Raw + Rice

Fortitude Valley

Raw and Rice, the Sunshine Coast's popular poke bar, has opened its first Brisbane location in uber-cool California Lane in the Valley, dishing up delicious bowls of goodness.

The brainchild of best mates Ben and James, Raw and Rice specialises in Hawaiian/Japanese-inspired poke (pronounced poh-keh) bowls of rice with raw marinated fish and fresh vegetables.

The tiny eatery provides take-away as well as outdoor dining in the funky laneway. Customers can choose bowls from the menu or build their own bowls with plenty of options to choose from.

Select the base (brown rice, sushi rice, quinoa or mixed greens), pick the protein (salmon, tuna, white fish, tofu, poached chicken), add fresh veggies and herbs (avocado, red onion, cucumber, carrot, edamame, pickled ginger, coriander, mint, basil, bean sprouts), then the sauce (sesame tahini, coco-lime, ponzu, wasabi mayo, tamari) and lastly the crunch (wasabi peas, crispy shallots, coco flakes, sesame seeds, tobiko, nori). 

When it comes to fresh and healthy eating, you can't get much better than this.
