AWESOME THING WE ATE #987 | Harmony In A Bright, Busy Bowl At Ed’s Daily On Powell St.

September 7, 2016.

joeyarmstrong-scout-tacobowl-edsdaily-5171

by Joey Armstrong | The Downtown Eastside’s Ed’s Daily recently made me the best lunch I’d had in a while. I put some of that down to good company (my food-blogger friend Samantha from My Kitchen Love), but mostly it was because it balanced really healthy and fresh ingredients with amazing taste. Ed’s offers lots of quick-service bowls to choose from (with gluten-free & vegan options), or you can mod and/or build your own. I amped up the stock Taco Salad Bowl, adding some roasted chicken for extra protein. The result might be a busy-looking thing with too much going on – loaded with brown rice, pinto beans, kale, beets, corn, daikon radish, hemp hearts, corn tortilla strips, fresh avocado, pico di gallo, and a really tasty cashew cream dressing – but there was brightness and harmony to the diversity of flavours and textures, making the palate work without ever really exhausting it. Ed’s is a bit out of the way on a quick-moving stretch of a one-way street, but it’s a wonderful little midday hideaway. The kitchen knows what they’re doing, even if they allow you to do some of the doing yourself.
