The first two feed five and includetwo grilled proteins (lemongrass pork, kaffir lime chicken, or turmeric tofu) and various toppings, including Vietnamese herbs, veggies, sauce, and a fried egg for the former and chopped peanuts for the latter. It runs $60. Thebánh mì & goi ga box includes the famous Vietnamese sandwich with the same protein options and the Good Bowl’s unique take on chicken salad.It’s $100 and serves 8 to 10 hungry beach or boat babes.328 E Front St., Traverse City.
