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.
