Created by the Camper shoe company which also opened the Casa Camper hotel next door on Elisabets Street in north El Raval, FoodBALL is a unique two-room eatery that serves rice balls. Seating is on three tiers of broad steps with woven cushions and small lamps along a green wall. Together with the steps, the large windows produce an effect of sitting on a porch and watching people go by. The organic rice balls have a variety of fillings, such as mushrooms, chickpeas, or artichokes, and come with dipping sauces. Soup, snacks, and juice are also sold.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
