Poke, the Hawaiian and Japanese seafood dish, has exploded onto the culinary scene within the past year or so, but Dallas' soon-to-open 'Malibu Poke' restaurant hopes get stand out from the crowd by incorporating some modernity into the traditional fare. Describing itself as a "tech-savvy" poke restaurant, Malibu Poke will use personally built software and tablets to give consumers a more convenient and informative fast-casual dining experience.

Though poke is a superficially simple dish, consisting of little more than fresh fish with vegetables and a marinade, there's a lot to know about the core ingredients (i.e. the seafood itself). Beyond offering quick ordering and thus a reduction in the cost of staff, Malibu Poke's tech will give diners information about what they're eating -- knowledge that is surprisingly uncommon in the restaurant industry as a whole.
