Great place.... not exactly a restaurant
Posted on 08 / 23 / 2010
This is a difficult review to write. Let me begin here... I like this place and i had a few thoroughly enjoyable experiences here. That being said, it is not exactly a restaurant.Besically there are 2 options here. The first and main options are the Acai bowls which come in different variations and flavors and can be filled with various toppings for approximately 7 dollars you get a decent portion but while it did slightly fill me when i was really hungry it was NOT like a meal, it was more like a heavy frozen yogurt that i would get for a dessert.
The second option are the cold vegan dishes that they sell. I tried the Quinoua redoubt sandwich (very tasty) and the Meditereanean Pasta (fairly bland and uninteresting). The problem with both though, i only noticed after eating when i saw that they were not made there, but made in places which seem to have meat also.
With that in mind, this is ALASKA. And this is the only vegetarian place in the city which comprises half of the state's population. That being said i feel that Acai Alaska can fill a big hole in anchorages dining options and has already filled a few hunger pangs in my tummy.
It is hard to rate this as i see it as more of a dessert place selling a few already prepared entrees than as a restaurant but that being said the service puts this place at 4 stars. They were courteous friendly and extremely helpful, even offering us better tourist advice than our hotel. They also opened the store after closing hours especially for me and they were really there when i needed them. Thanks Acai Alaska!
Great service, Awesome desserts, Only game in town
Not enough entree options, Entrees probbly not prepared on premises
