It’s been a while since I’ve done a proper restaurant review but I can assure you I haven’t stopped eating! I’ve been mainly focusing on working on some recipe content for my readers and subscribers that you can make at home. More on that later.
Bowl Kitchen is a Pho fusion restaurant created by my longtime friend, James Noe. We go way back to when I was doing the martial arts gym with my ex-husband. James was the other half in that business. Well. since we’ve all parted ways, James has been busy toiling in the kitchen - coming up with some amazing Asian fusion recipes!
This is not a traditional Pho by any means. With menu names like Pho Sea and Pho Daddy, Bowl Kitchen merges the trendy with the traditional. One of the major draws for me is the Bahn Mi. I love a solid egg Bahn Mi like no other. Bowl Kitchen’s Bahn Mi features a BLT with an added “A” (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and Avocado), Grill Cheese and something a little more traditional like the Spicy Pork Bahn Mi. The appetizers are pretty awesome too if you love Spring Rolls and Gyoza (pan-fried dumplings). They also serve all the traditional drinks including Thai Iced Tea and Vietnamese Iced Coffee.
Bowl Kitchen is an eclectic space full of art, music and an overall laid-back vibe. They often host music events on the patio and the space is often used for events, birthday parties, and film shoots.
With all that good food, Bowl Kitchen still manages to be healthy, using only the freshest ingredients. They even grow some of their own herbs right on the patio. Many of the menu items are gluten free, msg free and freshly prepared daily.
When you’re in L.A. next or on the Westside, I encourage you to stop by Bowl Kitchen for a midday snack or dinner!
