Over the past year, one of Hawaii's favorite dishes has quickly become the country's hottest food trend: poké bowls. You've probably seen mouth-watering poké bowls on Instagram, and wondered how to get your hands on the iconic Hawaiian fish salad.

Fortunately, you don't have to shell out for a trip to the Aloha state, thanks to the treasure trove of options here in the metroplex. At present, poké hasn't quite taken over the Dallas food scene in the way that it has in other cities, but there are currently plenty of options for a killer bowl of poké, and several more will open their doors in the coming months.

Put simply, it's a good time to be a poké fan in Dallas. Whether you're new to this dish or a seasoned pro, these 16 establishments are serving up the best raw fish bowls in town.

As one half of this Deep Ellum spot's name, poke bowls reign at Bowls & Tacos. The Texas inspired poke, a bowl of Gulf shrimp and salmon topped with nopales, cotija cheese, arbol salsa, and guacamole, is one of Dallas' more interesting poke options.

FreshFin Poke Co.

Lower Greenville's only poke shop also happens to be one of Dallas' best. In addition to usual poke standbys, a variety of fancy toppings (like black sesame emulsion and aji amarillo-infused ponzu) elevate this normally casual dish.

Go Fish Poke

Copy Link
With 10 different protein options and super-fresh toppings, Go Fish Poke is a sleeper hit for one of the city's best casual poke shops. If a big bowl of rice sounds too carb-y for lunch, go for the salad or a crispy rice cracker that adds a lot of textural crunch.

Hoki Poki

This Richardson poke shop uses local produce on the toppings bar, and serves up a solid menu of pre-assembled poke bowls. Try the poke burrito, which is essentially a giant sushi roll, or if you're not feeling fish, top your rice with braised pork rib.

Pok The Raw Bar

Copy Link
This Uptown poke bar offers a slightly different experience than many "Chipotle-style" shops. Here, you choose your base (try the bamboo rice), proteins, and toppings, then take a seat on the patio outside and wait for your perfectly-assembled bowl to be delivered. Also on offer are hot and iced matcha drinks, like a refreshing blend of the uber-trendy tea and yuzu lemonade.

Poke Bop

A poke shop for the millennial generation, this Lemmon Ave counter service spot has its very own selfie station. Aside from the photo opportunities, the bowls are customizable, and poke doughnuts (aka circular sushi rolls) are also on offer.
