Bolay is a 100% gluten-free, popular chain restaurant in Florida, that started in South Florida and has been growing exponentially this past year. Some locations already up and running are Gainesville (the one I visited), Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Lake Nona (in southeast Orlando), Palm Beach Gardens, and Pembroke Pines. They also have three new locations opening up, so keep a lookout in your town or on their website!
Since Bolay is 100% gluten-free, you do not have to worry about cross contamination! It’s so nice to not have to ask the servers or chefs what you can or cannot eat due to cross-contamination, you can just order like everyone else.
My favorite part about Bolay (besides the whole 100% gluten-free thing) is the wide variety of options and the fact that every single one I have tried has been amazing! Bolay is like Chipotle in that you pick a size bowl (small or large) and then you get to pick bases, veggies, proteins, add-ons, and a sauce.
Bolay has vegan, vegetarian, meat and dairy options, so everyone can find something they enjoy!
Bolay is located off Clark Butler Boulevard, near Archer Road and I-75 (back behind the Target). Prices are $7.99 for a small bowl (1 base, 2 veggies, 1 protein, 1 add-on, sauce) and $10.99 for a large bowl (2 bases, 2 veggies, 2 proteins, 1 add-on, sauce). They also have ready-made bowls, which range from $7.99 to $14.99.
Pictured here is a small bowl with sweet potato noodles, which came hot, with broccoli and green beans, tofu (the best I’ve ever had), Asian herbs and the carrot ginger sauce.
