Poke fans, take heed: there's a new spot in town to get your fix. Located at 207 N. Peters St. in the French Quarter, the fresh addition is called Poke Poke. Offering customizable poke bowls, customers can make their meal their own way at this new joint.
Start by choosing a base (rice, quinoa or mixed baby greens) and add in some protein (tuna, salmon, spicy tuna and more) before finishing it off with toppings (jalapeño, scallion, corn, cilantro, etc.), sauce (wasabi aioli, sesame vinaigrette, house eel sauce, etc.) and texture (garlic, onion, sesame seeds or macadamia nuts). Check out the menu here.
With a 4.5-star rating out of four reviews on Yelp so far, Poke Poke is on its way to developing a local fan base.
Pete B., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Feb. 16, wrote, "Once again, as a poke pro, I'm going to go ahead and say this place slays it. It's a little bit on the spendy end, but it's worth every penny."
And Robyn T. wrote, "Highly recommended. First time order and the food was fresh, exactly as I ordered and delicious."
Head on over to check it out: Poke Poke is open from 11 a.m.–9 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.–10 p.m. on Friday, noon–10 p.m. on Saturday, and noon–8 p.m. on Sunday.
