Another good lunch spot in Soho, but it’s offering something different than the usual. Poke is a concept new to the London food scene. Originally from the tropical island of Hawaii. A Poke is fresh Hawaiiansushi bowl made with marinated raw fish, rice and a variety of fresh ingredients and zingy sauces. Poke means “to slice or cut” in Hawaiian.
There is no meat on the menu.
I got the HONI POKE (£8.90) – Salty mango, Sunomono Cucumber, Nori seaweed, Kimchi, Chive, Crispy onion, Chilli garlic sauce in a Sushi rice base and Tuna as my main. I found it brilliant! Loads of different things happening here, we have different temperatures, textures and tastes. Think it doesn’t have flavour? Think again. I got hit with heat from 2 different sources and loads of great flavours.
Thanks to Honi Poke for inviting me to come down and try a bowl.
Had my first Poke! From @honipoke What is a poke you ask..A fresh Hawaiian sushi bowl made with marinated raw fish, rice and a variety of fresh ingredients and zingy sauces. . No meat so fully halal. Well, I say fully they have octopus, which some say it not halal, so I won’t get into that. . I got a Honi Poke and it was really good. Tuna, salmon, Salty mango, Sunomono cucumber, Nori seaweed, Kimchi, Chive, Crispy onion, Chilli garlic sauce. Super fresh fish, loads of flavours and spicy, even the mango was a great touch, super soft melt in mouth mango! . Good for lunch and it closes at 9pm. The price if this bowl was just under £9.. I think that’s a bit expensive, but the price is for the clear quality in ingredients.
