About Ed Cabigao
Ed Cabigao, co-owner, and operating partner – with his wife, Brittany Whisenant Cabigao – of both South of Beale (SOB) and the new Zaka Bowl. After a few years of dishes like duck fried rice and pulled rabbit risotto, Ed decided to change his lifestyle. He started in 2014 by switching to a vegan lifestyle, which he considers both a healthy and compassionate diet. SOB still maintains a very omnivorous menu. But the Cabigao’s set out to try an ambitious second idea. A more casual space than their original venture, at Zaka Bowl he built a hearty vegan, gluten-free bowl of goodness and topped it with one of six house-made sauces.
