Poké Me redefines the original Hawaiian Poké bowl through the fusion of a Japanese inspired flavour spectrum.
Essentially, it’s a delicious deconstructed sushi bowl with a modern twist of Japanese flavour and inspiration. Poké Me is all about maintaining an awesome company culture and having a motivated team dedicated to serving customers to a consistently high standard.
Poké Me started in 2016 as a joint venture by Leigh Morgan and Toby Yap, with its first permanent space in Melbourne. What began with the idea of transforming the traditional Hawaiian poke bowls into a deconstructed sushi bowl (not forgetting their unique Japanese twist), quickly escalated to something more. Everyone was hooked. Poké Me became such a success that the team decided to expand.
Poké Me was introduced to Adelaide in early 2017 and was warmly received by Adelaide’s food critics. The Adelaide franchise is a joint venture with Port Adelaide Power AFL players, Hamish Hartlett and Tom Jonas.
Poké Me now has a national footprint with 3 established sites, two in Melbourne – located in South Yarra and Hawthorn and the other situated in the Adelaide CBD. The Hawthorn zrestaurant is a joint venture with Victorian AFL players Travis Cloke, Tyson Goldsack and Alex Fasolo who were fans of the original South Yarra restaurant and wanted to get involved with their own site.
The South Yarra location is regularly one of Australia’s highest ranked UberEATS partners and the group is recognised as one of the most popular restaurants available on the UberEATS app. Together, the three permanent Poké Me restaurants provide bowlfuls of colour, fresh ingredients and positive vibes to the masses.
This is only the beginning of this prominent brand’s success and growth plans. The group intends to solidify its presence, not only in the major cities such as Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, but also in specific popular suburbs around the country too.
