According to Nation’s Restaurant News, poke, the Hawaiian dish of chopped or cubed raw fish dressed with sweet/savory sauce is one of the hottest food trends that we’ll see in 2016.
Tokyo Joe’s, the Asian-style fast-casual restaurant with two locations in North Texas (Richardson and McKinney), is introducing a two brand new poke bowls to the menu.
Ahi Tuna Poke bowl – Marinated Ahi Tuna served on sushi rice with avocado, cucumber, sweet and green onions, sesame seeds, lemon wedge and crushed macadamia nuts.
Spicy Salmon Poke bowl (gluten-free) – Salmon with sriracha aioli served over sushi rice with avocado, cucumber, sweet and green onions, sesame seeds and a lemon wedge.
I sampled the Spicy Salmon Poke bowl and loved the fresh chunks of salmon and the heat of the sriracha aioli. If you like heat, this is the dish for you!
If you haven’t tried Tokyo Joe’s yet, you should! The food is fresh with most dishes served sautéed, grilled, steamed or raw. The build-you-own bowl option is very popular with individuals who want to customize their meal.
