Rice bowls are a big staple of Asian cuisine, and nearly all contain these basic elements: A base consisting of a rice, noodle, vegetable, or grain; toppings such as vegetables, proteins, and/or dairy; a sauce (teriyaki, soy sauce, gochujang, sriracha, mirin); and a garnish (shredded vegetables or chopped herbs, crunchy nuts or seeds, pickled vegetables).
Within that standard base, there are varying flavors, spices, sauces and proteins that go into bowls across separate Asian cultures.
