One of the newer restaurants in Downtown Naperville is Aloha Poke. Every time I walked by the restaurant on Washington when it was being built, I wondered what Poke (it’s pronounced “POH-keh”) was. Poke means “to slice or cut” in Hawaiian and refers to chunks of raw, marinated fish — usually tuna — which is then tossed over rice and topped with vegetables and umami-packed sauces. It’s a new kind of sushi but easier to eat. I love sushi, so I anticipated that I would love poke, too.

Here is what we choose and what we thought about it:
- Big, white rice, shrimp, crunch - “Delicious, easy to eat, the big was more than I could eat & I’d leave off the spicy mayo next time.”
- Big, white rice, salmon, aloha - “I really enjoyed it, it’s a preferred taste, it’s like sushi but with more vegetables, and it’s really fresh.”
- Big, white rice, shrimp - "The shrimp and rice were good, but I prefer Sushi."
