If you’ve never tried poké or even heard of it—you’re in for a treat. This healthy, fresh fish dish hails from Hawaii, where it’s been popular for decades (you can even find it in local gas stations and surf shops). Since the start of 2017, we’ve seen a 76 percent increase in poké meal deliveries since 2016. Because of this major uptick, ZeroCater added even more poké partners including Island Grinds Catering, Bamboo Asia, Pokeworks, and Hokey Poke.

Now that this dish is gaining popularity on the mainland, we’re here to help you understand what poké is, what it’s usually served with, and how to order it. If you’re into sushi, you’ll find familiar flavors—including raw tuna or salmon—in traditional poké. If raw fish isn’t your thing, you can find variations made of tofu or other cooked proteins. While the simplest version of poké is fish in a cup without any other ingredients, mainland shops are getting creative with burritos, rice bowls, salads, and more. Read on to learn more about this healthy, tasty Hawaiian dish.
