Native Bowl is Amazing!

Posted on 09 / 16 / 2013

Native Bowl serves several different variations on the rice/veggie/protein bowl theme and they are delicious. I typically go for the Mississippi bowl because I have a love for BBQ, but their one with peanut sauce is also amazing. The bowls have a good mix of rice, sauce, crunchy veggies and protein and the flavors and textures all work so well together!

I highly recommend stopping here and checking them out, you definitely won't regret it!

Pros: Delicious variety of bowls, Location is convenient
Cons: Closes early

The Broadway is the most popular bowl and for good reasons. The peanut sauce worked so well with the rice, beans and fresh veggies. It didn't feel too heavy and the flavor was just perfect. My bf ordered the Hollywood (with pita chips, garbanzo beans and lemon tahini dressing). We didn't like it very much. There were a couple of other bowls that sounded really good (Couch and...the bbq one). We'll go back :)

Pros: variety, healthy, delicious

Perhaps my favourite place to visit in Portland, it was a fantastic experience. To begin with, the bowls themselves are first-rate, as there were about six different rice bowls to choose from, with homemade sauces and super fresh veggies. Yummy and healthy! But the healthy part disappeared with the stellar chocolate cup, which is a homemade warm chocolate cake covered in cherry chunk icecream and homemade chocolate sauce. There are not enough words to describe this amazing creation. On top of it all were the exceptionally friendly owners of the cart. Do not miss!

Pros: excellent food, good value
