“Poke” is a popular Hawaiian dish which consists of sushi-grade cut fish that's placed on rice or a salad.

The California-based eatery opened its first Arizona location in Scottsdale in April. It has quickly become a health food trend, as reported by Business Insider.

"Since the day we opened, we've been bombarded with requests for a second location ranging from North Scottsdale, to CenPho [Central Phoenix] to Tempe and the West Valley," said Jason Jantzen, co-owner of the Arizona location, in a media release.

Because of that success, Jantzen and his business partner, Michael Zimmerman, decided to open a second Ahipoke Bowl within the Chandler Pavilions Shopping Center near Interstate 10 and Ray Road.

The exact address is 820 N. 54th Street in Chandler. It is slated to open in mid-July.

The owners also said that they have other lease deals "in the works" and will release those details when they can.

Guests choose either rice or salad as the base then decide which seafood they want in it from tuna, spice tuna to salmon and shrimp, among others. Regular size includes two scoops of seafood and a large has three.

You then choose your sauce followed by vegetable toppings.

A regular size costs $8.95 and a large is $10.75.

You can visit the Scottsdale location at 2805 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale AZ 85257.
