Our Story

Our founder, Zen, first got a taste of poke after spending his childhood summer in Oahu, Hawaii. This paradise has fully established his passion towards fresh ingredients. With many years of experience within the food industry, Zen became a proud sushi chef and a successful multi-restaurant owner. He was envisioned to bring fresh and healthy traditional Hawaiian flavor to his valued customers.

Sally is a Purdue alumna. As a boilermaker and a poke lover, she and Zen were quickly onboard to bring the tropical island paradise to the Purdue campus. Their goal is to serve fresh pacific flavors going beyond the bowl and creating unforgettable experiences for all Boiler Makers.

Zen poke is the place for lovers of Poke! You are getting a lot of flavors into the bowl. Even having a veg base without rice is lovely because of the great selection of toppings and bases. Service is amazing as well- super friendly people at the counter!!

Tried my first poke bowl at Zen poke and I am in love with it. It’s my healthy fast-food place. Amazing fresh made poke and lots of choices and the staff is very helpful when it comes to making that choice and making alterations. Price is also very fair.

What an amazing little gem of a restaurant, the place is so clean and nice and smells good being a raw-fish and all. I love the food, the variety and great selection of what was available. The staff were so friendly. I will definitely come back again and again.
