Miso bowls are beautifully-decorated Asian pieces made to hold traditional miso soup. Miso, a simple stock soup made with miso paste and a few solid ingredients, has made its way into western culture as a savory dish with unique and interesting flavors. Since miso soup is served in virtually every Asian restaurant, it is important to have the correct serveware. When not used for miso, these plastic and wooden bowls can be used for rice, other soups, edamame and more.
Most miso bowls are made from melamine, a high-quality plastic with a bright finish and break-resistant composition. These bowls are great since they last longer than ceramic models and are easy to store and wash. They are also a great option for soups since guests can easily pick them up and sip from them without worrying about a heavy bowl or a thick rim. These bowls are intricately decorated with authentic Asian designs, bringing a bright and memorable atmosphere to your establishment.
Many bowls come with lids, allowing you to keep soups and other foods warm at the table or behind the scenes before service. These lids are fixed with a base so that they can be flipped over to act as a separate, smaller bowl. This small portion allows discarded items to be placed such as edamame pods, or provides a sauce dish for accompanying condiments. The lids match their corresponding bowls and flip right back on when it is time for cleanup, thereby making your service more efficient and waiter-friendly.
