Build Your Own Poke Bowls Catering

Poke has been made in Hawaii for centuries. Fishermen would cut their daily catches into cubes and serve it raw over whatever other ingredients they had on hand. Over the years, the dish has evolved to include complex marinades of soy sauce, ginger and other seasonings, often served with seaweed and candlenuts. Poke bowls are the more modern iteration of ancient Hawaiian poke featuring fish served over a bed of rice with other ingredients such as avocado, pineapple, cucumbers, jalapeños and more grouped together on top of the base. The result is a dish that is just as satisfying to the eyes as it is to the tastebuds and the variety of ingredients allows for a range of flavors from spicy, sweet, salty and everything in between! Build-your-own poke bowl catering can be a fun way to spend an office lunch hour as each of your team members can build a meal that perfectly fits their dietary needs!

How much should I order?

How much should I order?

We recommend ordering for more people than your headcount for any buffet-style catering. Those who are standing in the line before you might take more food than their allotment without realizing it. Similarly, you might want to over-order any additional buffet-style sides to be safe. The idea of a “full portion” can be different from person to person.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does "poke" mean?

...more Despite the similarity in pronunciation, "poke" has nothing to do with Nintendo's famous yellow electric mouse (Pokemon in case anyone missed that reference!). Poke is Hawaiian for "to slice" or "cut crosswise into pieces."

Are there vegan and vegetarian options for Build Your Own Poke Bowls?

...more Yes! Any poke bowls can be made with tofu or a mix of vegetables in place of fish or other animal-based proteins. Look for the (V) and (VG) indicators next to each option to know if your selection is vegetarian or vegan.

Can I make my order gluten-free?

...more Yes, but many of the proteins are not gluten-free as they are marinated in soy sauce. Soy sauce is wheat-based, unless the restaurant uses gluten-free soy sauce. Look for the (GF) indicator next to a dish to know if it is gluten-free.

What goes well with Build Your Own Poke Bowls?

...more Popular sides for Build Your Own Poke Bowls include edamame and crab salad.
