We are The Poke Guy! A Poke restaurant in Vancouver serving up the freshest Hawaiian cuisine. Poke restaurants in Vancouver have been getting more popular and we are not surprised! Poke, pronounced “poh-kay ” is a delicious fresh and healthy meal that offers a variety of outstanding Hawaiian flavours. If you are wondering where Poke Bowls came from, what is in them that makes them so tasty and what makes our poke so special, we have it all covered for you.
Poke originates from the beautiful islands of Hawaii. The Poke Bowl, which translates as “diced fish salad”, is a traditional dish made from an array of fresh ingredients that are easily found on the islands. Common ingredients include tuna and salmon, rice, avocado, pineapple, corn, and vegetables. Over the years it has become one of Hawaii’s staple dishes, which means you can easily find it being served all over town at potlucks, gatherings, delis, grocery stores, restaurants and food trucks.
It is quickly gaining popularity on the mainland, and because one of the main ingredients in poke is raw fish there has been an influx of poke restaurants in Vancouver. Other ingredients you can find at The Poke Guy are seaweed salad, nori, exotic fruits like pineapple and mango, edamame, avocado, cucumber, tomato, rice, and more.
What makes us stand out from other poke restaurants in Vancouver is our dedication to deliver the best poke ever with quality ingredients. To accomplish this, we have partnered with Ocean Wise and are proud to be Canada’s first and only poke restaurant in Vancouver to be partnered with them. With today’s growing demand for seafood, we want to do our part in ensuring we are only using Ocean Wise, who source their seafood responsibly and sustainably.
Although poke bowls seem like very simple dishes, do not be fooled.
They are bursting with juicy island flavour! The Poke Guy captures the exotic Hawaiian flavours through delicious marinades and the freshest seafood such as Ahi Tuna, Sockeye Salmon, Albacore Tuna, Atlantic Salmon, and Sockeye Belly. We serve our poke at its best, meaning that we get it fresh on the daily and will close our doors as soon as it is sold out to avoid having our seafood sit out for an entire day. We also offer vegetarian and vegan options with our tofu poke option!
