Mighty Bowl, an NYC chain serving Asian-inspired bowls, is now open at 321 Amsterdam Ave, between 75th and 76th Streets. We discovered they’d be opening on the 2nd from an Instagram post by @digsrealty.
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.
Mighty Bowl has locations in Greenwich Village, the Upper East Side, and Midtown East. Here’s their website.
