New to 1823 E. Commercial Blvd. in Knoll Ridge is Bowlicious, a do-it-yourself food spot that emphasizes its hormone and antibiotic-free meats as well as the low levels of sodium and sugar in its dishes.

Try the Matador bowl, which consists of quinoa, Spanish cilantro basmati rice, cinnamon-roasted sweet potatoes, glazed mushrooms, Peruvian chicken, barbecue pork, Parmesan cheese, beet salad and spicy three pepper sauce. Choose from other pre-designed bowls or create your own.
