I was in the mood for an Açaí bowl. Read good reviews about this place.
Tropical Tribe (1637 Kapiolani Boulevard, Honolulu, Hawaii). Here’s their website: http://www.tropical-tribe.com/#!
Their Açaí is supposed to be purer than the commercial product (less additives). Tried the classic tribe bowl.
Açaí and Guarana mix, granola, bananas, and topped with honey. Compared with the bowl at the mall, the taste is very earthy, not as sweet, with a very slight medicinal note. The taste reminded me ever so slightly of Chinese grass jelly that we eat sometimes for dessert (it’s also supposed to be good for balancing the system).
Since I was here (it’s kind of out of the way for me), I also tried an iced yerba mate “tea”.
Again, there was an earthy, medicinal taste to the drink. This doesn’t bother me since I’m kind of used to drinking and eating Chinese herbs.
All in all a good experience. Sure wish the location was a little more accessible to me. Although the truck is nearby the mall, it sits amongst tattoo parlors, used car lots, and xxx movie shops. Good thing during the day, most of these businesses are closed.
Heading to meet The Cat, Chefs P & p, and others for new year’s eve dinner.
Wishing all a happy and safe new year’s eve.
See you next year!
Enjoy. Eat well.
