What’s in a Poke Bowl? Let’s Break It Down

There’s one question that has foodies clamoring for answers: What’s in a poke bowl? This delicious meal is easy on the palate, packed with protein and vitamins, and is the perfect companion for beachgoers. There’s no question why this is one of our most talked about and asked for menu options.  

At Kaia Bowls, we live for the chance to share authentic Hawaiian cuisine with our Clearwater guests and neighbors. We invite you to join us as we break down what goes into one of our poke bowls in Clearwater. This may be a bit of a spoiler, but you’ll come to find that what goes into a poke bowl depends entirely on you. 

Drop the Base

Generally, the base of a poke bowl consists of white or brown rice, but you can always have a base of greens for a slimmer meal that’s low on carbs. We’re all about giving our customers choices when it comes to fueling up. 

Pump up the Protein  

You may have heard that poke bowls are giving sushi a run for its money, and for good reason. Poke bowls are a more customizable and easier meal to enjoy. Sure, you can get ahi tuna or salmon if you want, but you can always fill up on grilled chicken or shrimp. In a rush? Pick from our four signature poke bowls and leave the rest to us.   

Fuel up on Fillings

Fillings and protein make for a harmonious pairing that’s both nutritious and scrumptious. A lot of other restaurants try to cheat by pilling on the fillings and skimping on the protein, but that’s not our style. At Kaia Bowls, you can fill your poke bowl with four of our seventeen fillings. You can fill up on seaweed salad, almonds, candy beets, and edamame, just to name a few. Our menu can provide you with a full list of our delicious fillings! 

The Chia on Top 

A poke bowl in Clearwater isn’t complete if it doesn’t have that extra something to make your meal pop. There’s nothing like biting down on a mouthful of poke and hearing the satisfying crunch of tempura flakes, chia seeds, crispy beets, or crispy onions. Alternatively, you can keep it green and top off your poke bowl with cilantro and scallions.  

Not-So-Secret Sauce

The last stage in a poke bowl’s journey includes the addition of a delectable sauce of your choice. We offer hot wasabi, sriracha, and jalapeno aioli for the daring. Or maybe sweet soy, teriyaki, and yum yum sauce are more your speed. Kaia Bowls offers ten distinct sauces to help you put the finishing touch on your perfect poke bowl.
