Recently opened at the heart of Melbourne CBD, Pokéd offers trendy Hawaiian rice bowls pack only with the freshest ingredients. Your poke dish can be customised to your liking or you can simply choose from the menu list. Each poke bowl comes with 2 sizes (regular or large) and a choice of white rice or brown rice. So far TwoPaperPen have tried 4 of the poke bowls; The Hawaiian, I Lava Spice, Holy Shrimp! and Surf and Turf.
Poke Bowls for lunch! Yum!

The Hawaiian is packed with chopped up tuna sashimi, cucumber, spring onion and tomato marinated with hawaiian soy and topped with crispy shallots.  For the sides, some fresh edamame and seaweed salad. The overall flavour from the poke bowl was savoury and sweet. The brown rice soaked some of the hawaiian soy which is really tasty and pleasing. 
The Hawaiian
Since Darwin's love spicy food, his favourite poke bowl will be the I Lava Spice. The bowl comes with a generous serving of salmon sashimi, cucumber, tomato, spring onion and sweet onion mixed with spicy mayo. The edamame sides were accompanied with fresh cut jalapeños and chilli with a generous serve of crispy wonton.
I Lava Spice
If you love wasabi, the Holy Shrimp! is a must try. The main for the dish will be sous vide prawns, cucumber, tomato, spring onion and sweet onion mixed with wasabi mayo and topped with tobiko, fried wonton and sesame seeds. For the sides, we have fresh edamame and seaweed salad. 
Holy Shrimp!
For those who are more adventurous, try the Surf and Turf. The main will be sous vide chicken and sous vide prawns with  tomato, cucumber, spring onion, sweet onion and avocado mixed with spicy mayo and topped with crispy shallots. For the sides, fresh edamame and seaweed salad.
Surf and Turf
Overall, we thought that the place is a great alternative for healthy lunch option and definitely worth a visit. Check out Pokéd edgy interior and unique furniture. One thing that stood out will be the unique leaning stools promoting good back posture that also help with digestion.
