Nourish bowls, buddha bowls, abundance bowls, whatever you call them, they’ve taken off in a big way. So much more than a boring old salad, nourish bowls combine all your proteins, grains and greens in the one meal. More importantly, they combine all of the most delicious foods—from avocado and hummus to poached eggs and halloumi—in one bowl of goodness.
But where to find one? Here are 9 of the best nourish bowls in Perth.
Someday Coffee Co
This pastel coloured haven in Floreat is so well put together it hurts. With a crisp white Marzocco coffee machine sitting on top of the pastel pink counter, Someday Coffee Co feels a little like an old diner, without any of the tacky bits. Their buddha bowl comes with sweet potato falafels, quinoa, a generous chunk of avocado, turmeric sauerkraut, kale, zucchini and carrot ribbons, pickled onions and more, all topped with a fried egg and some delicious dukkah. This is the stuff dreams are made of.
Experts at all things healthy, just about every meal in the fridge at NOOD could fall into the nourish bowl category. The salmon sushi bowl has always been a favourite, as has the cauliflower nasi goreng—with either chicken or tofu. The earth bowl with chicken and roasted veg will please just about anyone, or if you're after breakfast, the vegan balance bowl with housemade baked beans, kale, smashed avo, mushies and roasted tomatoes will hit the spot.
Dedicated to the Bowl’n way of life, these guys do some of the meanest salad and smoothie bowls going around. You’ll find fancy things here, like their Tasmanian salmon bowl with sushi rice, edamame, coriander, kelp noodles, pickled ginger, furikake, nori crackers and fried shallots. They also have a bowl with Kangaroo, wild rice, kimchi and all other sorts of deliciousness if that tickles your fancy. If not, there are plenty of safe options like the chook bowl or the vego bowl, and if all else fails you can build your own.
Flora & Fauna
This tiny but mighty cafe in the heart of Northbridge should win an award for aesthetic value alone. Everything on the menu at Flora & Fauna comes with a rainbow of fruit or veg, fresh herbs and edible flowers—their rainbow bowl is no exception. It comes jam-packed fresh and pickled vegetables, grilled tofu and a delightful tangy sauce—a technicolour feast for both the eyes and the taste buds.
Little Bird Cafe
The green breakfast bowl at Little Bird Cafe definitely falls under the nourish bowl category. It’s got all your greens like avocado and spinach, plenty of veg—the mushrooms are delish—and is topped off with a satisfying poached egg. This bowl wins extra points for ticking off nearly every vital nutrient on the food pyramid.
Eat Drink Raw
Eat Drink Raw is all about the healthy options, so it's no surprise they do a dang good nourish bowl. We love their raw Asian crunch salad which is full of avocado and a garlic tahini sauce that will knock your socks off. Health-freaks of the lazy variety will be happy to know you can now get it delivered thanks to UberEats.
A healthy retail outlet and cafe all rolled into one, Nature’s Harvest offers a huge variety of nourish bowls, but we like the build-your-own harvest bowls from their hot food section best. All you need to do is swan over to the counter and point at what you want to create the bespoke bowl of your dreams.
Pearth Organic Kitchen
Bowls are like bread ‘n’ butter for Pearth Organic Kitchen. Their OMG omega bowl of baked salmon, quinoa, orange and spinach slaw, topped with lime and coriander sauce makes eating a balanced meal oh so achievable (and delicious). Their macro bowl is also a must try, packed with spring vegetables and topped with all your favourite things like avocado, brown rice, hummus, dukkha and house made tahini dressing.
The green veg bowl at Hylin is everything you could ever want in a nourish bowl. Serving their seasonal greens and quinoa salad with a poached egg and grilled halloumi on top—being healthy has never been so easy, nor satisfying.
