On this perfectly sunny day in Los Angeles, I was treated to the best healthiest lunch in town. Poke 2 Go is a food truck, with all of the food trucks this one offers some seriously fresh tuna in the form of a Los Angeles obsession, Poke. There are so many brick and mortar shops opening up daily offering this great old Hawaiian tradition. Poke 2 Go sets the tone for the freshest poke in town.
The truck is only on the West Side, In Playa Vista and in Venice. It is kind of hard to find but worth every second of searching. You can also check out their location on facebook:
Poke 2 Go was created by LA chef Jeremy Ryan and designed to bring high style, high quality restaurant meals without compromising value and taste.
Here’s what I tried:
Spicy Poke – Raw Ahi Tuna, OG recipe plus spicy mayo and Sriracha®.
Wasabi Poke – Raw Ahi Tuna, dash of wasabi, “The OG” recipe, plus black sesame seeds.
Aloha Poke – Sweet, Island flavor, Raw Ahi Tuna, Aloha soy sauce, sesame oil, white sesame seeds, seasoned rice vinegar, sea salt, and crushed red pepper.
Original Poke – “The OG”, Raw Ahi Tuna, Yamasa soy sauce, sesame oil, & white sesame seeds.
Kale Salad – Kale Salad – A healthy alternative Kale, brown rice, avocado, chopped carrots, white onions, macadamia nuts, Yamasa soy sauce, sesame oil, and white sesame seeds. The Kale salad is huge and offers an alternative for a vegetarian, and it is delicious.
Add Ons & Sauces: Avocado, Kale, Carrots, Seaweed, Pickled Ginger, Jalapenos, Macadamia Nuts, Sriracha®, Wasabi, Crushed Red Pepper, Chili oil, Chili flakes, Spicy Mayo, Masago (fish eggs).
Each poke has it’s own individual style, and you can add the toppings of your choice. The real deal here is the very fresh, large chunks of Ahi Tuna that has on top of each bowl, they really don’t scrimp, lots of luscious tuna. My favorite is the Aloha Poke with a drop of sweetness, from the rice vinegar, for me really makes all the difference.
Not more to say other then when you in the mood for really terrific Poke’ that stands alone in flavor, ingredients, and has the freshest Ahi Tuna then check out the Poke 2 Go food truck.
