Poke Bowls to Nourish Your Soul
It's not often that healthy and delicious are used in the same sentence but that's exactly what you are going to find at Kava Bowl. Adding to the Dicky Beach lunch scene, in the southern pocket of the Sunshine Coast, Kava Bowl's Hawaiian-inspired poke bowls are a fresh and welcome alternative to the string of fish and chip shops and bakeries alongside the beach.
Everything about the venue oozes a laidback island vibe and as you walk inside you are greeted first by the cool air-conditioning, and second by the warm hospitality from the owners, a local Samoan family who have called the Sunshine Coast home for over 10 years.
A delicacy in Hawaii and the South Pacific Islands, poke bowls have been a rapidly growing food trend in Australia. Taking influence from Japanese cuisine, the nutritious bowls traditionally combine raw fish with seaweed and rice and are dressed in a zesty marinade containing soy sauce and sesame.
At Kava Bowl, their modern version involves a colourful assortment of fresh vegetables, a base of white rice, brown rice or quinoa, a range of tasty dressings to add a creaminess, zesty spice or citrusy zing and crunchy toppings like fried shallots, sesame seeds, wakame and wasabi peas to top it off.
Raw fish is still a popular selection from the choice of proteins, including raw tuna or salmon, but there is also the option of wood-smoked salmon, roast chicken, or tofu. Make your own bowl by choosing your preferred base, protein, vegetables, dressings and toppings or keep it simple and choose from the menu of preselected combinations. If you really cannot decide, ‘The Maui’ has all 14 vegetables and crunchy toppings that will make your day.
Top off your meal with one of their delicious real fruit ice creams or choose from their range of freshly blended fruit smoothies. Frozen seasonal fruits like mango, banana, or strawberry can be whipped up with vanilla ice cream, frozen yoghurt, or just pure fruit for that guilt-free indulgence.
After your dose of sunshine on the beach, head to Kava Bowl to treat yourself to a lunch that will nourish your soul.
