This small restaurant stand, one of many at an inside venue, located just inside the entrance, offers made to order bowls. I had the bulgogi Korean bowl. I got to tell the server exactly how much of each ingredient I wanted, or did not want....More

Every time I have a bowl I am never dissapointed! The ingredients are always fresh, the music is always on point and the wine list is incredible with some great local finds! Not to miss on a trip to the mother city!

If you feel like something different give this place a try. Friendly fast service and healthy fresh food. They are licensed but no desserts. Portions are are substantial. Will definitely be back.

I almost felt saintly after my Poke, it was delicious and very very well balanced. Had the salmon No2. Medium is generous for lunch. Now they are licensed so that's a bonus.

The new poke craze provides a fantastic guilt free meal. It is basically deconstructed sushi bowl with a base of rice or kale topped with raw fish and a selection of delicious but to add crunch, sweetness, chili and other flavors. The menu offers a...More
