Mighty Bowl, an NYC chain serving Asian-inspired bowls, will open at 321 Amsterdam Ave, between 74th and 75th Streets. According to their website they’ll be opening up early next year.
The menu offers predetermined (“classic”) bowls and a “build your own bowl” option.
Classic bowls come with a variety of proteins including crispy pork belly, steak, shrimp and poached eggs; they do have one poke bowl option. Their bowls represent different Asian cuisines – Thai, Indonesian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Filipino.
Here are a few of their options:
The Shanghai: grilled steak, scallions, sesame seeds, five spice sauce, Chinese broccoli with mushrooms and their five spice sauce.
The Bali: crispy pork belly, lemongrass sambal, cucumbers, bean sprouts, pickled carrots, cilantro and Balinese lemongrass curry sauce.
The Tokyo: grilled chicken, scallions, furikake, mushrooms, poached egg, cucumber salad and smoked teriyaki sauce.
You’ll find plenty of tangy fillings like pickled carrots, mangos and red onions, crispy toppings and lots of homemade sauces (lime fish sauce, lemongrass and peanut butter curries, and miso barbecue sauce, to name a few).
To build your own, choose a base (brown or white rice, quinoa or salad), a protein, a vegetable and additional toppings.
This will be the second Asian bowl place within a five block radius. Back in May, Pokebab opened at 2047 Broadway (between 70th and 71st Streets). It is quite good (though a bit pricey).
Mighty Bowl has locations in Greenwich Village, the Upper East Side, and Midtown East.
