya (pink dragon fruit), banana and luo han guo (a sweet fruit popular in southern China and northern Thailand). It’s interesting to see how Supabowl skillfully incorporates such traditional Chinese ingredient in their acai bowls. This beautiful pink bowl is topped with fruits, cacao nibs, coconut flakes and granola. It’s slightly sweeter than their acai inventions but just as refreshing. And come on, who can resist pink dragon fruit?
All in all, the acai bowls at Supabowl are scrumptious and healthy treats approved by both vegans and meat eaters. Next time when the scorching summer heat has you craving ice-cream and sorbet, you know where to look!
Supabowl has branches in Wan Chai and Central.
