Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

You might not expect much from a Venice poke stand bordering tattoo parlors, yoked muscle beachians and eclectic street performers, but Poke-Poke packs a punch. Score silky fresh ahi marinating in a cocktail of chili oil, shoyu or spicy mayo with crisp white and green onions for a pungent kick ($7 for a small bowl, $11 for a large). Customize your own concoction or order the spicy tuna, wasabi and aloha favorites on a bed of white or brown rice or Hawaiian style (meaning sans rice, more fish, at $9-$14). Unlike the average poke shop, meat-lovers can snag a pan-seared beef poke tossed with soy sauce, sesame seeds, white and green onions, watercress, and tomatoes; if you're not into meat, the ultimate veggie bowl is promising for vegetarians, with tons of crisp veggies on kale salad and brown rice for $10. Take a seat in the small makeshift courtyard for epic people-watching prospects that may be more Instagram worthy than the poke bowl itself.
