The go-to poké bowl place in Birmingham has got to be Ono Poké, with the entire restaurant solely dedicated to these delicious rice bowls. They offer build your own bowls with all the toppings your poké loving heart could desire.

I recommend going with their Ahi Tuna rice bowl, and no matter the toppings make sure to get the Yum Yum sauce on top.
