“Enjoy their sushi in a bowl without spending a lot of money.”


12/16/2022 | Love Local, Patient Resources

It’s important to shop local to support small businesses in our hometowns. This is one of the best ways to keep our communities’ small business owners open and to keep our stores thriving.

The local business I’m giving a shoutout for this month is J-Petal, a Japanese crepe and Thai ice cream restaurant.

Great Prices

I’ve been a customer of J-Petal for three years, and I’m choosing to spotlight them because anyone can enjoy their sushi in a bowl without spending a lot of money.

My favorite thing about this business is that they have delicious poke bowls, and you can sample every kind of poke bowl. Try their spicy poke bowl if you like spicy tuna rolls or salmon.

The staff is very nice and helpful, and the restaurant is spacious with lots of seating.

Unique Ice Cream and Drinks

They also make amazing Thai ice cream and have wonderful bobo teas. I have not had a bad one yet. Their Thai ice cream is rolled, making it look like petals, and some are served with a macaron on top.

Kids love their lightbulb drinks that are served in a lightbulb-shaped cup. Try Thai tea with lychee or mango pina colada.

Gluten-Free Crepes

Crepes are both sweet and savory, and they are gluten free, as they are made with rice flour. Fill your savory crepe with steak or shrimp and any number of add-ons.
