They're two of the biggest food trends filling stomachs around the globe, and they're making their way to Brisbane. We're talking about poke bowls and sushi burritos. One is a Hawaiian salad dish combining rice, greens and raw fish, while the other is exactly what you think it is — and they'll both be available at South Bank newcomer Suki from April 18.

Originally slated to open last November, the latest venture from The Ole Group (aka the folks behind Mucho Mexicano, Ole Restaurant and Mister Paganini) will be Brisbane's first specialty sushi burrito and poke bowl eatery. And, while pre-designed options will be available, Suki won't just provide its scrumptious offerings from a set menu. Making your own is all the rage here, with diners selecting the grain base, protein filling, other accompaniments and type of wrap for their burritos, and stepping through a similar process for their bowls.

Prepare to be spoilt for choice, basically. Seaweed wraps, bamboo rice, kelp leaves, swordfish, sticky beef with soy and ginger, pickled daikon, wasabi peas, soy eggs, pickled ginger and nine different types of sauces are all on the bill — and that's just a tiny selection of the various ingredients everyone conjuring up their own bowls and burritos can choose from.

As well as quite the hefty array of edible components, Suki will boast both indoor and outdoor seating for 60 as it serves up its wares from 11am to 9pm seven days a week. A second store is already in the works, and while the location hasn't yet been revealed, it's set to open in the coming months.

Find Suki at 182 Grey Street, South Bank from April 18. Check out their website for further information.
