Parnell sure is shaping up to be one lucky ‘burb, and it's all thanks to the new opening of Bowl & Arrow. The health-nut bowls of happiness are spreading the love even further, and we couldn’t be more excited.
From the brilliant minds of dynamic duo Hannah Bryan and Leisha Rae, Bowl & Arrow has become a staple classic on the Auckland foodie scene, ever since their early days at the Victoria Park Market. Expanding their foodie awesomeness even further, their new digs have allowed them to expand into salads, slices and other goodies. With a simple yet hip fit-out, you’ll find yourself immediately drawn to the drool-worthy cabinet, full to the brim with treats.
“We’ve always had our sights set on moving into Parnell.” Says Leisha, “We’re really excited to be able to offer a selection of new treats and salads, and have a bigger kitchen to experiment with new creations.”
Un-distinguishable, you’ll have seen their signature smoothie bowls all over the gram—it didn’t happen if you didn’t take a snap, right? Offering up all the classics we know and love, local Parnell peeps can count on finding the same deliciousness as the original store.
Now, we know what you’re thinking...a smoothie bowl? Sounds cringingly healthy. Well you’ll soon find yourself converted after a taste of Bowl & Arrow's top pick: the Soul Mate. Perfect for beginners (and extremely addictive) this bad boy features cacao, kumara, Pic’s peanut butter (YUM), dates and banana topped with granola, coconut flakes and freeze-dried raspberries. It tastes as good as it looks.
Letting us in on a little secret, Leisha recommends the ‘pimped out’ Brazilian bowl. The original comes jam-packed with organic acai, pure Canadian maple syrup, banana, honey toasted oats, apple, honey, coconut flakes and freeze dried raspberries. But wait, it gets even better: request for it to be ‘pimped out’ and you'll get a scrumptious helping of Pic’s peanut butter and coconut yoghurt on top #foodgasm
Changing on the daily, there’s no getting bored of the clean, green salads either. Our top picks include the supercharged Green Buddha. Think everything good and green: green beans, veggies, quinoa and a refreshing mint dressing, it’s sure to have you coming back for round 2.
And for dessert? Two words… Snickers slice. Yep, that's right, even in a superfood haven, there’s always a little time to treat yo’self. Bringing treats from Together Wholefoods Catering to this side of the bridge, you know you’re in for a good time.
Wanting to share the goodness with your mates? Bowl & Arrow’s new premises means they can now offer extensive catering services. Gone are the days of gluggy muffins—instead you can treat your team to mini smoothie bowls, raw slices and more. You’ll be the office hero.
Pretty much the best thing to happen to your lunch break, Bowl & Arrow Parnell will be serving up the goodness all week long. We’ll see you there.
