We have visited Poké Fresh several times since they opened last year and we had to recommend it in our new blog!
Poké Fresh, a locally owned restaurant in Cook Street Village. Check out our video interview with the owner, young local entrepreneur Aviv Guy – How Poké Fresh got started, where they get their ingredients from, what their added value is and more!
But first, What is a Poké bowl (“POH-keh”)?
As stated in people.com, Poké means “to slice or cut” in Hawaiian and refers to chunks of raw, marinated fish — usually tuna or salmon — which is then tossed over rice and topped with vegetables and umami-packed sauces.
What can we find in Poké Fresh bowls?
Usually white rice, brown rice or greens.
You can choose between several fish, including tuna and salmon. If raw fish isn’t your thing, look for options like tofu or crab meat.
Add toppings like avocado, onion, edamame and masago to add flavor and crunch.
Their sauces are amazing. Our favourite step when creating a custom poke bowl! They have options like Ponzu, Sriracha, Tahini-Miso and more.
Tortilla chips, Sesame seeds, fried onions… YUMM
