#29: Açaí—The Superfood of Vegans, Surfers, and... MMA Fighters?!
Açaí might seem like the superfood du jour, but with a cult following in communities throughout the world, this Brazilian berry has found it's way to Malaysia in recent years. Yeoh Jun Yong and Cheah Wen Khyn, founders of Cabana Açaí Bar in Publika, were one of the first to serve açaí bowls and smoothies back in 2017. Two years on, their love for açaí is still as strong as ever. On this episode, Jun & Khyn share how their mixed martial arts background led them to açaí, and talk about their motivations for bringing the superfood to the Malaysian masses.
