Jumping on one of the year’s hottest trends and right in time for spring is Johannesburg’s tropical new poké bar, ONO Poké Eatery, which has opened in Illovo. ONO, which means delicious in Hawaiian, has a strong focus on bowl food to encourage healthier eating with some pretty Instagrammable poké, breakfasts bowls and health-packed protein shakes.
The fresh new eatery, which is suited to both sit-in and takeaway meals, is located on Corlett Drive in Illovo and opened its doors two weeks ago. What’s on the menu? Expect the likes of overnight oats for breakfast, chocolate protein pudding and matcha bowls, as well as poké bowls filled with brown, black or white rice, with proteins of raw salmon and tuna or cooked chicken and tofu, finished off with healthy toppings of your choice. There are also house bowls in medium and large sizes, which include fresh trimmings of seasonal salsa, edamame beans, avo, zingy dressings and slaws.
To wash it all down, ONO Poké Eatery offer coffees, build-your-own protein shakes, and health shakes in flavours of Lunch Bar and English Breakfast all made with almond milk and vegan pea proteins. The ONO team is also dedicated to sourcing fresh and completely sustainable local produce for the menu, and all packaging is made from biodegradable material.
