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.
