I was invited to taste-test the next big thing in the San Gabriel Valley. Tea royalty Flour + Tea (of the famous Ten Ren lineage) is opening their newest concept PokeMIX in Pasadena. It’s a build-your-own poke bowl bar complete with Flour + Tea’s signature tasty boba and tea drinks and pastry items.




Step 1: Pick a bowl size.

Step 2: Pick a base (rice, seasonal greens, or half and half).

Step 3: Pick your main topping/protein. Choose your add-ons.



Choose from spicy tuna, salmon, tuna, shrimp, scallops as your protein. Then, add a drink to your selection. If you like sauces, PokeMix has a delicious spicy mayo sauce that they hand-make there.



PokeMix officially opens to the public on Sunday, March 1st so make sure to check it out. It’s definitely fast food done right.



My dear friend, Chef Jay, helped consult on the restaurant. He has a pretty hefty following so if you’re a fan of his you’ll be happy to know that he will be making regular cameos at the store. He loves to talk and give recomendations too so make sure to say, “Hi!”



I ordered a tuna and salmon mix and it definitely hit the spot. Although, I got a spicy mayo sauce, the dish did not need the sauce. Just eating it plain with the wasabi like chriashi bowl was tasty all by itself. Close up of my poke bowl.



Seriously, are you drooling yet? If you’re a frequent follower of mine on social media, then you probably know I’ve been a long-time fan of Flour + Tea. It’s so nice that you can now buy their drinks and get a fast and delicious meal at the same time. I am so excited for their grand opening. I hope you get a chance to check them out and let me know what you think!
