Vegetarians take note: There's a new restaurant in town.
South of Beale owner Ed Cabigao recently experienced a transformation, and he wants to extend it to his community. First for ethical reasons, which then turned into health-related incentives, Cabigao became a vegetarian and later, vegan.
His passion for this lifestyle and the impact he would like to have on the world caused him to consider opening a vegetarian restaurant, and a trip to D.C., where he discovered a successful build-your-own bowl-style restaurant sealed the deal for him.
Cabigao and his wife will open Zaka Bowl in late July/early August at 575 Erin Drive, with the concept of using locally produced food to create build-your-own veggie bowls with ingredients such as quinoa or wild rice, tofu or meaty vegetables. banished such as roasted corn or apple slaw, and a choice of house made sauces.
Cabigao is working with Loaded for Bear for his branding and design. The 1,500-square-foot property is leased by Loeb Properties. He hopes to begin construction June 1st.
