With a sparse decor and equally pared-down menu, you'd think Zaka Bowl wouldn't garner a big following. But the East Memphis eatery, owned by the folks who brought us downtown's South of Beale, has garnered a loyal following of healht-conscious fans. The menu is indeed simple: Start with a choice of Jasmine brown rice, quinoa, noodles or chopped spinach, top with what's referred to as H.I.P. or High in Protein veggies / tofu, then load up on hot and cold garnishes, everything from roasted chickpeas to rosemary carrots, cinnamon chili sweet potatoes, pineapple pico and jicama slaw. A kid-sized bowl is also available, although this isn't a place for kids who don't eat their veggies. Drinks, natch, are on the healthy side too, with choices from Spindrift Soda to Boxed Water and various teas and coffees.
