DIY Cafe Yumm bowl

My DIY "Jazzy" Yumm bowl: ... My DIY "Jazzy" Yumm bowl: The mix of bright colors adds to its appeal
I was first introduced to Cafe Yumm during PAX West in September (see here). The food was so delicious that I went back the following day for more. It's impractical to travel to Seattle every time I want a Yumm bowl, but luckily the internet has the tasty dressing recipe for me to make my own Yumm bowls at home. You can find the recipe I used at or search Google for other variations. The bowl ingredients are listed on Cafe Yumm's website. It was easy for me to prepare a batch of rice and beans and portion them out for a week's worth of Yumm bowls! The yumm sauce has that "umami" quality that makes it quite addicting.

Jasmine rice, 3/4 cup (45 g raw)
Avocado, 36 g
Sliced black olives, 16 g
Homemade Yumm sauce, 61 g
Salsa, 1/4 cup
Small red beans, 3/4 cup (54 g raw)

Tamago Kake Gohan

Tamago Kake Gohan: Egg, ses... Tamago Kake Gohan: Egg, sesame seeds, and soy sauce (before mixing) Finished rice and garlic-ginge... Finished rice and garlic-ginger salmon
This morning I prepared a simple recipe that I found online called Tamago Kake Gohan or Japanese-Style Rice With Egg. I made garlic-ginger sockeye salmon to go with it for a more complete breakfast. I have a Zojirushi rice cooker so I felt like this dish was mostly authentic!

The sesame seeds and soy sauce added a nice flavor to the egg and rice. I microwaved the sesame seeds until they started popping (10-12 seconds) which really brought out their flavor.

Blue Ginger Korean BBQ

Korean stone rice bowl: A fea... Korean stone rice bowl: A feast for the eyes and stomach!
My boss took me to Blue Ginger Korean BBQ in Bellevue, WA and this bibimbap or stone rice bowl blew me away. I've eaten kimchi for years and I've sampled beef, pork, and chicken bulgogi at a work-catered lunch once, but I've never before visited a Korean restaurant. The dish description is unassuming: "Stone rice bowl with beef, vegetables, and rice." What you get is a true sensory treat with an oversized and hefty stone bowl, rapid steam, patches of fresh color and the sound and smell of sizzling food. On the side is a sweet and spicy miso-soybean paste/sauce that you add before mixing everything together. I appreciated that each bite tasted a little different. The best part was how a little oil in the bottom of the stone dish fried the rice for a crunchy texture and nutty flavor. I cannot wait to go back.

Poached eggs and rice

Gooey goodness Gooey goodness
Looking at the ingredients I have come to realize that this recipe is basically fried rice without the vegetables... but I started out experimenting with rice cooked in chicken broth and added poached eggs for one meal and then expanded to what is pictured above. Add some chopped veggies to make this dish extra nutritious! In the future I will likely leave out the oil or vinegar and lime juice unless I decide to add vegetables. Salt and pepper with the bone broth add enough flavor without the extra seasoning.

My favorite part of this dish is popping the egg and letting its silky yolk run into the rice.
