About a year and a half after debuting its first location, Ono Poke will expand to a new outpost in Downtown Houston’s network of tunnels.

A post to the growing chain’s Facebook page announces that it will open at 500 Dallas Street later this year, joining the original Ono Poke in Montrose. Ono Poke originally got its start as a pop-up in 2016, making it one of the first restaurants to kick off the poke explosion in Space City. Since then, dozens of restaurants dedicated to the Hawaiian fish dish have opened their doors across Houston.

For diners who haven’t been to Ono Poke, the restaurant serves up a pretty standard selection of poke bowls. The offerings range from the restaurant’s traditional namesake dish, a bowl of salmon and tuna topped with Ono sauce, cucumbers, sesame seeds, furikake, and nori to a spicy salmon bowl that’s garnished with crushed Hot Cheetos, among other garnishes.

Ono Poke will debut in the Downtown tunnels sometime this fall. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
