The best bowls in La Jolla

The best bowls in La Jolla

We’ve talked about the wonderful handheld experience that is either a wrap or sandwich in a previous article, but let’s give some love to the bowl! Joya Kitchen has a multitude of different bowls to keep you going. Whether you’re trying to get our gains on with our Steak & Grains, or are looking for a lighter companion like our Green Goddess Market Veggie Bowl, we’ve got you covered. For all you carb counters, we even have a Keto Shrimp Curry bowl that is so good, you’ll wonder if it’s staying within your macro budget! When it comes to a La Jolla lunch that exceeds expectations, Joya Kitchen is the destination you’re looking for.

It’s probably best that we just get into it, because we can tell you’re hungry already.

The bowls you’ve been waiting for

With so many options to choose from, you’re going to want to come back and try them all. It all depends on your appetite for the day. Who said lunch can’t be convenient, healthy, and affordable?
