Mediterranean bowl: the super healthy recipe with buffalo mozzarella

Red rice, prawns and mozzarella for a perfect single dish in every season and 100% made in Italy. Much better than a poke

The bowls, literally "bowls", are the current trend and are the creative version of the Hawaiian poke. Instead of rice and raw fish, you can use your favorite and not necessarily exotic ingredients, the important thing is to build a complete and balanced dish. At Le Biciclette Art Bar & Bistrot in Milan, Italian cuisine is interpreted with contemporary taste, meeting lunch, brunch, aperitif and going into the night. New in paper, the bowls Italian and hamburgers, but in the Milanese version, like the Burger de Milan.
