Last summer you couldn’t find a poke (pronounced po-kay) bowl in Dallas if you tried. In fact, maybe you weren’t quite sure what the heck it even was. This year, the delicious raw fish dish—kinda like deconstructed sushi—is popping up in restaurants everywhere. Here are the five best places to get it.

FreshFin Poke

FreshFin Poké Co.

Let’s be real: Any food trend worth its weight in avocado toast is obviously going to pop up on Greenville Avenue. And would it even be a true East Dallas establishment without a vegan option?

3611A Greenville Ave.; 214-730-0576 or freshfinpokeco.com

Po k The Raw Bar

Pōk The Raw Bar

At this buzzy West Village spot, you pick your base, proteins and toppings and then take a seat on the patio to wait for it to be ready (best of both dining worlds). And psst, matcha lovers: The iced matcha with macadamia milk will change your life.

3699 McKinney Ave., #306; 214-484-1139 or poktherawbar.com

Poke Bop

Selfie station? Check. Poke doughnuts? Check. Need we say more? Nope.

4103 Lemmon Ave.; 214-521-7653 or ilovepokebop.com

Go Fish Poke

Go Fish Poke

It’s your typical toppings and proteins, but we are obsessed with their sauces (like the sweet chile gochu, OMG). They also have a killer Hawaiian craft beer selection. Almost as good as actually sitting on the beach in Maui. Almost.

6030 Luther Lane, #110; 214-792-9517 or gofishpoketexas.com

Malibu Poke

When the owner of the beloved TJ’s Seafood is behind a new poké place in Turtle Creek Village, you know it’s gonna be good. So even though this spot won’t be open until fall, we figured you’d want it on your radar.
