Bonsai Bowl is a Japanese-inspired food trailer in Austin.

We feature delicious rice bowls using only fresh, high-quality ingredients. We prepare each one to order. 

From the perfectly steamed sushi-grade rice, local meats, fresh seafood, savory sauces, and crisp produce, we hope you will taste our love for what we do in each and every bite! 

We also offer delicious house-made specialties such as crispy rice balls, pickles, and karaage wings (Japanese-style fried chicken wings).

Many of our dishes are created with Sake Kasu which imparts a delicious umami-rich fermented flavor to our menu offerings. Sake Kasu is part of the sake brewing process and is provided to us exclusively by our friends at Texas Saké.

Itadakimasu! — that means Bon Appetit!
