Assembly Line Style Eats

By Jessica Tzikas

Bowls are having a moment. Not only are they fully customizable, they can also be part of a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing taste or quantity. Here in Palm Beach County, bowls have quickly become part of our go-to with local chains that offer self-assembled bowls for every taste. Whether you want something light and fresh or are craving a hearty meal, these spots have you covered.


Healthy food gets a bad reputation. With places like Bolay, that mindset will quickly change. Not only does Bolay cater to specific diets – every option on their menu is fully gluten-free – they also offer a ton of healthy, fresh options. Start with a base like chopped kale, black rice, or pesto noodles, add protein options including roasted salmon, teriyaki chicken, and/or miso glazed tofu, and top it off with goat cheese, pickled red onions, fresh avocado, and vegan sauce options like creamy garlic and herb or pineapple habanero hot sauce.

The Poke Company. Bowls in Palm Beach County, Fl.

Poke Company

There is nothing quite like a fresh poke bowl on a hot Florida day. At Poke Company, customized bowls are their specialty and with tons of options, you can take the entire friend group here without anyone sacrificing their diet. Keep things hearty with a base of brown or white rice or lighten up your bowl by opting for greens instead. The classic salmon and tuna are always great options for a poke bowl, but if you aren’t feeling fish, they also offer steak, chicken, and tofu. Add some green to your bowl with cucumbers, edamame, or jalapeno peppers and top it all off with eel sauce, sweet ginger dressing, pickled ginger, and/or tempura flakes.
