Quinoa Power Bowl, Metro Kitchen + Drinkery

Wildly popular in seemingly every other big city, grain bowls remain a rarity in Sacramento. Metro Kitchen + Drinkery’s Power Quinoa Bowl ($11.95) helps fill the local void. The protein-rich grain is paired with chickpeas and seasonal veggies—a recent order included roasted carrots, ruby red beets and pickled cabbage. Dressed in a creamy avocado sauce, it’s topped with pickled red onion and pepitas for a satisfying crunch. It all makes for a Pinterest-worthy meal that’s filling, healthful and visually appealing. 1104 R Street, www.metrojuicecompany.com.
