Rolls and Bowls is a project that started in early 2014 at 805 4th Avenue, as a small open kitchen with the idea of offering a high-quality product at an affordable price, but with a unique identity, adding traditional ingredients of Mexican cuisine to create non -traditional sushi.
In 2016 new opportunities for expansion were presented, moving us to a new location at 1627 Cesar Chavez Street, better facilities where the original vision of Rolls and Bowls managed to materialize: complement our culinary concept as well as service by surrounding it with art and music, in such a way that all the murals that embellish the walls of Rolls and Bowls are original works of the cachanilla muralist Rod Villa and we have live music on a recurring basis. While in customer service, we established the policy of having a wide variety of promotions available during the week so that our clients can take advantage according to the day, their needs.
After two years of starting operations in this new location, thanks to the support of the community of local artists and musicians, the first Rolls and Bowls event was held, with the participation of local artists and musicians as well as neighboring cities. , laying the foundations for its brother project: Chicano Art Collective. Thanks to those efforts we have been awarded by the south county's best site in 2017, 2018, and 2019 as best sushi restaurant, also 2020 as best sushi restaurant, best restaurant, and the best place for social gatherings.
As a company committed to the community we are always looking for new ways to reciprocate the love and support of our community. As a socially responsible company that goes beyond commerce or services, supporting culture as a fundamental part of our environment and our development, always seeking to grow towards new markets but without forgetting the community to which we owe so much. For all this on behalf of all of us who work at Rolls and Bowls: Thank you very much!
The culinary style of Rolls and Bowls is based on the combination of oriental dishes such as sushi rolls, teriyaki, wontons etc, with traditional ingredients of Mexican cuisine such as avocado, cheese or chipotle, using meat or chicken as alternatives or accompaniments of shrimp and surimi that is traditionally used, experimenting with them to create dishes with their own identity but with the flavor of our roots. With each small change, each variation in our methods, we have been polishing, perfecting our recipes, becoming fast in the execution and careful in the presentation, creating a style and culinary identity that we could simply call: The seasoning of Rolls and bowls.
As we mentioned in our history, in March 2108 Rolls and Bowls held its first event (Noche de cumbias) with the participation of various artists from the region, the works of the prominent muralist from Mexicali Roth Villa were exhibited while in the Musical part we have several artists who have become recurring members of the house such as Cumbia cartel, Dj Chucuchu, Mex Tape or Turbo sonidero. Thanks to the support of the community, this first event became a success and at the same time made clear the need for more similar cultural spaces. A necessity from which the sister project of Rolls and Bowls emerged: Chicano art collective.
Over the years since its formation the Chicano art collective's mission has been to promote culture, music and art, created by locals, for this purpose we have had the support of many people who share this mission and vision. From associations such as: Littlewood fine art and community co op, Arizona community foundation of Yuma or the collective conscience Foundation to authorities such as the Mexican consulate. Of course, we must mention the private initiative that was present through multiple local companies that have supported the creation of Chicano artwalk, an event that is held monthly with new local talents and well-known artists showing new works, as well as crafts and live music.
Thanks to all of the above and after 7 editions of the Chicano artwalk in May 2019, the Chicano art collective received the invitation to organize an event in collaboration with Yuma art center to bring together all these local talents in a single major event, which It became another success thanks to the love and support of the community that once again made itself present.
Although Chicano art collective and Rolls and Bowls are located in different sectors and have different objectives, they are twin projects for the purpose of promoting local culture, each in his own way, but always with the same dream, the dream of a world full of art, music and color, brotherhood and harmony, a dream towards which we walk one step at a time.
