I had my first and best ever acai bowl when I was on the Big Island. Ever since then, most acai bowls have fallen pretty short. The acai is either too icy, too watery, or too sour. The toppings are a little plain or uninspired. Wow Wow didn’t quite live up to my first acai bowl experience, but it was much better than any of the version I’ve had on the mainland.
No Ka Oi Bowl organic granola, superfood acai, local apple banana, blueberries, sprouted raw almond milk, kula strawberries, bee pollen, hawaiian honey
I didn’t get to try much of this. I’m not sure the others in my party understood what an acai bowl was.
The fruit, coconut, and acai part was pretty standard. What made it special was the coconut custard at the bottom. It was creamy and not overly sweet. It paired well with the tart acai. I was happy that the acai part was not too watery or sour. The Annoyers and I destroyed our bowl.
Strawberry Lilikoi Lemonade
Pineapple Ginger Lemonade
Our lemonade was not too sweet. The pineapple made it Hawaiian and the ginger made it a bit zingy. I mostly got the lemonade so I could get the cool reusable hipster glass. I made good use of that glass during the trip. The strawberry lilikoi was a beautiful ombre, like a Maui sunset. It was a little bit sweeter than the pineapple lemonade. We paid an extra $5 for the reusable mason jar glass. I used it again during the trip. It was very festive. Too bad I didn’t get to take a picture of it on the beach like all the other Yelpers.
8 – Very good
