It’s Spring glorious Spring! Ok – I know the weather hasn’t been so great lately, especially yesterday – Mother Nature, what an earth was with that – but still, I love this time of year. The weather warms up, the flowers come out, and I start to crave salads and light foods again.
One awesome place that I have discovered in my quest to be bikini ready is Love Poke. Located in the back streets of Coogee a block up from the beach, this secret gem does raw fish, great salads and healthy desserts – all of which are wholesome, massive and delicious. They describe themselves as Hawaiian sushi and I can see the connection.
A couple of friends and I met here for lunch one Sunday and had a great time. We each ordered fishy bowls of deliciousness. These come in different sizes depending on your hunger level. I was super hungry so I got a large. For around $20 (I made a couple of pricey choices) I got to choose 2 types of raw cured fish, two sides and black rice.
The fish choices change on a regular basis depending on what is fresh and available locally. My soy salmon and coconut barramundi were very tasty. My friends liked theirs too.
What really bowled one girl over though was the pumpkin pie. As an American, she craves the stuff and has often searched for it in vain here in Aus. She assured us it was perfection and just like the real stuff back home.
There are many great places to eat in Sydney but this one is so unique that I’d love to come back. The food was great, the staff were lovely and there was no mad scramble for parking or a table. If you are ever in a fishy mood – Take a stab at Love Poke. You won’t be disappointed.
