Sheik Poke Shop Dallas bread Malibu Poke is located at the Seaholm District. The chef centric menu consists of healthy ingredients and utilizes a high tech ordering system. Customers may enjoy chef created poke bowls or create their own with a seemingly limitless of combinations of ingredients! Their house made sauces will delight with smoked bonito aioli, coconut curry, Japanese sancho pepper, red miso, daikon, umami powder, marinated shitake mushrooms, signature sauce and more. I loved that they let you try the sauces before deciding on your ingredients and they also let you order on the side right from the kiosk! While they offer an impressive variety of raw seafood options, they also offer an incredible variety of cooked options, gluten-free and vegan, to include a completely Whole30 compliant bowl. The updated menu now features poke tacos, ramen and miso soup.
