This colorful and aesthetically appealing bowl ($24) was so delicious and tasted so clean and healthy!

There was a generous slab of thyme-seared wagyu beef atop three types of grain (quinoa, bulgar wheat and pearl barley). The sides included roasted butternut squash and zucchini, blistered cherry tomatoes, carrot and cabbage slaw, sauteed mixed mushroom and furikake baby corn.

The grain mix was the major highlight for me. Just the perfect mix of textures and grain sizes with a beautiful bite. The sauteed mixed mushroom was super flavorful and juicy, the coleslaw not too heavily dressed, and the vegetables roasted to a sweet perfection. The cherry tomatoes were juicy and provided a good contrast to the crunchy raw slaw and the corn. I also loved the nutty flavors imparted by the sesame seeds in the furikake baby corn.

And the beef; so delightfully pink and tender. Not the best beef or the juiciest, but certainly enough to stand its own in this delicious bowl.

I rarely think grain bowls are worth the price tag because how good can a grain bowl get? Thankfully, Populus has showed me a shining example of a simple grain bowl executed well.
