Poke 305 Restaurant Review

: Family-operated business Poke 305 in Brickell has taken on the trendy salad (served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine) consisting of raw fish sliced and then mixed with seasonings. In a modern twist, the dish has a base (most typically of white rice) with a plethora of fixings. They're mixing healthy poke bowls with everything from salmon, tuna and crab salad (all in one bowl) to whitefish and even chicken for non-fish eaters. There are seven signature bowls to choose from, which have been made with "Miami flavors" in mind (think guava and passion fruit sauce) or you can make your own. The base can be either white or brown rice, quinoa or mixed greens. Sizes include regular ($12.95) or large ($15.95) except the Mao with the salmon, crab salad and tuna which comes only in a large and will set you back $17.95. Don't want your poke in a bowl? You can also get it in a burrito form with a nori wrap. Every poke comes with a soup and there's also sides such spicy edamame, seaweed salad, crab salad or the newest installment of squid salad (a must try). If you're the kind of person that needs every meal to end on a sweet note, an assortment of 10 plus mocha flavors will do just that.
