It's been an epic summer! Poke-Poke had a fantastic high season thanks to our discerning, taste-proven poke lovers!
Some news, we had a few more mentions later in the summer, AND we are officially looking for Poke-Poke #2, so stay tuned for news of a more somewhat civilized location..with an indoor area..maybe ;)
We got mentioned in a pretty major publication recently, the one and only Huffington Post did a brief write up on our food..we love Ariana, really. Thank you
Poke-Poke: Eat like a surfer -- eat poke. Poke (pronounced "poki"), is a Hawaii-born way of preparing and eating tuna tartare. At Poke-Poke, cubed ahi is marinated to-order with shoyu, seasame oil and seeds, and tossed with green and white onions -- get it with a bed of greens and/or rice (or not). A Veggie Poke is also available, and naturally, it would include kale, plus, avocado, macadamia nuts and brown rice. Poke is typically a take-away meal, something light to eat while poised against your surfboard that’s expertly propped in the sand. But we imagine the brawny fellas at Muscle Beach (just yards away) eat poke too -- but, like, six helpings at a time.

Also, in the spirit of Venice and in Celebration of one of our favorite festivals, the Abbot Kinney fest, we made some hand made, stencil design t-shirts we'll be giving away to poke lovers. Check out the rest of the gallery and find out how to get one on our FB!!!
