Neighborhood Spotlight: Bowls and Tacos

6.29.17 amontie

This weeks neighborhood spotlight is on Bowls & Tacos. Sam Wynne, owner of Braindead Brewing is taking on his second restaurant venture, and is keeping it within the Deep Ellum family. Located at 3400 Commerce St., Bowls & Tacos will be serving up those foods so appropriately alluded to in its name. Half the menu is made up of tacos, and the other half poke bowl options, all of which were developed by Braindead Brewing chef, David Pena.

While very few Texans are a stranger to the word “tacos”, “poke” might be a new term to some. Poke is a Hawaiian dish that only recently became somewhat of a food-trend here in the Dallas. As D Magazine puts it, it’s “a bowl filled with, basically, deconstructed sushi rolls”. If you haven’t tried poke yet, Bowls & Tacos is sure to be a great place to do so, and if poke isn’t your style, there’s no doubt you’ll fancy a fish taco and a beer on the patio.

According to Central Track:

“The pastor and barbacoa tacos immediately stood out as savory delights on the taco side of things, whereas the poke bowls made for both light and refreshing dining options. To that end, Bowls & Tacos seems immediately primed to become a go-to Deep Ellum lunch destination, with its tacos being affordable at just $2 a pop after taxes, and its poke bowls starting at $12 and serving as a natural replacement for more healthy-conscious eaters looking for options beyond a run-of-the-mill salad.”
