Many people have asked us why we chose the “build your own bowl” concept. Angela, being a particular eater herself, believed in offering people options. She wanted people to have a fun experience building their own poke bowl, the way they want to enjoy it. Whether it be with or without cilantro, onions, salad, you name it! Everything in the bowl is completely customizable. We also offer preset bowls, our “Splash Favorites”, for those who want to let us to prepare their bowl.
It was important for Angela to bring back the flavors and cultures from Hawaii, the way she and her partner had experienced it. Some of the best poke offered in Hawaii are from the supermarkets, created by the local natives behind the deli counters. We were so fortunate to have one of the locals share their family recipes with us, which inspired many of the sauces we offer at Splash today.
Angela is also a graphic designer by trade. Every design piece in the restaurant has been meticulously thought out and designed, to bring to life the vision of a fun and fresh space for our guests. The fish pattern found on the front food counter was hand drawn by Angela while she was on the beach in Maui, to emulate the idea of our fresh ingredients being scooped from a fish bowl. The wood art on the north wall represent fish swimming in the ocean, among the bubble lights hung in the center of our space. The wooden mural was actually hand cut and stained by a woodworker in the family.
