Healthy Eating at Poke & Co

Açaí bowl in Dubai

We had the pleasure of visiting a homegrown healthy concept recently and we are completely awed by it. Yes, we are talking about the popular and well-regarded Poke & Co that offers sustainable, fresh and high quality ingredients in everything they serve.

Poke & Co has quite a few outlets in Dubai and we visited their Central Park Towers branch located in the business hub of DIFC.

The cafe has a bright, laidback and relaxed atmosphere. It has a look and a feel of a contemporary urban cafe with industrial-inspired minimalistic decor. Loved the potted plants hanging from the ceiling.

The concept according to the team Poke & Co:

Our aim is to make sustainable healthy food accessible. We source the absolute freshest ingredients and prepare everything in-house to provide the highest quality and most flavorful food. We take pride in producing food and drinks that maximize real nutritional value. Whether you’re looking for a gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian or vegan alternative here at Poke & Co we have something for everyone.

We started off with drinks first, they serve both cold and hot beverages. From their cold-pressed juices section, we had the refreshing Charcoal Lemonade and nutritious Sweet Kale. Poke & Co cold-press their juices on a daily basis and it is 100% organic, raw and non-pasteurized.

From their grab and go section, we grabbed a box of Spicy Edamame. The steamed edamame was sprinkled with their special spicy sauce. Absolutely liked their oh-so-spicy edamame.

Next we had Avocado Toast made with multi-seed whole grain bread and topped with smashed avocado, mushrooms, goat cheese, cherry tomatoes and dill. It was wholesome, healthy and delicious.

For the poke bowl, we had the option to build our own bowl or to order from their signature poke bowls. We decided to order one of their signature bowl- Lanai. It is vegan and had zucchini noodles base with matcha miso sauce, tofu, mushrooms, spring onions, radish, edamame, seaweed salad, avocado, pineapple, coriander, wasabi powder and chili flakes. Lanai is the best poke bowl I’ve ever had and It was fantastic.

Poke & Co has great options for smoothie bowls and we ordered the Açaí Bowl. It had wild harvested açaí blended with fresh strawberries and bananas. The colorful bowl was topped with granola, chia seeds and seasonal fruits. Their açaí bowl was good, but wish it had more granola and bananas.

Vegan cake

Dessert was the utterly delicious and indulgent Vegan Salted Caramel Cheesecake. Ended the meal with a cup of freshly brewed Cappuccino.

What a healthy, nutritious and delicious meal it was at Poke & Co. Now I know where to go or order when I want to eat healthy, fresh and tasty food.
