Last year saw the opening of Raw + Rice; our very first dedicated poke bar on the Sunshine Coast just a stone’s throw from Mooloolaba Beach.
And now, due to overwhelming popularity, the team behind these deliciously fresh bowls of goodness have announced that they’re opening a second location in Noosa. Dreams we tell you, dreams!
And not just anywhere in Noosa either, Raw + Rice will be right in the middle of Hastings Street. Woot! Talk about a primo location.
If you’re not familiar with the amazingness that is Raw + Rice (who even are you?!) allow us to fill you in: poke bowl specialists on the Sunshine Coast, Raw + Rice serve up the freshest, tastiest poke bowls on the coast, that’s who.
So, you’ve not been about that poke bowl life until right this very second? No biggie, we’re here to set the record straight. Poke literally means “to slice or cut” in Hawaiian referring to various protein (typically fish) which is tossed over steamed rice and topped off with fresh veggies and mouth-watering sauces. It’s a slam dunk for healthy eaters. You can build-your-own-bowl at Raw + Rice, adding ingredients such as The Protein, The Freshness, The Sauce and finally The Crunch.
While we don’t have an exact open date just yet, stay tuned for more exciting updates over the next few weeks.
And remember it’s pronounced “poh-keh”, kids.
