Poke is an increasingly trendy food. For those behind on the times, we’re talking about a raw fish salad that is a staple in Hawaiian cuisine – yum! Joining forces with Japanese influences of sushi, these bowls are sure to be delicious.

The shop works in a pretty simple manner. (1) Pick your based of brown or sushi rice. (2) Plop on a protein – anything from salmon and eel to krab or tofu. (3) Get creative with your mix-ins! Edamame, mango, seaweed, and more can all add some variety into your bowl. (4) Choose a sauce like the Ponzu Citrus, Coconut Cream, or Ginger Wasabi Shoyu. (5) Top it off with peppers, seeds, nuts, or seaweed!
