POOL/PARK uses generous amounts of locally grown ingredients. In order to serve fresh vegetables to customers, there’s even a farm at the back of the store to grow vegetables.
Using such fresh ingredients, the menu features loco moco, hamburgers and pasta, daily specials, summer specials such as rice bowl topped with marinated red squid caught locally and many more.
