As many of you probably already know, rice bowls are quite popular at our restaurant. Although we don't serve this particular rice bowl, we do sell everything you need but avocados to make it at home. A poke bowl is originally from Hawaii.

The word "poke" means "to cut into pieces", and it refers to the raw fish fillets or cubes served in a bowl with rice, dressing, vegetables, and condiments.
