Fieldtrip is a counter-service spot that specializes in rice bowls. This might sound boring, and maybe you even yawned just now, but the food here is tasty, fresh, and just the right amount of healthy. You can get a bowl with brown rice, beef, and turmeric yogurt, for example, or you can get some crispy breaded chicken over long-grain rice with edamame and barbecue sauce. There are also a few sides like some surprisingly decent quinoa bao buns, and everything here costs less than $15.
