This slick breakfast-lunch spot is another Hawaiian transplant: owner Ken Weller helped establish a Blue Hawaii in Honolulu before opening a San Francisco sister-store in 2010. (Though the mall location is hardly beachy, the surfboard-shaped tables are a nice touch.) The restaurant has gained a following among the downtown desk-set for its acai bowls, poke bowls and all-natural smoothies. The drinks are dairy- and artificial sweetener-free, blended with organic soy milk and apple juice. Highlights include the Lime Drop, a tongue-tingling blend of acai, berries and fresh lime, and the Pink Dragon, which contains dragon fruit and banana.
In the past two years, new poke joints have exploded across the Bay Area, offering a more casual alternative to San Francisco's best sushi and seafood restaurants. Whether you prefer your poke bowl made the traditional way (cubed raw fish, rice and sauce) or loaded with unconventional toppings (hello, potato chips!), here's where to find the best poke bowls in San Francisco.
