The Poke Me brand is renowned for redefining the traditional Hawaiian Poke bowl, fusing unique Japanese flavours and fresh ingredients to create thousands of delicious combinations.
The Poké Me journey began in 2015 while founders and food lovers Leigh Morgan and Toby Yap were travelling extensively through Asia, North America and Europe, researching the latest in food and beverage health trends.
“The Hawaiian Poké food style jumped out, as it was just starting to boom in LA, New York and San Francisco,” explains Toby. “Besides being a healthy restaurant alternative it had great synergies to popular Japanese food styles, sushi in particular.”
When the boys launched the first Poké Me restaurant in 2016 in South Yarra, their aim was to redefine the traditional Hawaiian Poké bowl through the fusion of a Japanese inspired flavour spectrum across a broad mix of fresh ingredients.
Today, the concept has evolved to become a fully immersive Health Bowl Bar. “We wanted to increase our offering to encompass a large selection of delicious, healthy ingredients that give customers the ability to build an infinite number of wholesome bowls with tasty flavour combinations,” said Leigh.
