Dominic the Food Reviewer: Aloha Poke

This weekend I went to Aloha Poké, a Hawaiian motivated cafe at 220 E. Buffalo St. in the Historic 3rd Ward. They also have two other areas in Wisconsin which include a place in the Wauwatosa Village and at the Mequon Community Current market. &#13

“Poké” signifies diced raw fish. It very first originated in Hawaii in the 1970’s and begun with Japanese fisherman. Aloha Poké serves a menu of healthful modern day poké bowls with both equally raw and cooked, vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten totally free and pescatarian proteins to select from.&#13

I experienced the honor to meet up with a single of the co-owners Brian Wang. He owns the restaurant with his brother Tom. They opened their very first cafe 4 many years back in the 3rd Ward. They wished to convey more healthy Hawaiian inspired food stuff to the spot. Poké is incredibly preferred in Hawaii, Japan, Chile, Vietnam and Thailand.&#13
