If you love fresh poke bowls as much as we do, then you’ll be excited to know that poke legends Raw + Rice have opened their third store on the Sunshine Coast, taking up residence along Caloundra’s Bulcock Street.
It’s exciting news that locals down the southern end of the coast no longer need to travel far for their fresh poke fix.
So what can you expect from their new store? Well, if you’ve been lucky enough to pay a visit to their Mooloolaba or Noosa Heads locations, then you’ll already know that these humble little eateries have lots of character. And the new Caloundra store is no different, with hanging lights, plenty of greenery, lashings of white paint and a cabinet displaying a rainbow of fresh vegetables and salads.
With their philosophy being “every bowl has a story”, the folks at Raw + Rice take their poke bowl construction very seriously. And the story doesn’t begin when your order your bowl; in fact, it goes all the way back to when the ingredients in your bowl were planted, nurtured and harvested. That’s what makes the food at Raw + Rice so good. Everything is hand-picked, the fish is freshly caught and everything is supplied by local producers. And with so many options, there are endless poke bowl combinations for you to come up with, which is a good excuse to keep coming back.
One of our favourite things about Raw + Rice is the customisable menu. Choose from a protein base of fresh salmon, tuna, swordfish, tofu or chicken, and then add all the fillings your heart desires. Whether it’s brown rice, mixed greens, seaweed, or quinoa, you’ll be able to build your perfect bowl. Then, just make your choice from their range of delicious sauces, add a crunchy element and you’re good to go.
Healthy, delicious, easy and quick, a poke bowl from Raw + Rice is a lunch option that ticks all of the boxes. So, whether you’re a Caloundra local or you’re just interested in checking out their newest store, be sure to pay Raw + Rice a visit for the most authentic and fresh poke on the Sunshine Coast.
