Serving Salads, Ramen, Poke bowls and more. Chowa is a Japanese word referring to the quest for a life in harmony and balance. Life is better in balance and harmony. That's why Chowa is the philosophy we follow in everything we do. We source as much of the menu as we can locally in order to ensure that you get the freshest ingredients available and to support our local farmers, fishermen and ranchers. Balanced Bowls, locally sourced, filled with love.
