Boise is exploding and has been voted as one of the top cities in the nation for growth. It’s a great time to be in business in Idaho’s capital city, as Dan Landucci found with his restaurant, Paddles Up Poke in Boise operated in partnership his long-time friend Jordan Tapangco and his wife, Mandy.

Poke originated in Hawaii and is made with diced raw fish. For Paddles Up Poke, this tasty lunch is simple, with chunks of raw fish marinated in their special house Piranha Sauce, packed with all the toppings you find in classic sushi rolls and served on a bed of brown rice, white rice, zoodles of fresh mixed greens. You can order popular bowls on the menu or create your custom poke rice bowl. Dan is so committed to the quality of his product he flies in fresh fish daily and created his own selection of 9 sauces you can add to your bowl, made fresh in house, and his wife, Laura, dubbed him the Sauce Boss. He continues to innovate to offer new products.

Paddles Up Poke launched in May 2017, and it’s taken off, now with 19 employees and a second location in Eagle.
