This place opened today, located next to La Nonna.
Although it sells pokebowls as its 'thing' it is also open for breakfast toasts, cereal bowls, smoothies, and lunchpacks to takeaway.
It is part of a chain and also has branches in Palma, Can Pastilla, Palmanova, Manacor and Inca.

We popped in this morning for brekkie and I had toast with tomato, avocado, burrata & pesto. It was really tasty.
Russ had the toast with tomato, avocado & poached egg. Russ said his egg was slightly under - but most places we've had poached egg here we've found cook them under. Very much enjoyed apart from that.

The one thing we thought was a little strange and I think may put some people off was they send a waitress to take your drinks order but to order food you have to scan the QR code on the table. You choose what you want from the menu, put it in a 'basket' then checkout. The order then gets pinged to the kitchen.

Staff were great and decor is lovely.

We will be popping back to try their pokebowls and hopefully they do really well.

Toni 😊

We stopped and chatted to the owners the other day who were putting the finishing touches to this nice looking restaurant. Pokebowls are definitely the ‘in’ thing at the moment in PP as we noticed them on quite a few menus. Although I love the concept and they are delicious and healthy, it seems strange they’ve taken off in such a big way. Or maybe not if the locals love them? After all we don’t want roast dinners, fish and chips or steak and kidney pud all the time do we?

Not unwoke, maybe just not trendy enough

They come from hawaii and are basically a healthy bowl of food consisting of a rice base with toppings of different veg and a dressing and a protein source. Google it.

Very nice

The other place that does Poke bowls is the very successful Bocchoris run by the lovely Francisco who used to be in Ca Les Monges. We went twice as they were so delicious … healthy but really filling and great value at about 12€

Traditionally they are made using raw fish, apparently. I had to Google it!

If it contains pork is that a pig in a poke. Are they all the same or are some bespoke!
