Taste of Aloha!

Over the recent years, there’s a few fast food chain on the rise includes Chipotle that serves American style Mexican burrito and tacos. Last year, I was introduced to another fast food place that hid in the loop and Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. Aloha serves sashimi (raw fishes) over a bowl of rice with condiments. At first when I heard about Aloha, I thought it was a restaurant that serves Hawaiian cuisine. I was super excited as I never had Hawaiian cuisine before. Much to my surprise, it was a fast food place. It is a sashimi version of Chipotle. I believe it got its name from the colorfulness of  the bowl. Their menu style is so much similar to Chipotle, where you choose the size of bowl, select the base (white rice, brown rice or greens), pick the poke (tuna, salmon or tofu) and finished it off with condiments to go on top of the bowl. The food was quite refreshing, tasted nothing like sushi (raw fish over rice) nor rolls (raw fish with condiments rolled with rice). It does give you that Hawaiian feeling (although I never been there). Most restaurant are beginning to incorporated recycling ideas. This one in particular uses empty cans to grow small house plants for their decoration. I believe it supply people with idea on how to recycle their empty cans as well.
