Healthy and Quick with Fresh Bowl

Fresh Bowl Comes to Gastown

When it comes to food options in the city, quick often means fried. But now, thanks to Fresh Bowls opening a new location in Gastown, a well-rounded, well priced and satisfying South Asian meal can be yours.

Fresh Bowl is Vancouver’s Southeast Asian restaurant that uses authentic recipes to offer fresh, flavourful food in a fun and contemporary setting. The new location in Gastown is now open and joins their flagship location on Pacific street in Yaletown.

What makes Fresh Bowl authentic

  • Originally from Malaysia, Tommy Ng brought his flavourful Southeast Asian cuisine to Canada in 2009, opening Fresh Bowl in Yaletown to great success. Today, Tommy oversees the quality and authenticity in every aspect of Fresh Bowl’s food program. He samples every curry paste and sauce before it goes out.
  • Fresh Bowl’s menu items are prepared daily on site. Most quick service restaurants purchase pre-manufactured foods and cannot truly claim that their product is fresh.
  • The recipes used at Fresh Bowl have been developed over decades of family tradition and Malaysian restaurants.

So What’s on the Menu?

With a full menu from satays to roti, to rice and noodle bowls. Or go custom with your choice of protein and lots of veggies, Fresh Bowl offers delicious meals and snacks for everyone’s taste.

Fresh Bowl is a to-go and delivery based food option in Gastown and Yaletown, offering good food on-the-go for two of Vancouver’s bustling neighbourhoods. With a lack of delivery choices in these areas, Fresh Bowl caters to the growing residential crowds looking for healthy order-in options.
