On a recent troll of Instagram, my eye caught a food pic on another food blogger’s page.
It was a picture of a poke bowl she recently made.

And now that’s poké – as in Beyoncé. Not poke as in pokemon.
Poké.

 

Poké bowls are Hawaiian by cuisine and in her caption she said she was inspired to make her own version of poké after tasting so many different versions in Auckland’s underground food court.

I was inspired to make some too after I double-tapping her version of it on IG, she takes such preeeeetty pictures.

 

So BunnyEatsDesign, this one’s for you my little munchkin sugar face yum yum.
I don’t normally do shoutouts but this shit was terrific ❤

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This silly name calling thing started maybe a year ago….?

I can’t even remember why anymore all I know is she called me cookie face or something in the comments one day and  I was charmed so it took off from there. Sometimes it’s those random vibes with other bloggers that make those foreva eva connections.
Go figure.

  1. Despite my great love of raw fish, I’ve never had poke before…and now I really need to have it. I’m saving this for when it’s hot AF out and I can get some sushi-grade salmon at the market.

    1. Oh Claire it was really really good!
      Sometimes I get in these zones and just look at a bunch of food images and read local menus so I can re-create things later and that’s always risky because you’re going on presentation for the most part.
      But this one is a winner!!

      Happy weekend lady love ❤

  2. Holy shit this looks so beautiful and good and simple and my shellfish allergy wouldn’t be triggered and I wouldn’t even need my husband to cook it for me (he does all our cooking)!!! I’m about this life. I’ll let you know how it goes.

  3. yessss queen.i love me a poké bowl, and i love that it can be made up any which way one’s heart desires. when we were in Charleston last weekend, there was one place we repeated due to their poké bowl selection. i’ve yet to pull the trigger on making one myself, and yours looks delectable. and OCTOPUS? girl. you fancy.

    1. Riiiiight!!?!
      Thanks boo, I really enjoyed making this, it was really easy and kind of allows you to flecx your creative skills which is always a mega plus.
      Some recipes leave no room to error or improvision :p

  4. So tell me why i just ordered a poke bowl from the local joint , having been inspired by your post, and yours looks WAY better! 🤔 I’m coming to Boston. I want a poke bowl. Thanks 😘

Go on, get it out..
