Opening alert: Poki Bowl in Palo Alto

Uploaded: Aug 26, 2016
Palo Alto's California Avenue area is getting its own poké eatery with the opening of Poki Bowl this Saturday, Aug. 27.

Poki Bowl will be holding a grand opening at 2305 El Camino Real, Suite B from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Free shirts for the first 100 customers.)

At Poki Bowl, customers can create their own bowls from a range of poké, sauces and toppings. Check out the menu here.

For dessert, the fast-casual restaurant has macaron ice cream sandwiches from San Jose's Mavens Creamery. (Poki Bowl first started in San Jose, and has two locations there.)

Owner Nick Nguyen said Poki Bowl will likely be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. "after we iron out all the kinks."

Poki Bowl is Palo Alto's second dedicated-poké establishment, following pokéLOVE at Town & Country Village. Another San Jose eatery spinning off the Hawaiian seafood staple, Go Fish Poke Bar, is also set to open this fall at Stanford Shopping Center.

There are also two poké spots nearby in downtown Mountain View: Poké Bar, and the recently opened Pokéworks.

Curious that the menu does not have prices. Are the prices different at their Palo Alto restaurant compared to their San Jose restaurants? I am disappointed by many of the local poke restaurants because the prices are high for the amount of fish you get. Poki Bowl had reasonable prices in San Jose. Hope they do not change that in Palo Alto.
