Rate-A-Restaurant #340: Poke N Roll

Poke and roll

Restaurant: Poke N Roll

Location: 413 S Central Ave. (Glendale)

Type of restaurant: Sushi Bowls

Poke and roll
We stipulated: Lunch time in Glendale and we've been thinking about trying out Poke N Roll for awhile via news coverage and reviews we've seen elsewhere. I love getting Poke back in Hawai'i, and although I knew this wouldn't be the same, I was hoping it might be close.

They stipulated: This is deconstructed sushi, assembled much in the Chipotle style: Pick a rice, 2 fish, 3 toppings (such as jalapeno, seaweed salad, avocado, cucumber, etc.) and a sauce.

What we ordered: Maria and I both chose the tuna and salmon (and crabmeat also comes with it). For sides, I chose seaweed salad, avocado and jalapeno. Maria put asparagus on hers. I also chose spicy sauce and brown rice on the bottom; Maria got white rice and a spicy mayo. It's a hearty meal, for $9.17.

High point:  There's quite a bit of food here, plus I like the variety of sauces available.

Low point:  My brown rice was crunchy. Nothing worse that crunchy rice. But it was still edible.

Overall impression: This is not the Hawaiian-style poke bowl you're hoping for. But move past that, and enjoy it for what it is: Deconstructed sushi. I made mine extra spicy and enjoyed it.

Will we return: Yes.
