What is Poke?
Poké (which rhymes with okay) is a traditional Hawaiian dish made up of raw fish. The word poké is Hawaiian for "to section" or "to slice or cut." Traditionally, poké is diced raw fish that is then marinated in a flavorful sesame-soy dressing with cucumbers, onions, and sesame seeds.
At Pola Poke Bowls we have taken this delicious Hawaiian treat and made it our own by adding a variety of fruits, vegetables, and dressings that will make your taste buds rejoice with happiness.

What does Pola mean?
Since Poké is from Hawaii we wanted to make sure to pay homage to the Hawaiian culture however we could. Pola is the Hawaiian translation for bowl or house. We have also taken into account the literal meaning of the word in our logo. Using the roof of a house for the top portion and its mirror image as a bowl on the bottom portion.
What is an acai bowl?
Acai (pronounced ah-sah-ee) is a type of berry native to tropical rain forests of Central and South America. This dark purple berry is considered a superfood due to its high antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
At Pola, we blend this superfruit with other fruits and berries creating a smoothie, which is served in a bowl and topped with granola and fresh fruit.
Come in and try one of our tasty signature acai bowls or Pola’s seasonal creations today.
All of the coffee served at Pola is locally roasted. Star Village Coffee Roasters is a Native American owned and family operated coffee roasting company located on tribal land, in Verdi, NV. At Star Village, we undoubtedly walk a different path. To us, tribal-owned and tribal-operated is more than a slogan. We understand how business ownership amongst tribal members has the transformative power of revitalizing our communities.
Growing up on the reservation, we observed how the absence of small business investment located within our tribal community exacerbated the growing disparity between Main Street and Indian Country.
That's why Star Village Coffee Roasters embodies a cultural ethos of indigenous entrepreneurship, which are self-determined, resurgent, and self-sustained...Kopiśi (because of coffee).
