The most popular uses for Asian serving bowls are for serving large quantities of rice that will be shared at the table. However, they are also great for serving soups, edamame, fried rice or other Asian dishes that will be passed around and shared among diners. When choosing an Asian serving bowl, look for one that has a pattern or design that will reflect the cuisine you will be serving. For serving Chinese foods or at a Chinese restaurant, look for bowls in one of our Chinese dinnerware collections such as Longevity Dynasty, Garden Dynasty, Peacock, Dragon or Rose. For serving Japanese bowls or at a Japanese or sushi restaurant, look for bowls from the Wei or Lotus collections, or bamboo bowls.
To keep foods like rice or soup warm at the table for longer periods of time, look for an Asian serving bowl with a lid. The lid will not only help contain the heat inside the bowl, but it will also protect the contents from sneezes, germs, dust and other particles. Consider using a rice or soup ladle with your serving bowl as a serving utensil.
