Raleigh has a new poké spot: PokéGo. The new fast-casual restaurant that specializes in poké bowls, the Hawaiian exported dish that revolves around diced sushi-grade fish, is located in the Brennan Station shopping center, next to Five Guys and a Sprint store.
PokéGo allows you to customize your own poké bowl. You walk in and select a base (steamed, sushi or brown rice or zucchini noodles or fresh mixed greens) and then select your proteins (ahi tuna, organic tuna, salmon, yellowtail, shrimp or chicken). Bowls are offered with two proteins at $10.50 or three proteins for $13.
The build-your-own poké bowls then can get customized with your choice of mix-ins, drizzled sauces (including PokéGo’s spicy signature sauce), toppings and crunchy add-ons. Those that don’t wish to customize can also select from a variety of signature poké bowls and a selection of noodle dishes that include ramen and yakisoba.
For the price and the quality of the fish, PokéGo is certainly not a cheap meal, though the bowl portion size is fair and is more than enough for lunch. In an area that is devoid of poké options, it should fare well among those that are seeking something different and trendy, as seen by the dish’s recent, explosive national popularity heightened by social media. For hungry poké lovers, it may be a regular “stop” at Raleigh’s new PokéGo.
