It all began with a convivial men's evening, where passionate hobby chef Alexander Kirschniok invited the brothers Ilias, Jalalle and Oualid Chahboune to join him for a Poké dinner. It quickly became clear to the friends: Frankfurt needs Poké! The healthy food trend, which sloshed from Hawaii to New York a few years ago and has since conquered European metropolises, is a perfect fit for a cosmopolitan city like Frankfurt. Alexander Kirschniok and Ilias Chahboune spent two months researching on site in Hawaii. Further months of travelling to New York or London followed, where various Poké variants were tested. The perfect inspiration to introduce the Frankfurters to the colourful world of Poké Bowls in their own shop.
Together with Pablo and Wlassios Kordonias, the co-founders of City Beach and City Alm on the roof of the parking garage Konstablerwache, the Chahaboune brothers and Alexander Kirschniok have now brought a little piece of Hawaii to the Hanauer Landstraße. And so, when you enter "Kahuna Poké Bros", stress and hustle and bustle remain outside. In order to keep the order as relaxed as possible, a very simple, time-saving system is used here: Order slips are waiting for the guests at the entrance. The view of the large blackboard then gives a good overview of the Signature Bowls or the individual ingredients from which you can put together your own individual bowl. The completed order form is then handed in at the counter, where the bowl is freshly prepared. If you have any questions or would like to make a recommendation, the team will of course be happy to provide advice and assistance...
For Poké-newcomers the choice of one of the six Signature Bowls is recommended. During our visit we were allowed to try three of them. Our favourite was the Gangnam Style Poké with tender beef bulgogi, red onion and soy sprouts. As topping there are Kimchi, Edamame, as "crunchy" additive roasted garlic, roasted onion and pomegranate and as sauce Sriracha Mayo. The taste of the marinated meat combines perfectly with the sweet and spicy elements. The intensity of taste also shows that great importance was attached not only to the freshness of the ingredients, but also to their quality. It took some time to find the right suppliers for the sometimes quite exotic ingredients. But the intensive research paid off absolutely!
Also the vegan Mana Poké (Tofu, Edamame, Spring Onion, Red Onion, with Mango Salsa and Beetroot Salad as Topping) could convince us as well as the Traditional Ahi Poké (Tuna, Spring Onion, Red Onion, Macadamia, Coriander with Wakame, Mango Salsa as Topping). Refreshing, intense, not too powerful but still satiating - and simply damn tasty! If you prefer to put together your own poké, you can choose between different side dishes (rice, quinoa or salad), the various main ingredients (fish, tofu, beef or chicken) and lots of toppings (for example algae, sesame or avocado). This guarantees that everyone is served the right bowl for their individual taste.
The day at the "Kahuna Poké Bros" starts not with lunch, but with breakfast. And for that, besides fine coffee and other drinks, porridge and delicious smoothie bowls are offered. Especially recommended here is the Açaí Bowl, which tastes very refreshing but not too sweet. As toppings different fruits, but also Chia seeds, honey or almond slicers are offered here. The premium toppings are really special: pollen, cocoa nibs or goji berries are available here to refine the bowl.
Whether for breakfast, lunch break or dinner, whether for relaxed enjoyment on the spot or for a quick to-go, one thing is always the same: the great taste and the cordial, relaxed atmosphere. No 08/15 offer, but "Your Bowl of Happiness". Absolutely recommendable!
