Burrito Bowls Don't Have Anything on the Latest Trend, the Poke Bowl

Poke Bowl Inspiration

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.
