Aloha Poke, the fast-casual chain from Chicago, has opened a second Los Angeles location in Marina del Rey. There’s also a location in the Century City Mall.
Poke is a dish made with raw fish, and Aloha Poke gets its inspiration (and its name) from Hawaii.
Aloha Poke lets you order from a few set poke bowls they’re created, or you can create your own, choosing from their fresh ingredients.
Choose the size you want, the base (white rice, brown rice, greens or grains), and then start adding fish and all the extras you’d like.
I’m partial to sesame oil, and I’ve tried bowls with white rice and brown (both are good) – and even though it’s not traditional, I’m a fan of their Volcano sauce, which combines chili and ponzu mayo.
Aloha Poke is located at 4020 Lincoln Blvd. Suite D, 90292.
