Here's another story for you: my first time trying a Yumm! Bowl. I heard about this Oregon-based restaurant franchise at work. At first, I wasn't interested because I didn't like the sound of a rice bowl with vegetables (so narrow minded, I know). For my boss's birthday, though, we had a Yumm! Bowl potluck, and that's when I turned a corner. I tried the Yumm! Sauce and I was not sure that I liked it at first. After eating a whole bowl, though, I was hooked. The sauce had a repugnant deliciousness. Now I eat there almost every week. So far I'm only into bowls, but my next foray will be into the world of wraps- more about their menu later.
First, let's talk about the atmosphere. My home restaurant is located in Lake Oswego, it's quiet, clean, and a perfect place to relax during lunchtime. The aesthetic is slightly ethnic, but there's no specific country I can point to as the main inspiration. It's a nice place, and I appreciate their efforts to be environmental. They use many recycled materials, and their bowls, utensils, and water cups and reusable.
My second favorite bowl is the Chilean Zucchini (pictured above). It includes brown rice, Yumm! Sauce, Deluxe Toppings, and, the most divine part, zucchini-corn-tomato stew. This one requires a spoon, but it's so hearty, refreshing, and filling. The way it fills me up is good without the guilt. Whenever I eat greasy food like a pizza or burger for lunch, I always feel gross afterward and the rest of the day I'm sluggish. With a Yumm! bowl, though, I'm recharged and not slowed down. It's really a perfect lunch with a glass of ice water.

What is in the Yumm! sauce you ask? It a mysterious combination of nuts and nutritional yeast. It's a secret recipe that many have tried to replicate but no one has has perfected.
