Ever try an acaior poke bowlbefore? In case you haven’t, these are a must try for any NFK foodie or anyone looking to add new flavors to their palate! Located on 800 Granby Street you can find Zeke’s Beans & Bowls Norfolk. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Zeke’s has a tasty selection of healthy meals and drinks to choose from including traditional items such as salads, bakery goods, and coffee.
While you are there be sure to try out an acai and/or a poke bowl. Zeke’s is well-known for those two items.
If you are a fan of smoothies an acai bowl would be an excellent choice bursting with berry flavor and crunchy texture!
Equally as tasty are their poke bowls. For anyone who is a sushi-lover or is someone looking to try fresh fish served in a different way, a poke bowl is a way to go. Piled high on top of a fresh-green kale salad is marinated tuna poke with shredded carrots & cucumbers, pickled ginger, avocado, and a dash of sesame seeds… flavor explosion!
Looking for a place to have a great breakfast, lunch or dinner? The Grilled Cheese Bistro is simply the best, order from a wide menu of classic food and beverage options. I recommend trying the “GOOEY”, which is a classic grilled cheese using 3 different types of cheese: Fontina, Cheddar, and Mozzarella. The Grilled Cheese Bistro also has the option available for customers who prefer gluten-free bread and vegan cheese! It is also encouraged at The Grilled Cheese Bistro to start a conversation with someone with communal seating. So make your way down to 345 Granby Street, grab some delicious food, and meet someone new!
