Urban Plates Launches New Selection of $9 Plant-Based Bowls, Now Available at All San Diego Restaurant Locations

Known for its made-from-scratch, affordable meals featuring clean ingredients, the restaurant group debuts vegan, gluten-free, plant-based bowls for just $9

San Diego County CA— Urban Plates launches an all-new line of nutritious, plant-based (100% vegan), and gluten-free bowls at all San Diego County locations (Carlsbad, La Jolla, and Del Mar). Available now for just $9 each, bowls include:

  • Beets + Avocado made with organic red & white quinoa, beets, avocado, walnuts, pickled red onion, dates, hemp seeds, cabbage, coconut, and miso lemongrass dressing
  • Chickpea + Sweet Potato made with chickpeas, organic green lentils, sweet potatoes, red cabbage, goji berries, green peas, kale pesto, and harissa sauce
  • Poblano + Roasted Corn made with organic red lentils, corn, roasted poblanos, red cabbage, celery, tomato pesto, pumpkin seeds, and chipotle lime dressing

Following guest feedback and the availability of seasonal ingredients, Urban Plates plans to launch its plant-based bowl options at locations nationwide in 2020.

“People want to eat flavorful, plant-based foods, but not necessarily the highly processed plant protein options out there today,” says Jim Cannon, Head of Culinary for Urban Plates. “Our new plant-based bowls are just that—delicious, nutritious, and totally processed-food free.”
