Living the vegan lifestyle can often be tricky. Finding meals to suit your diet isn't always straightforward and sometimes vegan options just aren't exciting. However, with the new poké craze, more and more vegan options are opening up. Poké bowls are a Hawaiian speciality which are also hugely popular in Japan, and they have now made their way to Dubai, much to our delight. The dish is usually made with raw fish, however they are hugely customisable and can be made with whichever ingredients you like. Without further ado, let's explore the best vegan poké bowls you can find right here in Dubai today.
For a meal that leaves you feeling healthy, energised and full, be sure to go for the Lanai poke bowl from Poke and Co. This dish is made with only the freshest and healthiest veggies, which will have you feeling healthier with each bite, including mushrooms, edamame, spring onions, radish, avocado and coriander. It's also topped with tasty tofu and pineapple and sprinkled with matcha miso sauce and chilli flakes for a little spicy kick.
