The sole idea of going to the park with your kids, pet, partner, book, or whatever/whoever wants to go with you, sounds like a great plan. If the day is sunny, even better. And if you take the best acai bowl in Los Angeles with you, well, that is my definition of paradise.
Roots and Rye Bar
Echo-Park If I were you, I would think that this article is probably exaggerating. Well, for you to believe that I am not, let me show you what some customers have said.
Kathy M., for instance, argues “I really wish I lived in LA because this is my absolute favorite place for acai bowls. I’ve had many in my life and every time I read the reviews for other places, there’s always at least 1 or 2 people who say it’s “the best”. And I end up getting disappointed because it just tastes like any other acai bowl. However, I do agree with everyone who is crazy about Roots & Rye. It REALLY is the best.”
The bar is situated at 2134 Sunset Boulevard, just two blocks away from Echo Lake Park. And that is not all: they also have a free shared parking lot. Seats and tables are online outside, but considering we are in summer I would not count that as a problem.
Their menu includes a variety of vegan smoothies, milkshakes, ice cream, toasts, and the star of the show: acai bowls.
In the same way, the old “Choose your own adventure” books work, in Roots and Rye you get to pick your own Acai Bowl. Once you have chosen the size (small, medium, or large) and the base (seven different options that can be combined like acai, dragon fruit, oats, etc) you can fill it with as many toppings as you want. Our pro tip is not to fill it too much, or you will not be able to dig your spoon into the bowl.
You can do the math yourself because, with at least thirty-seven toppings options, the different acai bowl possibilities are almost endless. Apart from the obvious strawberries, blueberries, or bananas, they also include some exotic options like “blue Majik” “agave” “spirulina” or “turmeric”.
