No Sad Desk Lunch For Me -Poke Kitchen 

As a food lover, most of my conversations with colleagues at work revolve around what I will be having for lunch. Yesterday, I had this experience as usual and instead of choosing between my usual options, my friend mentioned the Poke Kitchen. At first, I was skeptical. She described it as a Chipotle style Japanese fusion eatery. I am a huge fan of Japanese food and always intrigued by new things but could you trust a lunch spot with raw fish?



Right when you walk in the doors, there is a cart holding menus that you customize and pass to the employees to assemble your bowl as you choose. There is a choice of white or brown rice, vegetable toppings, choice of proteins, sauces and “crunchies”. I choose brown rice, lettuce, cucumber, edamame, avocado, spicy tuna, salmon, spicy mayo and some various crunchies for the top that I can’t really identify.


All of the ingredients were fresh and I felt very reassured about my raw fish for lunch choice. The avocado and tuna was mixed with soy sauce and I think that is what took this dish over the top.

I took the bowl back to my desk to enjoy and wow, I have found my new go-to lunch spot! The flavors together were incredible and even though I ate every bite, I did not feel stuffed or a food coma like I do sometimes after lunch.

I would highly recommend Poke Kitchen if you are looking for a delicious Midtown lunch. It was not the cheapest lunch I have had but I think you are paying for quality and I can appreciate that!


Yea, I definitely will be returning to this spot!
