Looking for a fun, fresh, colorful, crunchy, salty, spicy, creamy, briny (I could go on forever...) way to get more of those doctor-recommended Omega-3s? Da Kine's got the one-word answer: poke! If you haven't tried this Hawaiian taste-turned-trend yet ("poke" means "to slice or cut" in Hawaiian; it's pronounced "POH-keh"), Da Kine's little outpost inside Winter Park's Meat House is an ideal spot to sample. A popular food truck that's gone brick-and-mortar - there's another location inside the Market on Magnolia, as well - bowls here are piled high with protein and smothered with all manner of add-ins from Maui onion to mango to masago. Choose a rice or spinach bed for your poke and enjoy it at one of Da Kine's few tables - take advantage of Orlando's superior weather outside - or grab it and go! Vegans, fear not, a tofu option is available, too.
- Lunch: "Poke, particularly if it's your first time, can be overwhelming due to the sheer number of possible ingredients. If line anxiety is an issue for you, just pick from one of the house bowls. You can't go wrong!"
- Best for Lunch Because: Poke that's on point, whether you're sitting and staying or grabbing and going.
