Two couples whose families have been personally affected by food allergies are opening a new Vitality Bowls “superfood” restaurant in South San Jose.
Brian and Kathy Hom, the San Jose parents who became EpiPen crusaders after their son B.J. died of a peanut allergy reaction while vacationing in Mexico, have joined forces with founders Tara and Roy Gilad to open their second Vitality Bowls. The Gilads, whose daughter suffers from food allergies, first launched the enterprise in San Ramon in 2011.The new Vitality Bowls will open Thursday, Nov. 30, in the Almaden Ranch center. This will be the second for South San Jose; a Village Oaks Plaza location on Cottle Road opened in March.
Besides offering antioxidant-rich acai bowls and other health-based fare, the Homs and Gilads hope to provide a safe haven for diners with allergies.
The menu features fruit-based bowls (the Warrior Bowl and the Dragon Bowl are among the most popular), smoothies, panini, salads and soup. All are made in non-cross-contamination kitchens, and no artificial preservatives or added sweeteners are used.
The cafe also includes a full-service coffee bar with organic kombucha and cold brew coffee on tap.
Details: The new Vitality Bowls will be open daily at 5110 Cherry Ave. Other locations are in Berkeley, Walnut Creek, Pleasanton, Castro Valley, Cupertino, Danville, Dublin, Lafayette, Pleasant Hill, Newark, Palo Alto, Redwood City and San Jose/Cottle. www.vitalitybowls.com.
