Before the concert (Coldplay) on Monday night, Bobby and I grabbed a quick dinner at a local Korean restaurant. It’s called Sunnybowl – Balance Your Nutrition: Well Being Korean Restaurant. it’s right next to Microsoft and so is Shoreline Ampitheatre – the perfect location. Sunnybowl is a Bi-Bim-Bap place – they only serve different types of cold bi bim bap (a rice-y salad of veggies, egg, and meat or tofu over rice with a spicy red sauce and oil). This is from their website (beef bowl). What you get looks just as fresh and delicious (see below)!
After seeing Food, Inc. (review to come) I did not want to order a meat dish. I don’t know where they get their meat and I don’t want to take chances. Even Bobby was affected by this movie and made his choices accordingly. I decided to get the regular size “Tofu & Broccoli” ($5.50 total). I finished everything but a little bit of the rice (which is hiding underneath). Those are orange slices in the upper left.
Bobby opted for the large “Shrimp & Fishcake” (seafood instead of meat!) which was $7.50. It’s a dollar more for the large, but we couldn’t tell the difference between our sizes. That’s red sauce + oil in the upper left. He finished it all, of course, except for the cherry tomato (he gave it to me).
With each dish comes fresh kimchee, red sauce + oil (premixed), and dessert. If you do takeout the dessert is fresh orange slices; if you eat in it’s a little cup of frozen yogurt. I snagged both of our kimchees and also doubled up on red sauce and oil. There’s some yummy sauce that was drizzled on top of my tofu and Bobby’s shrimp – it was brown and sweet. It was a really nice addition.
We’ll definitely be back to Sunnybowl as soon as we can. It’s cheap, fresh, healthy, and my favorite kind of food.
