Aloha Poké Co., Chicago’s poké pioneer, is thrilled to dive into Southern California with forthcoming locations in Los Angeles, Costa Mesa, and San Diego.
Aloha Poké Co. has been packing poké bowls since March 2016 when the first location opened within the Chicago French Market. Since then, the concept has grown to have additional locations in Illinois, with aggressive expansion plans within its hometown and nationwide. Earlier this year, the brand announced that it would also be expanding into Denver, Colorado.
Southern California poké fans will soon be able to find Aloha Poké Co. locations in Los Angeles, Marina Del Rey, Costa Mesa, and San Diego:
Westfield Century City
10250 Santa Monica Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90067

Marina Del Ray

“We love being part of larger food halls or markets, which is why this location in Century City appealed to us from the beginning, and we have very savvy partners in Southern California who have helped us scout other great locations,” says co-founder Zach Friedlander. “Los Angeles is actually where we first got the inspiration to bring poké to Chicago, so to be opening multiple West Coast locations is incredibly exciting. It feels very full circle.”
Aloha Poké Co.’s menu offers build-your-own style poké bowls, allowing guests to create a meal as adventurous as they’d prefer. Guests first choose a base of rice or mixed greens, then select from sashimi-grade tuna, salmon, or tofu – all of which can be served marinated or “naked” – and then pack in as many toppings as they’d like. Options include edamame, pineapple, ginger, cucumber, and avocado, amongst other veggies and seasonings. Aloha Poké Co. also offers sauces such as Yuzu Ranch, Spicy Aioli, and Sesame Vinaigrette. Customers may opt to order from three House Creations – Aloha, Crunch, and Volcano – if they’d prefer to leave the choices to the experts.
Aloha Poké Co. opens within Westfield Century City in fall of 2017, with locations in Marina Del Rey, Costa Mesa, and San Diego projected to open in winter of 2018.
