Sushi Bowls

We just love creating these “sushi” bowls. They are really deconstructed California rolls made into Poke Bowls. The topping ideas are endless but I’ll share with you our favorites.

Sushi Bowls

The main difference between poke bowl and sushi is that poke bowl is a Hawaiian dish, and sushi is a Japanese dish. Poke bowl comes in a bowl, but sushi comes in the shape of little rolls. Poke bowl needs many ingredients, whereas sushi is minimal and simple.
