The best food is all about love.
From its origins, to the creative thought process, to the experimentation, to the finished product served to you hot and fresh. Love. Love. Love.
“Bowls to me represent family, love, comfort,” she told The Rafu Shimpo. “I wanted to recreate that and share it with others. I cook with my heart, while adding something new and different that people may not have tried before.”
Uyeda goes off of her feelings, her own personal likes, and her nifty ideas when it comes to creating the menu. Perhaps the most popular bowl, the BOLicious, sums up her innovation. The BOLicious consists of umami fried heirloom rice topped with a crispy poached egg, seared greens, pickled tomatoes, kohlrabi wedges, cucumber scallion relish, and homemade togarashi.
“These dishes are an expression of what I love doing,” Uyeda said. “But with bold flavors so that each bite is a surprise.”
EdiBOL is located at 300 S. Santa Fe Ave. in Los Angeles. It is open from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Free parking is available at the parking lot on Third Street. The restaurant features a large patio space that Uyeda says is open for the use of the community.
