Poke Bowl is Now Open in Plaza Del Mercado

In December we let you know that Maryland-based Poke Bowl, a restaurant serving poke bowls, bubble tea, a variety of appetizers, and more, is coming to 2229 Bel Pre Road in Plaza Del Mercado– replacing Smoothie King, between Pizza Stop and Aldi. The restaurant is now open.  Store Hours:

Mon – Thur: 11:00 am - 9:00 pm
Fri & Sat: 11:00 am - 9:30 pm
Sunday: 12:00 noon – 9:00 pm

Per Poke Bowl: The original poke bowl, invented in Hawaii, came to Hunt Valley, Maryland in 2016 to be the first Poke restaurant. In the next two years, seven stores have been opened in Maryland. The fresh and healthy foods were loved by the locals. This was thanks to our founder, John, who created unique sauces like Ginger Hawaii sauce, Sweet Chili Aloha and House sauce, that is mixed with sashimi to produce a fresh and appealing taste. These sauces are combined with green onions, sesame, minced ginger and fresh salad. In our Poke bowl, we hope people enjoy delicious and nourishing foods. The founder of poke bowl has 25 years of Japanese cuisine experience and 6 years of poke bowl experience. From here and onwards, our market is beginning to promote Poke cuisine across the United States. This convenient, healthy, and casual food will bring deep appeal to food lovers.

Poke Bowl has five locations in Maryland, primarily in the Baltimore region with one location in Frederick. Signage has just been posted on the window informing shoppers of the restaurant’s impending arrival, but an opening date is now available. Smoothie King, which closed permanently last month after four years at Plaza Del Mercado, has additional Montgomery County locations in Bethesda and Rockville (Fallsgrove and Congressional Plaza), and an upcoming location in Olney. The Poke Bowl menu can be seen here.
