Kuula Poké – with various restaurants in London, Manchester and Madrid – is set to bring a taste of Hawaii to Birmingham when it opens later this year

Brummies will be able to enjoy a bit of sunshine in their bowl later this year when Hawaiian restaurant Kuula Poké opens in the city.

Taking over the Great Western Arcade site on Colmore Row that was formerly occupied by Yorks Bakery, the eatery will primarily serve salad bowls which are known as poké bowls.

Poké is a native Hawaiian raw fish dish which is usually served with traditional condiments like sea salt, seaweed and limu.

Seen as a mix of Japanese and Hawaiian cuisine, Kuula Poké will offer a number of healthy salad bowl-style options with customers able to select their preferred protein, base and toppings.

Keep an eye on for further developments.
