Founded by two sisters, Chi and Jessica, Bowl'd BBQ is the newest restaurant showcasing their passion for introducing Korean cuisine to the Bay Area

Without a doubt, South Shore Center is the hub of Alameda. With the fervor to be part of the vibrant community lifeline, we wanted to provide a table where we can share not only Korean food, but also our culture.

Alameda South Shore Center today announced the forthcoming opening of Bowl’d BBQ Korean restaurant, planned for early 2016. Operated by Jechi, Inc since 2010, this is the third location to open in the East Bay and the first to open in Alameda.

With the passion for introducing Korean cuisine to the Bay Area, two sisters, Chi and Jessica decided to create a “user-friendly” restaurant format so that their patrons would become more familiar with Korean cuisine. To encourage understanding, Bowl’d came up with simple translations for the original Korean recipes they prepare, which have been in their family for generations.

“Without a doubt, South Shore Center is the hub of Alameda,” says the two sisters about their decision to open in Alameda. “With the fervor to be part of the vibrant community lifeline, we wanted to provide a table where we can share not only Korean food, but also our culture.”

Instead of making barbeque its main focus, Bowl’d specializes in Bibimbop—a traditional Korean rice bowl. Bibimbop consists of 12 different types of vegetables and one may choose the type of rice and type of protein for the bowl.

Bowl’d strives to incorporate everyone’s specific choices, (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free) without disregarding the essence of Korean cuisine. Dishes are prepared in ways that are true to Korean flavor, but made to accommodate eaters of all types.

Bowl’d BBQ Korean restaurant will be located at 2201 S Shore Center in Alameda, California and will be open daily from 11am to 10pm. To learn more, please visit their website: http://www.bowldbbq.com.
