Grain bowls, nourish bowls, poke bowls and Buddha bowls have been the rage all over Pinterest and are a hugely popular form of healthy eating. Basically, anything goes when it comes to bowl making, as long as it’s fresh, flavourful and healthy. But like anything that starts to take over the zeitgeist, there’s a lot of noise and competition and, quite frankly, some pretty average attempts. So to help you sort through the noise, we’ve found some of the best places to grab a delicious buddha bowl. If we miss one of yours, as always, let us know!
