Starting off as a small Chicago train station food stall, Aloha Poke has recently opened their doors to Downtown Naperville. Aloha Poke’s fresh poke bowls are a mix of high quality raw ingredients such as fish and vegetables. They have a mission to provide a healthy meal that fuels your day and makes you rethink the fast food industry.

I recently visited the new establishment and was completely mind-blown by the overall appearance both inside and out. The tropical sensation and the Hawaiian-inspired decorations have created a beautiful atmosphere that is perfect for enjoying seafood bowls.

The employees working at the restaurant were super helpful when it came to new customers. They highly recommended a house bowl for first timers as it is considered their most popular meal.

The price of each meal was determined by the size of each bowl: The Little Bowl for $7.50, the Big Bowl for $9.50 and the Kahuna Bowl for $14.50.

Using only fresh ingredients and fresh fish, Aloha offers three different house bowls: Aloha, crunch and volcano and also comes with the choice of creating your own poke bowl. You are given a large variety of ingredients and sauces to spice up your meal.

Although this restaurant can get a little pricey, the end result of your favorite combination is priceless. I was recommended by the Aloha staff to get their famous crunch bowl with spicy aioli. Containing jalapenos, cucumber, scallions, edamame, tobiko and a bread crumb topping, the crunch bowl was no doubt a safe choice.

Although I am not a big fan of spices, the bowl was delicious and a great representation of Hawaiian-styled dishes.

Aloha Poke has enhanced Naperville’s diversity in their collection of strip-mall restaurants. Aloha Poke gives a spin on sushi and serves a diverse, yet authentic taste of Hawaiian food.
