Robin had a Paddles Up Bowl – Tuna, Avocado, Onion, Cucumber, Green Onion, Ginger, Sesame Seeds which, she said was pretty good. I had a Lucky Peak Shellfish – Shrimp, Scallops, Crab, Sweet Onion, Cucumber, Sweet Korean, Carrots, Green Onion, Sesame Seeds, which was good, I will get a small bowl next time. I just wish the shrimp were something larger than the micro salad shrimp and bay scallops – the small ones. hey were 1 oz servings. I will rate this at a 31/2-Star restaurant.

Here is a little more about them from their webpage.
Poké (pronounced POH-KAY) means “to section, slice, or to cut.” This Hawaiian classic is a very casual meal, that families in Hawaii have been packing on the go for years. Poké has now evolved into trendy rice bowls that are customized per order. This tasty lunch is simple: chunks of raw fish marinated in our special house Piranha Sauce, packed with all the tasty toppings that you can find on your classic sushi rolls, and served on top of a bed of brown rice, white rice, zoodles, or fresh mixed greens.
WHY PADDLES UP
Paddles Up was founded in August, 2016 by Dan Landucci. When you heard the name you may have said, “Why Paddles Up?” Well, to answer your question, when you’re rafting, putting your paddles up signifies to get into attack mode when approaching rapids. The term stuck and putting your paddles up has become a life motto for the Landucci family. In August, Dan decided to put his paddles up and attack his life long dream of owning a restaurant. Dan partnered up with his long time friend, Jordan Tapangco, and together they have built a spot where Idahoans can go to refuel for their next adventure in life.
