Have yourselves a healthy meal at Tummy Bowl in Ipoh

It can be a little tough finding a good restaurant that serves healthy diet options here in Ipoh but with the recent launching of Tummy Bowl, the “next generation of sushi” is set to be a hit among foodies and the health-conscious alike.

Located in the Greentown Business Centre on the same stretch as Sushi Mentai, Tummy Bowl is one of the new kids on the block and has quickly become a must-visit spot while in Ipoh.

The restaurant serves up the latest food trend called Poke Bowl – a traditional Hawaiian appetiser consisting mainly of sliced marinated raw fish on a bed of sushi rice, sometimes served with toppings.

It is relatively new in Malaysia, so most Poke Bowl restaurants incorporate flavours that cater more to local taste buds.

This eatery is spacious and clean.
