The “Nyjah Bowl” features a flavor-packed combination of grilled chicken with Gochujang sauce, roasted sweet potatoes with grilled red peppers and onions, charred broccoli and wakame, served over cauliflower fried rice and topped with micro greens. The new bowl will be available at all 17 Urban Plates locations across California for $13.

Hustin, who currently lives in Laguna Beach, frequently dines at Urban Plates restaurants and made the first move for the partnership last summer, an Urban Plates spokesperson said.

“I always ate healthy meals growing up thanks to my mom’s cooking,” Hustin said. “That’s what I love about Urban Plates. Eating healthy is a big part of my success and their food is healthy, nutritious and made from scratch.
