Poke Bowl

Hawaiian Poke Bowl Bar

The Hawaiian word poke (Poh-keh) means 'to slice'. Poke started off as a quick snack of fresh fish fillet bites mixed with salt, seaweed, and crushed nuts. The influence of immigrants developed a wide variety of poke bowls. Japanese style bowls became the most popular across the world, in addition to many non-fish versions.
