You can find Poke Me with their cleverly named menu options and fresh fish in East Austin. I recently met one of the owners who I found to be kind and passionate at what he does. I like their ahi tuna in a waterfall bowl topped with the spicy doggy style marinade.

Owners Trish and Jason opened the first Poké-Poké location in LA back in 2010. They discovered the Hawaiian dish while visiting O\’aha just six months earlier. 6 months later they opened on Venice Beach. And today, they are bringing creative ahi poke to both Los Angeles and Austin! They were one of the first to hit the Austin scene with their bright blue beachy decor and perfectly marinated fish.

Not only is the poke the best I have ever tasted, presentation is beautiful and the owner is both hospitable and funny. I got the ahi poke with sticky rice and a side.

Come check them out at their trailer in 5000 Burnet Food Park.
