Aloha Poke Restaurant Review

I have shared before that our safe food when traveling is sushi. I was excited to learn that there was an Aloha Poke in the Ogilvie Station in Chicago.

Their website was clearly marked with the allergen information. I think it is the first time where the menu board had the items with gluten marked.

When ordering there is a sign on the register that says “tell us about any allergies”. I always like seeing signs like this. Thank you for asking!

My bowl of rice, tuna, avocado, cucumbers and onions with sesame oil was fantastic and just what I needed before seeing Cats at the Nederlander Theater.

Train trips to Chicago will be even better now that there is a safe place in the train station to eat.

Denver Sushi Review (Okinawa and Motomaki)

When traveling our safe food is Sushi.  It can easily accommodate for our Celiac needs and food allergy avoidances.  Following are the two restaurants we visited while in the Denver area.

After hiking Dinosaur Trail we headed to the city of Golden.  The town is cute and has lots of shops and restaurants.  We ate at the new Okinawa.  It had some great options and I was excited there was a roll with fruit and greens I could have.

Our waitress was knowledgable and helpful and we had a wonderful lunch.

The next day after hiking around Red Rock we ate at Motomaki in Lakewood.  Motomaki is Sushi Burrito’s and Bowls.  It is much like a Chipotle where you choose what goes in your Burrito or Bowl.  There menu is clearly marked with the gluten-free ingredients and the employees were happy to answer questions we had about any ingredients.   The sushi burrito was good and the bowl looked tasty.

I would return to either of these places to eat.  Thank you to both these Sushi restaurants for making our allergy travels safe.
