Rubio’s® jumps on the bandwagon with their California Bowls

Rubio’s had a lot of changes this year. Bowls are the trendy vehicle for food right now and Rubio’s wants to be part of it. Still holding fast with the sustainable seafood, this practice will help to keep our oceans thriving and also provide its customer with a nice variety of seafood options like Alaskan Pollock, Atlantic salmon, shrimp, and tilapia.

California Bowls consists of citrus rice, black beans, and fresh romaine lettuce topped with handmade guacamole, salsa fresca, chipotle sauce, and your choice of red tomatillo salsa or salsa verde and protein option: pan-seared shrimp, Regal Springs® tilapia (grilled or house blackened), Pacific mahi mahi (grilled or house blackened), or grilled chicken. They improved on the rice since my last visit. It is more flavorful and is a hearty base for the bowl. The grilled chicken is tender and seasoned well. The black beans are wonderful with their earthy, rich flavor. The chipotle sauce is awesome, but I would ask for extra next time. I would also ask for the salsa on the side as I like to add a mix of salsas from the salsa bar along with onions and cilantro. Rating: 4/5

Great bowl option at Rubio’s and can’t wait to see what new items are to come!
