Burrito Bowls Don't Have Anything on the Latest Trend, the Poke Bowl
Given the popularity of sashimi, tuna tartare, and ceviche, it's little surprise that poke (pronounced POH-keh), a traditional Hawaiian dish of soy-sauce-marinated raw fish (typically ahi tuna, salmon, or octopus), is taking mainland American by storm. Outside of Hawaii, Los Angeles is the epicenter of this food trend, with a slew of customizable poke bowl spots popping up in the last year. Like Chipotle Mexican Grill, these restaurants typically allow for creating your own personalized bowl made up of a variety of options for both the poke itself (different varieties of fish and/or marinades) as well as bases and garnishes (brown rice, seaweed salad, cucumbers, avocado, kimchi, and salmon roe are all popular). Keep reading for the prettiest examples of this fresh, on-trend option, and if you're feeling so inspired, make this recipe at home.
