We don't know if you've ever tried a poke bowl in your life, but if you haven't yet, then today's the day that we hope we can finally convince you that you should. In case you're not familiar with what a poke bowl is, it's a "Hawaiian dish of sliced raw fish, usually ahi tuna, marinated in soy sauce and sesame oil, served over soft rice, and topped with seaweed and Hawaiian kukui nuts." Honestly, we think it deserves a spot on your list of go-to comfort food. Seafood, rice, toppings, and flavorful sauces all in one bowl? Yes, please. Give the cakes, cookies, and chips a break for now and try a poke bowl instead. Here, we round up the places where you can order them in Manila.
