One of the best things about living in Chicago is the food! Walking down the streets, you can easily find a wide range of restaurants from popular national chains to local gems. One of the foods that I have always wanted to try is poke. It’s one of the newer food trends of Chipotle-style sushi. You are able to customize the bowls to fit your liking from the base (rice, salad) to the proteins (tuna, spicy tuna, chicken, salmon, etc) to the best part… the toppings (crab salad, edamame, avocado, spicy mayo, the list goes on…). Poke is hard to find in Ann Arbor. In fact, I believe there may only be one place that serves it and it did not open until quite recently. For this reason, I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity being in Chicago and get a taste of it for myself. After having it once, I can say with confidence that it definitely lives up to the hype. My perspective may be skewed as a sushi lover, but poke is one of the best things I have tried in food-wise during my internship and I have already gone around and tried a couple other poke places in the city!
