Tuna or salmon?

Poke has become increasingly trendy over the last five years, as the movement has helped spawn an entire new genre of eateries in the United States. And what’s not to love, especially given the fact that poke can serve as a healthy lunch or dinner. The sushi rice at the bottom of a poke bowl is traditionally topped with diced pieces of ahi tuna, but poke lovers can now also find other proteins like salmon, chicken or tofu. This combined with countless vegetables, crunchy topping and sauce options like wasabi aioli or spicy mayonnaise makes it apparent that this Hawaiian dish will likely never get old. Mix and match all the toppings or check out a chef’s signature take on a poke bowl at one of these 11 Charleston establishments.
