BYO Bowls (Hawaii 2017): Kilauea Poke Bowl
Grab life by the bowls! Or so goes the tag line of BYO Bowls. We found BYO Bowls on our return from the windward side of Oahu in the Hawaii Kai Towne Center. This fusion eatery’s concept is in having you Build Your Own… Bowl, that is.
For those diners that just can’t make up their mind on what to order, they also have a selection of popular bowls that you can pick from. When we dropped by for an early dinner, the spacious eatery wasn’t too busy.
We grabbed a Lychee Lemonade and a BYO Tea (lemonade & mango passion tea) which came in fairly large glasses ($5 each). They squeezed the lemonade fresh when we ordered it.
The Thai Noodle Bowl ($11.50) is a tasty concoction of rice noodles, bean sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cilantro, garlic, green onions, Thai basil, shrimp and peanut sauce with a fried egg on top.
While I generally prefer my poke bowls fairly basic when it comes to toppings, I have to admit that the Kilauea Bowl ($10) was amazing! They combine spicy tuna with creamy avocado, green onions, sweet onions, and tobiko topped with furikake and crispy garlic with a sriracha-based sauce. Loved the mix of spicy sauce with the fresh tuna and crunchy garlic.
Everything here tasted so fresh and the aroma of the food wafting through the air as they prepared your meal was quite pleasant.
