Maca Nutter (S$6)

The superfood smoothie bowl was quite refreshing and smooth, except for the frozen pieces of banana in the base. I like the feel of the burst of pomegranate in the mouth.

Chinese New Year feasting has (almost) come to an end – it's time to kick back on the indulgent bingeing and go for more wholesome foods!
This is my favourite at @apoketheory: fresh salmon cubes tossed in a slightly spicy marinade and served on a bed of sushi rice, flanked by cherry tomatoes, edamame, mango, lime avocado, spiced roasted cashews and kale chips.
Plus we got to top it off with Green Caviar, specially imported by @mealbelly. Shaped like tiny grapes with high nutritional value, it's easy to prepare too! Just simply #RinseSoakServe. Prices begin from $12 for 100g of green caviar. Be sure to check out their website www.mealbelly.com.
A Poke Theory rolled out its first poké bowl at its Boon Tat outlet four months ago, and already it has won over the hearts of many young CBD folks. It's a convenient and favourable dining option in the CBD (there are plenty of seats), so head down early to avoid disappointment. The two sizes, Regular (from $11.50) or Large (from $15), refer to the amount of fish you get, not the size of the bowl. Choose from one of three bases (rice, quinoa or lettuce) and one of four marinades — get the signature sushi rice infused with garlic and chili and the spicy mayo salmon for your marinade. Toppings like cherry tomatoes, cubed pineapples and furikake are free flow, while premium toppings like Kale Chips, Crispy Salmon Skin and Spiced Cashew Nuts ($2 each) come highly recommended by the Burpple community. Don't leave without having their Superfood Smoothie Bowl ($6) to share — we're partial towards the refreshing Raspberry Tropic that comes topped with pomegranate seeds, mango cubes, coconut chips and sunflower seeds.
Avg Price: $15 per person

Preferred the Original Shoyu Tuna ($11.5 for 100g) among the two we tried. Wish the poke cubes were bigger though.. the significance of the toppings and base seemed more in my mouth😬 On a side note, the premium toppings I've tried so far were delicious - kale chips ($2) and spiced roasted cashews ($2) !
Made with a blend of banana and soy milk, you will find A Poke Theory’s range of Superfood Smoothie Bowls miles apart from the sugar packed version. A great alternative to ice cream that are loaded with the bad stuff, their rendition not just caters to the health fanatics, as I am definitely not one. Having the Raspberry Tropic ($6.00), the added element of raspberries gave a nice tartness (as well as colour) to the banana-y bowl which tasted pretty good together and had great textures along with all the other toppings - pomegranate, mango, crunchy coconut chips, and sunflower seeds. Reminding me of nice cream, the consistency of this natural fruit flavour combination was smoother and makes for a fantastic treat.
A healthy lunch that wasn't overly filling. The regular Poke bowl (100g of salmon) starts at $12.50 and you can select the regular ingredients for free, or add on $1 or $2 per ingredient for the "premium" range which consists of exciting things like kale chips or pomegranate seeds to get your poke bowl looking extra fine!
Back again for the second time, the sashimi is still fresh, vegetables are still crunch, sauces are still on point.
Great for a quick and healthy lunch.

Clearly, Hawaiian poke bowls are all the rage now and I do have many theories when it comes to these colourful healthy ‘Po-kay’ Bowls (pun intended). However, hearty, healthy, and tasty may be the winning formula for this sleek yet casual food joint.
Filled with greens, fresh protein cuts, grains and distinct sauces for that well-balanced bite. Each A Poke Theory’s bowl offers an interesting myriad of textures. Building your very own poke bowl is simple too, choose your carb (Lemon Herb Quinoa/ Signature Sushi Rice/Romaine Lettuce), pick your flavoured fish (Original Shoyu Tuna/ Spicy Garlic Sesame Tuna/ Spicy Mayo Salmon/ Avocado Miso Salmon), and select from the range of standard toppings. Also, pimp it up with the premium toppings ($2) prepared daily such as Kale Chips and Spiced Roasted Cashews.
Having the regular portion of Avocado Miso Salmon on a bed of nutty quinoa tossed in fresh lemon and chopped cilantro, I found the flavours to be pretty mild but the avo sauce was intriguing as the initial creaminess gave way to the hint of saltiness from the miso. You can also give the other sauces a try and spice up your bowl at the side counter.
The bowl, for me, unfortunately lacked a little oomph and fell short from the many praises that I have read about. But worth a try nonetheless, especially for a guilt-free lunch option!
Enjoyable and damn filling. Basically pick a base (sushi rice/ quinoa/ romaine lettuce), flavour (shoyu/ spicy garlic sesame tuna, avocado miso/ spicy mayo salmon - no worries if you can't make up your mind. They've got the exact sauces on the side!), weight (regular was filling enough for me) and finally unlimited choice of toppings (essentially six: carrot, edamame, cucumber, tomatoes, pineapples and tobiko; the rest at additional cost). Lastly, premium toppings if you'd like.
Went for the gluten-free option lemon herb quinoa, creamy, (mildly) spicy mayo salmon and added $2 for the premium topping of their spiced cashew nuts which is made fresh daily, according to their staff - NO REGRETS it was so darn good!!! A little spicy/ savoury/ sweet all rolled in one with crunchy nutty goodness (ended up buying a pack home 😛) . And then I added the other sauces which were all good but if I could choose only one, it'll be the spicy garlic sesame for that extra fragrant oomph.
Ooooooh love!!!!!! This has been on my eating wish list for quite awhile. Opted for kahlua meat and lime avocado top ups and shared with a pal, and it was a gigantic fulfilling serving!!! Everything was tangy and zesty and fresh and the fried shallots added just the fried crunch to this lovely mix :) happy meal!!! Will come back soon teehee
Meet the poke at A Poke Theory. This raw fish salad marries fresh seafood (tuna or salmon) with flavourful add-ins like tobiko, furikake, sesame seeds, pineapple, carrot, cherry tomato, Japanese cucumber, edamame, and nori flakes. It's a really tasty way to up my omega-3 intake.
🗒 Regular Original Shoyu Tuna Bowl ($11.50)
Made from soy milk and banana topped with berries, nuts and pomegranate, the amount of nutrients in this bowl of superfood is said to be a good meal replacement... ok I shall stick my mains to the poke bowls and leave this for dessert instead.
More fish please! 🐟🐟🐟
I must say the seasonings for the fish here are spot on. Not too strong nor overpowering. The touch of cashew nuts and various sauces is just splendid.
Monster wants to poke.

Perhaps my expectations had been raised after reading the good reviews, because, while nothing was bad, it was just ok and not anything mind-blowing.
The ingredients used were very fresh - the pineapples provided a nice burst of sweetness, while the acidity of the tomatoes really brightened the whole dish. I also liked how the peas, cucumber, and carrots gave it a nice crunchy texture. The fish, however, was kind of underwhelming - it didn't really have a lot of sesame flavour and (perhaps it was because it was tuna as opposed to salmon) it felt slightly tough and chewy/sinewy. Perhaps their salmon would have been a better option! Portion-wise, while it seemed tiny, it's actually quite ok if you're not looking to be super full.
Just note: it gets really crowded around lunchtime, so come early (1130am-ish) if you want seats immediately.
