It’s only been open a week, but it is already causing major buzz in the LBC. With a location in Hollywood, and two others to come in Studio City and Eagle Rock, Poké Bar is bringing the Hawaiian Classic further south with their Long Beach location. You get to choose your bowl size, your base (rice, nachos, or salad), your protein (salmon, tuna, spicy tuna, octopus, shrimp, albacore, and tofu, your toppings (crab meat, seaweed salad, cucumber, jalapenos, onions, green onions, pineapple, corn, cilantro, wasabi, ginger, avocado, and more), and your sauce (ponzu, house dressing sauce, spicy mayo, and more)!
I chose the small brown rice with crab meat, seaweed salad, salmon, cucumber, onions, masago, ginger, and ponzu sauce. Everything was very fresh and for the smallest size, the salmon to rice ratio was perfect. I will definitely be going back to try the other combinations. It’s very similar to a lot of other build your own poké bowl places, especially to some of the newer spots in LA and the Westside, but it is a welcome and needed new spot in downtown Long Beach!
