If it has perfect in the name, it will either be far from perfect or totally perfect. Right?

During one of our first days exploring Utrecht we stumbled upon Poké Perfect and dare I say, it was indeed perfect.

I’d only had one poké bowl prior to visiting Poké Perfect. Blasphemy, I know!

So, I convinced my non-fish loving fiancé to join me for lunch at Poké Perfect to see what the hype was all about. Back up, the first time I had a poké bowl I was just getting over being sick so I couldn’t taste anything at all. What a nightmare, right?

I suppose I could have used it to my advantage to eat just vegetables for a week – but instead I went out for poké and also mac and cheese. #nojudgementzone

Poké Perfect in Utrecht

If you’re new to poké, don’t be intimidated. This spot has some poké bowl options on the menu already, so you don’t have to create your own if you don’t feel comfortable doing so. Luckily, they make it easy if you are – it’s just like ordering a custom salad, but this one includes raw fish.

Oh yeah, don’t let raw fish scare you away!

Tropical Ahi Poké Bowl

I didn’t grow up eating seafood, so it’s taken quite some time for me to not only take a liking to it, but to even make it through a meal with seafood. And now, I’ve fallen in love with calamari (fried seafood is the way to start if you’re new to it), oysters, poké bowls, and tuna tartare. There are a few others, but these are my current top seafood picks.

Back to Poké Perfect.

I ordered the Tropical Ahi Poké Bowl, which seemed to be a limited time special. Tim made his own, which was also delicious. And, for those of you who don’t love fish but love bowl meals – he made his with chicken! The tropical bowl was so perfect for the summer. If you’re in the area, it’s worth a visit! And, grab a seat outside if you can – Utrecht’s al fresco dining scene is the best.

Are you loving poké bowls, too? Or are you new to the Hawaiian dish?
