Bo Bites – Kingo Bowl

(Lyrics – Wham! – Wake Me Up Before You Go Go)

Yelp it up before you Kingo
Don’t leave me salivating like a dingo
Yelp it up before you Kingo
I don’t want to miss it when you try that bowl
Yelp it up before you Kingo
Cause I’m not planning to going solo

Kingo Bowl is a new concept for me and it’s definitely intriguing.

Sous Vide cooked steak and chicken in a rice bowl! Dressed up and served like a poke bowl; a Kingo bowl goes through that same process. The day I attended they ran out of brown rice so I went for their white rice and salad base. For my protein I was told if it’s my first time go for the Gyudon; a marinated shredded beef, which didn’t require me to pick a sauce. For my extra sides I shot for the dried cranberries, fried crispy onions, and an egg.

Overall, I thought I did pretty well for my first run at it. The Gyudon tasted like it had a sukiyaki marinade with a salty and sweetness pop. My crispy onions gave my bowl some needed texture while the cranberries added a subtle gummy chewiness. The egg helped jell everything together making my bowl a hot mess of goodness!

In the end, Kingo Bowl is different and something we all can appreciate and try. It’s the first of it’s kind in the valley and I’m excited to go back for round 2! – Enjoy!
