Poke Poke unrolls in the Village

The village introduced a new franchise to the town this past week, Poke Poke. This sushi based restaurant takes a modern turn on sushi unrolling it into bowls. With options from a California Roll bowl to a Teriyaki Chicken bowl for those who aren’t a fan of fish. With these delicious bowls, you can refresh yourself with boba tea. Tower reviewed two drinks and two different bowls.

Walking in, the ambiance and environment was amazing. The light-up sign and green walls created a nice feel and it had many seating options. Located in the village, it is the perfect place to stop by and grab a drink or bowl. The workers were very quick and friendly as well.

Starting off with one of their most popular bowls, we got the California Bowl. With a base of shrimp, it was like a sushi roll in a bowl, it also contained crab, avocado, tempura flakes, cucumber, other greens and a spicy mayo that suited it very well. Overall, this is my favorite bowl out of the two. the modern twist on sushi being served in a bowl. The shrimp was very fresh and the avocado and crab added amazing flavor to the dish. With the light, but amazing spicy mayo, it pulled the whole bowl together.

The second bowl we chose to get was the chicken teriyaki bowl. This bowl was phenomenal. The sweetness of the pineapple it had in it and the grilled chicken with crispy onions was spectacular. All the flavors paired perfectly and it’s safe to say I’ll be making my way back here. So for those who like more protein in their bowl, this is the bowl for you. While there was quite a bit of rice loaded into each bowl, the flavors made up for it. One thing I wish for was that it would be more proportional between the ingredients and the rice.

For those who like to make their own creations, Poke Poke has the option for you. With their many ingredients and options of protein or fish, they had many options to fulfill your needs. Everything was freshly chopped up as well. They also had customizable drinks like boba tea, which we tried.

The first boba tea we tried was a lemon lemonade strawberry boba, while it was very sweet, that was expected. It was very refreshing and worth the money. Bowls were on the less expensive side. So it was overall very worth it. We got another boba tea which was a strawberry lemonade peach boba. This one was our favorite, we really liked the flavors and the experience overall was very fun to create our own concoctions of bowls and drinks.
