Poke Bowls

We always try to visit new eating places that come to town. The most recent is a place called Poke Bros . It is a franchise so there are other locations in different areas. I was excited to see one open up around here.


I have never had a Poke' Bowl so I was excited to try it.
I guess you wonder what it is. Right?
Well a Poke' Bowl is a Hawaiian Cuisine and basically Sushi in a bowl. If you like Sushi, you will like these. If you do not like Sushi then you still need to try it. What most non Sushi eaters do not understand is that Sushi is not always "raw" fish. I will not eat anything raw, not even cookie dough.

Poke' Bros. was a small "hole in the wall" place, located on the East side of town. The bright glowing sign hung above the entrance.


I could not help but think the sign pointed to the bakery next door.

As we entered, we walked up to the counter and placed our order. You can create your own bowl or pick from one of their signature bowls which is exactly what we did.



I chose from #3. The Hula (shrimp). Again. I stay away from the raw fish and stick with shrimp or crab meat. My bowl was loaded with meat and veggies. They added several sauces and toppings that I could not even pronounce. It was all perfectly layered on a mound of extra sticky, sticky rice.


The staff was super nice and offered us samples of sauces before they applied them to our bowls. They even let Nick sample a few pieces of raw fish that was cut into thick cubes. He liked it but I refused to even try it.

We were satisfied and amazed at how good the food was. We finished off our meal with some delicious Mochi Ice Cream


Mochi is ice cream wrapped in rice dough. They are fun to eat. I talked about them before on another post here.

We plan to visit Poke Bros again and try different varieties each time.

Have you ever tried Poke' Bowls?

  2. I have never heard of a Poke bowl...we don't have this chain here in Texas that I know of. I'm not a sushi eater, but that definitely looks good! The ice cream looks delicious also! Have a great day! Hugs!

  3. It does look good. They are accepting a challenge in the 'Fish Camp' capitol of North Carolina (maybe the world, ha) I think much of the younger generation are READY to try something new like this. I hope they do well. (I know you know, but for those who do not, 'Fish Camps' are 'Seafood restaurants in GAston County' Fried fish a specialty!)

  4. Hi Lisa
    I love sushi, so those Poke Bowls sound good! I thought the same thing when looking at the fish logo! My hubby and I have been trying different places here in Charlotte as well.
