Poke (pronounced “Po-Kay”) is a raw fish-based meal-in-a-bowl that’s popular dish in Hawaii, but has recently become a hot food trend across the US. Fresh fish is cubed and mixed with various sauces – typically salty, spicy, or creamy – and combined with a variety of flavourful toppings.
Jessica & Steven first tried Poke in Hawaii, and it was love at first bowl. To their surprise, despite Toronto’s diverse food and culture, Poke was not readily available. So began a quest to recreate that experience — using sustainable, quality ingredients — and to share it with their city through their new food venture umamipoke.
