Deal Alert: Get Half-Off Rice Bowls All Over L.A. In April

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

The folks who brought us half-off ramen are now offering a month of half-off rice bowls at numerous L.A. restaurants. We loved Japanese magazine Weekly LALALA's Ramen Week, and DINE50 sounds, dare we say, even better. From April 1-30, pass holders can get half-off deals on Japanese rice bowls known as Donburi.

The bowls come in a variety of styles. There are bowls with fried chicken, tofu, curry, seafood, chasu, veggies, fruit, Korean BBQ and more. At 50 percent off, most bowls will run you about $3-5 when using the DINE50 pass. There are restaurant options all over the area, including NoHo, Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks, Pasadena, downtown, as well as Rowland Heights, Arcadia, Manhattan Beach, Torrance and more.

The pass costs $3.99, so you'll likely need to eat two bowls to get your money's worth. The guidelines vary at each restaurant, so be sure to check the site to make sure you're headed there at the right time to get the deal. Passes can be purchased online here, and will be emailed to you. You can use the pass as many times as you like throughout April.
