My Favorite - Edit

This small restaurant has the best vegan bowls I’ve ever had. They have a few fresh healthy beverages that are always the best. Their side dishes are sooooo good too. For desert FuMu’s non dairy ice cream is next door with many flavors and toppings
I only wish I lived closer as it’s 20 mi away but still make it a dozen times a year.

Pros: Fantastic vegan Bowls, Side order menu, Staff

Cons: None

i would eat here everyday - Edit

I built a bowl and it was lovely. The people are nice, lots of options for a picky vegan.
Don't listen to the clown that said this place is just a salad bar.

Pros: onion free options, hearty, kombucha

Cons: No bathroom

We want Root. - Edit

Root was the best vegan restaurant in Boston. This place is so out of control by comparison I can't stand it. It's a salad bar. That's all it is. What idiot can't make a salad at home? You can call it a bowl or whatever you want. This is cold vegetables in a bowl and it's junk.

Why Root went away, and turned into this I'll never understand. They had a great menu, great service, and business for days. This is what happens when you get a little success as a restaurant owner and think you invented food. Hard pass en perpetuum. Thank you for nothing.

Cons: It's a, salad, bar

Fresh Vegan, a MUST - Edit

Great food! Only thing lacking was actually the service.

First tried Whole Heart Provisions at Boston Calling Music Festival where I was borderline obsessed with the seared avocado and the 2 bowls they offered there. Didn't realize they specialize in the veggie bowls and have some street food on the side and drinks too (matcha lemonade anyone? Something I'll be trying in the future.

I was feeling the street food so I ordered the Falafel Dog. When asking about the Seasame Shishitos, I mentioned i'm terrible with spice, to which my order taker said they weren't terribly spicy. To play it safe, I went with the brussels sprouts. Only AFTER I had finished my meal, painfully, and sweating a good bit along the way, did the same employee mention that the sprouts were hotter than the shishitos...

That information would have been MUCH more helpful before I painfully ate my meal.

Luckily, I was able to calm down my tastebuds with some FoMū next door.

Overall, a fantastic place for food. But it goes a long way to have an employee actually present for your questions and comments to help, especially when it's your first time there. Take note.

Pros: Great menu, FoMū (vegan ice cream) right next door :)

Cons: Staff wasn't as helpful as they could have been

bowls done right - Edit

Whole Heart Provisions knows how to combine flavors and textures to get the perfect bite. I got the Seoul Style bowl and opted to add BBQ miso tofu for an extra $2. Every single bite was packed with flavor and the crunchy sesame seeds mixed with the creamy sauce and loads of veggies was truly an experience for my mouth! I can't wait to visit again and try more menu items. Plus their drink selection is impressive with kombucha on tap or various fountain juice blends. The watermelon beet with jalapeño was particularly interesting.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff

Cons: small seating area

Excellent Lunch Stop! - Edit

My 8-year-old son and I (both vegan) are visiting from Israel, and relying on Happy Cow to survive. We were thrilled to find this adorable place, especially as they let you create your own bowls. I went with the "Mission" and was extremely pleased. The ingredient options are endless and very tasty, and the staff are so friendly. If I lived in Allston, I'd eat here all the time!

Pros: Lots of fresh, healthy ingredient options, Quick, friendly service, Very reasonable prices

Great taste and great value - Edit

This is a small but well run restaurant. You can make your own bowl or get one of the suggested combinations on the menu. The bowls are nutritious, tasty and colorful. There are also changing daily specials for juice and baked goods. There is currently a special float where you can get fomu ice cream with kombucha. The best bowl is The Miso.

Pros: Reasonable prices., Almost all menu items are gluten free. , Great tasting bowls which you can create your own

Wow! You have to visit! - Edit

I heard about this place near Grasshopper and decided to check it out. Small in size, but big on taste. Menu has some bowls to choose from and then you choose the base like marinated kale or arugula or quinoa and rice pilaf or you can make your own. I had the Miso with tofu and seriously - so incredibly good. The food feels rich and decadent but is so good for you. I'm definitely going to be a regular here. The staff is helpful, patient, and so nice, too.

Pros: Great food, great prices, So few healthy and tasty veg places in Boston. Thi

Cons: Street parking can be tough

Mix and match - Edit

Whole Heart Provisions offers a number of bowls where you can mix and match ingredients. We had the Seoul Bowl with pilaf and kale and the Mission Bowl with jasmine rice and kale.

The concept here is pretty simple (mix and match ingredients in bowls), but the food is really well done and the flavors come together nicely. We also got two sides, sesame shishitos and brussels, both of which were tasty. I'm keen to try the seared avocado next time I'm in the area.

Although everything was good, my enthusiasm is a bit tempered since I am still mourning the loss of Root, the vegan joint that previously occupied this building. It will take a bit more pizzazz for WHP to fill the shoes of its predecessor - I'm hoping that with a few more visits I'll warm up to WHP like I did to Root.

Pros: Healthy, flavorful

Delicious all-vegan restaurant - Edit

I came here on Thursday night for dinner, and again this morning to try out the Sunday brunch. The main menu offers a variety of really yummy food bowls that you can mix and match however you want. A healthy, fast, tasty meal. The Sunday brunch was a real feast. Two of us wound up eating 4 of the 6 main items, we just wanted to try it all because everything tasted so good. The grilled avocado taco had a great texture and was spiced just right. Pancakes, well, as a vegan I always appreciate when I can get a pancake and these were prepared with just the right amount of chewyness. The huevos rancheros came with a fresh salsa that offset the scramble and black beans very nicely. And the porridge was a bit hit. We'll be back, often!

Pros: food, staff, hours

Cons: music a bit loud for our taste
