The new sensation of Poke has finally come to Mount Pleasant. As Charleston locals, serving food to our community is a passion, and we know even in our lovely beach community we live pretty fast paced lives and it’s sometimes difficult to eat healthy. At Kahuna Poke Bar, we believe fast food should be healthy and fresh. From our premium ingredients to our exceptional service, eating healthy has never been easier—or more enjoyable.
What’s a POKE Bowl?
Poke (pronounced POKE-AY, not POKE-EE) is served all over Hawaii, and now many cities throughout the mainland. Poke is a raw fish salad, traditionally made with ahi tuna or sashimi grade salmon, tossed with onions and a soy-sesame dressing. In Hawaii, there are many different types of poke made from a variety of seafood (Squid Salad is Popular!) and dressings. Poke shops mainly serve poke bowls, big bowls of rice or other bases like salad topped with a generous scoop of poke and your choice of toppings.
You’ll be happy to know, poke bowls are not only addictively delicious, but also a nutritious way to celebrate the Hawaiian food trend, especially when it’s piled high with nutrient-packed toppings! #betterthansushi #IBowlMyOwnWay
What’s an Acai Bowl?
One of the most delicious members of the superfood squad—a fruit you’ve probably seen all over your social media. Açaí (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) is best known for being the not-so-secret ingredient in picture-perfect frozen bowls, topped with your choice of other healthy ingredients.
Açaí bowls are the latest trend in providing a healthy and even more delicious alternative to frozen yogurt or ice cream. Açaí berries mostly found in Brazil, resemble grapes are actually quite low in sugar, containing close to 0 grams per 100g serving.
