Foodsnobs: The Bowllery
The Bowllery has a clean, positive and laid-back atmosphere and is a new addition to the UNT campus restaurant scene located in the former Katz Burger’s building.
Menu items are made fresh and packed with plenty of vegetables. The restaurant caters primarily to vegans and vegetarians but also serves beef and chicken options for the healthy omnivore’s appetite.
For a restaurant that has only been open for about two months, the Bowllery did an excellent job of maintaining their promise to provide “bowls of freshness”. Two bowl size options are available, regular and small.
The cumin chickpea stew “Sangha bowl” in a regular size, was described as a “stew and curry-filled bowl with aromatic spices and served over white or brown rice, gently simmered to provide comfort and warmth,” and filled with tomatoes, red bell peppers, onions, fennel seeds and garnished with non-dairy yogurt, mint and parsley.
The bowl was especially flavorful with no ingredient left unnoticed.
A medium option should be added, as the regular looked fairly large and the small appeared too small, but for $8.50 versus $6.50 price it was quite reasonable.
The Bowllery also serves juices and bubble teas. The Detoxifier juice consisted of kale, parsley, celery, carrots, and apple juice and was a strong and refreshing blend of super foods that felt especially cleansing. The juice was eight ounces for $4, but the fresh ingredients made it reasonable and satisfying.
Their avocado and chickpea salad served on kale costs $9 and included avocado, chickpea, tomato, red bell pepper, cucumber, romaine lettuce, red onion and cilantro served with a miso sesame dressing with garlic, rice vinegar and soy sauce. And for $3, the eight-ounce mojito bubble tea had mint tea, lime, raw sugar and tapioca pearls.
Ordering a regular size of both dishes allowed for leftovers.
For nutritious eats within walking distance of campus, the Bowllery is the perfect stop for health enthusiasts.
