I’ve had a healthy lunch today at Poke House Spitalfields, East London. Poke House is now Europe’s biggest poke bowl chain with multiple sites across the capital, including Spitalfields, Victoria, Canary Wharf, Bloomberg Arcade, with more to come. It’s a great place to pick up a healthy lunch bowl or takeaway for your dinner, plus a little mochi treat or cookie. Poke House is the House of original Californian poke, combining Californian soul with Hawaiian taste! If you’re looking for healthy places to eat in Spitalfields or takeaway lunch in E1, you should head to Poke House.

Poke House Menu
Poke means slice or chunks in Hawaiian, such as raw tuna chunks. A poke bowl is a traditional Hawaiian dish, usually with rice and diced fish or protein, a few veggies and sauce for flavour. If you haven’t tried one before, it’s best to select one of the House Specials because they have been specially devised to give you a balanced meal that’s full of flavour:
Sunny Salmon: Sushi White Rice, Juicy Salmon, Fresh Avocado, Edamame, Red Cabbage, Special Dressing, Avocado Cream and Sesame Seeds.
Heat Wave: Tricolour Quinoa, Juicy Salmon, Fresh Avocado, Cucumber, Red Onion, Spicy Mayo, Coriander and Sesame Seeds.
Spicy Tuna: Sushi White Rice, Tuna, Goma Wakame, Red Cabbage, Carrot, Cucumber, Spicy Peanut Dressing, Ponzu Dressing, Jalapeño, Crispy Onion, Tobiko and Sesame Seeds.
House Chicken: Sushi White Rice, Teriyaki and Ginger Chicken, Courgette, Cherry Tomatoes, Red Cabbage, Teriyaki Sauce, Spicy Mayo, Spring Onion, Crushed Almonds and Sesame Seeds.
House Vegan: Tricolour Quinoa and Kale, THIS isn’t chicken (Vegan), Carrot, Chickpeas, Fresh Avocado, Teriyaki Dressing, Crushed Almonds and Sesame Seeds.
I tried the House Vegan, which I loved, so it must be good because I don’t usually order anything that tastes like meat or chicken. I’m okay with veggie sausages and plant-based burgers, but I don’t tend to go for pretend chicken. However, it was excellent, and I enjoyed every mouthful. Homeboy loves eating fish, so I choose the Spicy Tuna for him. He was super happy and said the red cabbage was crunchy, the salmon tasted fresh, and he loved the chilli kick. Regular size House Poke Bowls are £8.95-9.95.
You also have the freedom to create a bespoke poke bowl from the long list of ingredients. First, choose your base, add some veggies and protein, spice it with dressing, crisp it with some topping, and you’ve got a custom-made poke bowl.
Now that you’ve been healthy, you are allowed to get a little treat such as the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies or a cute Hawaiian Mochi; it’s a small ice cream wrapped in soft rice paste. The flavours include Mango Cheesecake, Passion Fruit and Mango (Vegan), Raspberry, Salted Caramel, Coconut and Matcha Green Tea.
If you insist on being virtuous, try one of the Mini Fruit Bowls – Mango, Blueberries and Coconut or Pineapple with Strawberries and Almonds. Drinks include smoothies, juices, tea, coffee, coconut water, sparkling fruit seltzers and a couple of wines.
