Perth's Best Bowls
Smash your dinner plates because goodness is going to bowl you over this year!Current eating trends are all about creative one-dish meals served up in a bowl – you know, the ridiculously photogenic ones that populate your Instagram feed every morning? They tote various monikers – protein bowls, nourish bowls, macro bowls, green bowls, Buddha bowls, broth bowls, quinoa bowls, globowls and breakfast bowls in the form of smoothie bowls, acai bowls and Banzai bowls….the list goes on! Now that these sneaky bowls are branching out from breakfast to claim lunch and dinner, too, they’re making an appearance on pretty much any healthy-leaning restaurant menu in Perth. Why? Because they’re not only delicious, but nutritious and can incorporate protein, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lip-smacking sauces into one all-round dish. We are seriously spoilt for choice with some epic businesses to check out around Perth. So here are some favourites amongst the Green Goodness Community, along with some of our own to boot. In no particular order:
Pixel Coffee Brewers - Leederville
Wowee!! What a combo. The Nourish Bowl was seriously good. Who doesn’t love bacon, eggs and avo as a combo on a bed of spinach? It was finished off with some broccoli, seeds and some sesame for good measure. I could hardly find the bottom of the bowl it was so filling and full of flavour. I can’t wait to head back to the funky Leederville hot spot to try a different combo.
NOOD - Leederville
So fresh and so clean. The best way to describe a smoothie bowl from the gals at NOOD 'your morning vitality boost'. I can’t get enough of green smoothies but the fresh fruit and special mix of granola is a winning fusion in the NOOD bowl. The NOOD team have recently opened a cafe in Leederville and are always popping up all around Perth so you can be sure to find the blenders whipping up a bowl nearby!
Bowl’n - CBD
Bowl'n use a heap of fresh ingredients and throw them together in a way that's visually appealing and tasty. "I could have eaten two… okay or three" says Emma Renton - Relatable Miss Renton. Scotty from Green Goodness Co also revealed his a fave was this bad boy from Bowl’n. Bowl'n have recently reopened on St George's terrace with a new store and new menu items - so make sure you check them out! The service is excellent and is only just pipped by the incredible bowls these guys make.
Little Bird Cafe - Northbridge
"Their green brekkie bowl is super fresh and full of flavour, perfect any time of day. Add salmon or bacon too for a protein hit, but the real star of the show is the two perfectly poached eggs on top... The yolk oozing over all those crisp greens... Yum!" Jennifer Fotheringham - Chase The Red Grape
Hylin Cafe - West Leederville
"I could eat the Acai Bowl & Granola any day, any time, literally, it tastes like a dessert!" Says Stephanie Einhorn from The Wellness Web. It is the absolute perfect combination of coolness, smoothness and surprise crunchiness (texture heaven), all the while being super healthy and nourishing. Topped with banana, kiwi, strawberries, blendco superfood topping and Prospect Project Ludacrisp muesli. YUM! Head down to vibrant Hylin (at any time of day) and try one of these bowls of greatness. You won’t be disappointed!
Natures Harvest - Cottesloe
"The giant wooden bowls filled with frozen purple goodness will put anyone in a good mood. Try it with the gluten free muesli, dried figs and pistachio biscotti. You won’t look back!" Says Annette Kristen Gohl
Little Shop of Plenty - Maylands
Oh my goodness, they don’t call it an Abundance bowl for nothing. Clean, lean and green with all the summer greens plus lupin tempeh & miso sesame sauce. I couldn’t help getting a serve of the biodynamic brown rice. Great choice. I don’t think you can go wrong at this café anyway. "Everything is sensational" claims Rachel Dowdy our Goodness Goddess.
