California-based Pokeatery opening location at Mueller

The poke scene in Austin is about to get a little more crowded. California-based Pokeatery announced today that the first location in Texas would open before the end of this year at 1201 Barbara Jordan Blvd. in the space previously occupied by Tino’s Greek Cafe. It will be the first location outside of California for the restaurant owned by husband-and-wife team of Derek and Joann Chung.

The menu features customizable poke boxes, pokecado toast, rice noodles-based bowls, and beer floats made with Hawaiian beer and Dole Whip pineapple soft serve.

“Austin’s eclectic culture and growing food scene has made it the perfect choice for Pokeatery’s first US location outside of California,” Joann Chung said in a release. “We look forward to bringing our authentic Hawaiian flavors, customizable, fresh poké boxes, and new beer floats to Austin and beyond.”
