Sushi is great. But when you’re starving, it can get expensive. Enter Fremont Bowl, a new casual Japanese spot specializing in donburi bowls (high-quality fish on top of rice). Nothing here is more than $15, and you will absolutely not be hungry afterward, making this a good, if small, spot for a lunch or low-key weeknight dinner. The friendly service is also a plus. Two things you shouldn’t miss here: their smoky homemade soy sauce, and the bowl with seared salmon that cuts like softened butter.
