If you can’t come early, don’t worry, even what’s left is fantastic. We had the curry chicken, spicy poke, pulled pork and glass noodle chicken. All tasted wonderful! Try the cookies if you crave something sweet to finish up with.

Lots of different variety of poke and other combos but we like poke. So we had poke bowls and were not disappointed. It is a take out but has a couple of tables outside with chairs.

Stopped in for a bowl of Poke and was thankful! Ordered three bowls (2 scoops) and a drink. Out the door for about $20. Poke was outstanding--very fresh! Not a sit down, so have a plan. Ours is to come back repeatedly!

If their poke is no good for you then I don't know what you put in your mouth! Ah, also they have pretty good adobo too if you like philipino food! Oh, they don't have much seating area so be aware..
