Cheap. Fast. Healthy.

One of my favorite lunches in Portland is The Whole Bowl.  It’s were I turn when I need something fast, healthy and happen to have cash in my wallet (sorry folks, no debit cards).

It’s a simple but flavorful meal, brown rice, red & black beans, avocado, salsa, sour cream, black olives, Tillamook cheddar, cilantro and a secret sauce they call Tali Sauce.  It comes in two sizes: the big bowl ($5.50) & Bambino Bowl ($5.00).


There are 3 locations around town, one with indoor seating on SE 44th & Hawthorne and two Food Carts in downtown.    On my last visit they were also selling cookies from the super cute bakery Two Tarts.
