Poked create real food that's fresh, healthy, delicious and fast. They pride them self in using the best Australian produce such as salad from Somerville, salmon delivered daily from sustainable farm and tina from one of the only MSC-certified fisheries in Australia.

They first opened in June 2016, to be the first poke specialise store in Melbourne. Proving that healthy fast food meal can be delicious. Now, they have three store in Melbourne with three more coming and also one existing store in Sydney with one coming. Poked and I agreed on collaboration, free meal and photograph session for me in exchange for review and Instagram post. I was suggested to visit Southern Cross Lane store since it's the best for lighting. I came in on the agreed date and was turn down by the manager on duty. I was sent home, this is the first time it happened to me. She said she was not aware of the agreement, so I went home and contacted the person on social media again. She apologised and ask me to come in again, the other manager of Southern Cross Lane also messages me and apologise. So another date has been set, again I find difficulty at the store by the same manager but managed to get the bowl in the end even though in my heart, I want to leave and never come back. Cause it was pretty humiliating. I take pic of the bowl, tasted it and had another conversation with the person online, who again apologise for my experience at the store.

The Hawaiian - Sashimi salmon and tuna, Hawaiian soy, pineapple salsa, pickled cabbage, edamame, seaweed salad, wonton crisps, roasted sesame.

Meat Lovers - Sous vide chicken and steak, pineapple teriyaki, broccoli and mushroom salad, pickled cabbage, corn, edamame, wonton crisps, and roasted sesame.

Honestly, the bowl were good, well priced and portion. Their regular portions was filled with abundant rice and toppings, shareable between two person. Their small size is actually perfect for me, not too much but filling.
