This place could be called the hidden gem of Upper Greenville.

During lunch time on a week day you won’t find many people inside b.b.bop, without any apparent reason. Despite being open for nearly a year now, the place doesn’t bring in much of a crowd, but it’s definitely worth a visit.

Calling themselves home of the “healthy rice bowl,” this restaurant’s setup is not unlike an Asian fusion version of Chipotle.

Though “signature bowls” are an option, the best way to go is creating your own bowl.

After selecting a regular or large sized bowl, three different rices await your selection. Following is a variety of proteins including beef, pork, chicken, meatball or tofu. Finally, a wide variety of vegetables can be added before the bowl is served fresh or cooked.

The only area in which BBBop deviates from their healthy claims is their sauces. Any way you prepare it, there simply isn’t a low-calorie peanut sauce in existence.

To top it all off, the restaurant offers hibiscus tea limeades and green tea mint lemonade with free refills at a fraction of the price of Starbucks.
