A new, casual eatery offering build-your-own bowls has recently opened on Manhattan Avenue.
Poké Zest, located at 629 Manhattan Ave., features quick Hawaiian and Asian fusion bowls in a small 12-seat locale.
Diners can build their own bowls complete with grains like quinoa and sushi white rice, raw and cooked proteins like tuna, shrimp, and chicken, and vegan options like tofu and portobello mushroom. Toppings include Korean kimchi, avocado, and a variety of finishes and sauces.
The eatery also has their own custom bowls, including Spicy Sashimi Poké, made with sashimi, mango, scallion, and mixed greens, and Hawaiian Ahi Tuna Poké, which has white onions, edamame, crispy wontons, and tuna.
Other items include teriyaki rice bowls and appetizers like crispy rice sushi and tacos. Bowls range from $11 to just under $15.
Poké Zest is cash-only, and opens from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
