Paddles Up Poké

Paddles Up Poké is Idaho’s first and only specialty poké restaurant, and the official poké shop of the Boise State Broncos and Idaho Steelheads.

Paddles Up was founded in August 2016 by Dan Landucci. Why Paddles Up? When you’re rafting, putting your paddles up signifies getting into attack mode when approaching rapids. The term became a life motto for the Landucci family.

In August, Dan decided to put his paddles up and attack his life long dream of owning a restaurant. Dan partnered up with his long time friend, Jordan Tapangco, and together they have built a spot where Idahoans can go to refuel for their next adventure in life.

Paddles Up has three locations in Idaho: Downtown Boise, Meridian, and Sun Valley.

Paddles Up has been voted Best of Boise “Best Poké” since 2017!


What is poké?

Poké (pronounced POH-KAY) means “to section, slice, or to cut.” This Hawaiian classic is a very casual meal, that families in Hawaii have been packing on the go for years.

Poké has now evolved into trendy rice bowls that are customized per order. This tasty lunch is simple: chunks of raw fish marinated in our special house Piranha Sauce, packed with all the tasty toppings that you can find on your classic sushi rolls, and served on top of a bed of brown rice, white rice, zoodles, or fresh mixed greens.
