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!

All My Exes Live in Texas – A visit to Dallas

Before I visited Dallas in April and May of 2016, I didn’t really understand just how big the city it is. The first thing to understand about visiting Dallas and understanding the magnitude of it is the “Metroplex” which is fancy term to describe the combination of Dallas-Fort Worth area.

During my past two visits, I have spent most of my time in the Uptown area and had a chance to visit Downtown and the Bishops Arts district. If you are interested in learning more about the other neighborhoods of Dallas before I have a chance to visit and report back, visit
