There is no question that Cincinnati, Ohio is jam packed full of brilliant burgers, sausages, and steak joints, but if you are looking for something just as delicious and on the go -yet vegetarian, check out The Whole bowl on Ludlow Avenue. Not only is this vegetarian walk up window full of flavor, it also has gorgeous food presentation, and is fast af. I am definitely one for park outings this Summer, give me a blanket, some pellegrino, a basket full of yummy eats, and I am one happy mama. The whole bowl is the perfect fit for just that outing, a fast lunch or dinner, a vegetarian alternative or staple, and just eats that make you feel good. If you look good after eating The Whole Bowl, even better. When I opened my bowl, dubbed “it’s like eating a hug” everything was gorgeously placed, and THE FLAVOR and the feeling of eating fresh is just as important as the ability to receive your order in a flash, if not MORE important. It is undeniably nice and rare to find vegetarian and vegan friendly eats that fill you up, and have that heat or spice associated with marinated eats that I have grown accustomed to while living in the NKY and Cincinnati area. I ordered the Big Bowl, a comforting and healthful mix of brown rice, black and red beans, guacamole, avocado, cilantro, sans the black olives, Tillamook cheddar, sour cream, salsa, and Tali Sauce. It was a 16 oz bowl full of delicious goodness and completely filled me up for the entire day (and I am one pregnant hungry woman ). If you are looking for not so much goodness, check out the bambino bowl, a 12 oz. eat to go. All bowls are nut, gluten, wheat, hydrogenated oil and guilt free – with vegetarian and vegan options.
