Welcome to Bowl 91
Yee Lee, a local entrepreneur who has lived in the Fox Cities for more than 25 years, dreamed of an original restaurant that would amp up the city’s fine cuisine: Bowl 91. Taking on new twists in cross-cultural fine dining, Bowl 91 focuses on bringing people together as they share their lives over meals that are innovative, experimental, and tasty.
The story of Bowl 91 began long before its opening on College Avenue. Yee was only four years old when she and her family arrived to the United States in 1991 as refugees. As one of six children in a large family, Yee quickly became her mother’s assistant chef. Working hard to ensure that food was always on the table, Yee’s mother passed on a rich knowledge of traditions, spices, and recipes now infused into each of Bowl 91’s entrees.
Having obtained invaluable skills and values from her mother at a young age, Yee has always been passionate about quality home-cooked meals. As a daughter, she cooked for her parents and siblings; as a mother, she cooks for her four children; as a caring citizen, she now cooks for her community.
Bowl 91 is named in honor of 1991, the year Yee’s family arrived to the United States. 27 years of opportunity, hard work, and commitment to a dream have since manifested into a small but lively restaurant on College Avenue. Here, in a bowl, we invite you to taste that dream… the American Dream.
Bowl 91 features dishes that combine a variety of ingredients and flavors from Asia. We offer a selection of entrees, including ramen, pho, and some of our innovative signature dishes.
