Fast-Casual Poke Loa Lands on Magazine Street

The Hawaiian raw fish salad craze has arrived in Touro


America’s red hot obsession, Hawaiian poke bowls, has finally made its way to the Touro neighborhood of New Orleans. A new fast-casual spot Poke Loa threw open its doors at 3341 Magazine St. over the weekend, Gambit reports.

Taking cues from nationally-acclaimed poke restaurants like Sam Choy’s Poke to the Max, Poke Loa serves up a selection of build-your-own raw fish salads and signature recipes prepared by trained sushi chefs. Patrons can mix and match white and brown rice or salad with a choice of fish or tofu, plus sauces and toppings. Regular sized bowls are priced at $11.50, while a large costs $13.50. The menu is also eventually expected to feature another trendy health food — acai bowls.

Poke Loa is located at 3341 Magazine St. The restaurant is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Website.
