Say HI to the Poke bowls!
If you haven’t noticed, the poke bowls have become super popular in recent years and for very good reason ~ It’s healthy, delish, colorful and it offers many flavor combinations you’ll love!
Pronounced “Poh-keh” and not poki, this is a native Hawaiian dish which means "to slice" or "cut crosswise into pieces. Basically: It’s sticky rice topped with marinated raw fish, avocado, sea salt, sesame seeds, and seaweed.
Originally the predominant poke fish was ahi tuna however, these days salmon seems to be the most popular. These days it’s also served with different veggies and fruit considered inauthentic by Hawaiians such as pineapple and cucumber. Sauces and extra toppings such as fish eggs are also available.
I love poke bowls! Luckily Amsterdam has many yummy places for you to check out!
