Hawaiian Poke Bowl

Hawaiian Poke is the newest addition to the London ‘street food’ food culture. It ticks all the boxes for healthy, nutritious, quick and instantly instagrammable. Poke is a Hawaiian traditional native dish served in a bowl, made with hot white rice topped with raw fish, but is easily adapted to plant-based. We've made ours with raw baby spinach topped with cooked rice, roasted squash, beetroot and green beans. It's finished with char-grilled pineapple and spring onions, sticky pecans and pineapple yuzu salsa.
