Residents have more food options to choose from with the opening of two new restaurants in  Monroe. Last week, Poke Station and Chicken Salad Chick opened their doors for business to eager customers.

Poke Station, located in the plaza near Books-A-Million, opened Thursday with multiple giveaways to customers. Poke is a deconstructed version of sushi which originated in Hawaii.

The ice cream and sushi restaurant is a place where guests can choose a base of rice, noodles, salad or a white rice and seaweed burrito wrap.

Then, they have a choice of protein, vegetables, sauces and toppings to add extra flavor or crunch. Some of the protein options include raw fish, crab and tofu.

The district coordinator of the restaurant, Kasey Wright, said there are five signature bowls on the menu designed for people who aren’t sure what they want and would like to sample options.

Chicken Salad Chick, located right beside Poke Station, opened their doors on Wednesday. They offer 13 varieties of chicken salad, including traditional, savory, spicy and fruity. There will be a 14th option that rotates. 

The franchise also offers egg salad, pimento cheese, sandwiches, mac and cheese and several salads.The chicken salad eatery also had several giveaways corresponding with their grand opening.

Monroe is set toopen more restaurants such as Panda Express and Walk On’s Bistreaux & Bar later in the year.
