Ocean Poke Co. Bowls

There are eight signature bowls at Ocean Poke Co., each one a little different from the rest and designed to tantalize your taste buds. I opted for the Go Hawaiian bowl which included mixed greens, cucumbers, edamame, green onion, plus I added some colorful radishes, shrimp and ahi tuna. All of this was set atop a bed of quinoa and topped with a house ponzu sauce. The bowl was outstanding and I didn’t feel stuffed or weighed down when I was finished. It felt healthy because it was healthy.

My lunch guest made her own personalized bowl with mango, cucumber, ahi tuna, radishes, carrots, guacamole, sesame seeds and cilantro atop a bed of quinoa, and topped with a spicy aioli sauce. The consensus after lunch was that we could eat here every day and never tire of all the healthy options!
