OOH RAW! Poke + Juice Bar
Chef-driven applies not only to our menu, which was created by Guam native Executive Chef Dustin Atoigue, but to our entire approach to serving you an authentic, healthy and unique experience. Chef Dustin Atoigue has made it a priority to train and oversee experienced cooks to create a consistent dining experience that will make you want to roar, “OOH RAW!” We keep all our ingredients in temperature-controlled, stainless steel stations to ensure the highest standards of food safety, hygiene, and freshness that will make you want to come back for more.
Hafa Adai Inspired
In the Pacific Island of Guam, Hafa Adai is similar to “Aloha” in Hawaii. Since his childhood in Guam, Executive Chef Dustin Atoigue became familiar with traditional Hawaiian recipes under the guidance of chef Sam Choy of Hawaii. As Dustin grew up catching fish on his mainland, he implemented Guam-Hawaiian flavors to create fresh, healthy, and authentic poke that could not be found outside the Pacific Islands. Combining the inventiveness of our owners along with Chef Dustin’s traditional Pacific Island recipes, we took all the components to create a flavorful menu that you won’t find at your average poke joint.
Our Food Saves Lives
You may have heard the men and women who serve our country shout Oorah (United States Marine Corps), Hooah (United States Army), or Hooyah (United States Navy). In 1995, Sgt. Scott Stranger, Marine Corps Barracks Washington, said:
“Ooh-rah is not just a catchy little term that should be used lightly. It’s a feeling of emotion that comes from deep within and is used only when the amount of motivation in your gut has been built up so high it has no other choice but to explode through your vocal cords and crack the very air which tries to contain it.”
This battle cry can be heard by our team members because at OOH RAW! The food is only part of our story. We live to make a difference every day by raising awareness and funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. At checkout, customers have an opportunity to donate $1, $3, or $5 to write their name or post a photo of a family member or friend who served our country on our Wounded Warrior Project dedication wall. On top of that, we will match donations up to $5 on select days and beginning in 2019, we will host an event every Veteran’s Day at every OOH RAW! location and donate a portion of our sales to the Wounded Warrior Project. Finally, all active and retired military and service members will receive 10% off their check at every OOH RAW! location. For more information, visit www.woundedwarriorproject.org to learn more.
