So, as we settle into another relaxing summer, Poke Loa is here to announce the beginning of Poke Loa Season in New Orleans!


What is Poke Loa Season?

Poke Loa Season is the time to fully appreciate the “aloha lifestyle” New Orleans has to offer by eating right and staying refreshed. It’s when we beat the heat by eating fresh food, sipping on cold drinks, and hanging out with friends and family. Poke Loa embraces Poke Loa Season by serving up delicious, health-conscious poke bowls and refreshing local beverages.

Here’s a quick guide to help you enjoy your summer and take full advantage of Poke Loa Season.


Poke is Here to Stay

Along with our favorite summer pastimes, we New Orleanians have always found immense pride in our local cuisine. New Orleans favorites like gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, red beans and rice, bananas foster, and countless others have been passed down through generations. However, the king among the famous and venerated NOLA fare is fresh seafood, and Poke Loa Season is a great time to appreciate it.


In a city with such an established food culture, you may think it would be difficult to find much variety in New Orleans, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. As a food-centric community, New Orleanians love good food from just about anywhere in the world! This means that New Orleans is up-to-date with the latest and greatest food trends. With the booming popularity of sushi and other raw diets, poke fits in swimmingly and is here to stay. If you’re always on the lookout for new and unique foods, fresh poke from locally sourced ingredients is sure to hit the spot.


The Perfect Complement to Your Summer Day

The Gulf Coast has a tropical climate, so it’s no wonder both Hawaiians and New Orleanians alike love poke! Poke is a refreshing and healthy dish that’s perfect for those hot summer days. It’s packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins, and electrolytes that are designed to give your body the natural energy that it needs. We also provide delicious, health-conscious, and local beverages like Big Easy Bucha, Bhoomi Cane Water, and our signature Agua Frescas. So, if your daily plans include a sun-drenched walk down Magazine Street or a bike ride through the CBD, consider stopping at Poke Loa for a meal that will cool you down and keep you going.


What Poke Loa Season in New Orleans Means

Celebrating Poke Loa Season means enhancing your day with food that does more than simply fill you up.


Poke Loa understands that New Orleanians eat with purpose—for us, meals are opportunities to take a break and slow the day down. So, instead of rushing through your lunch with a granola bar and an apple, give yourself some time to stop and smell the roses.


Poke is a raw food. That means it’s quick to prepare and convenient to grab if you have a short break during the workday.


We also like food that shares a story. There’s a reason you see fewer national fast food chains in Orleans Parish. We take pride in what we choose to eat and appreciate the high-quality foods that restaurants like Poke Loa provide. Much like the classic dishes in New Orleans, poke has been around for centuries, and its endurance is a testament to true quality.


That’s what Poke Loa Season is all about.
