  1. According to this article in Washington City Paper, four poke restaurants have either just opened or will open shortly in D.C. Poké Papa and Abunai Poke opened this month. Poki District and Honeyfish Poke are opening soon. I enjoyed the Poke at Hula Girl Bar and Grill in Shirlington and was wondering if anyone had tried the two new poke restaurants or had recommendations for places to get poke in/around DC or NoVA?
  2. There's a new Poki DC on L st...btw Ct and 19. Couldn't find it on the web. Soft opening today was tasty. I found this Poke more than OK. Very nice people there everything was what it was supposed to be. Fresh, cold, warm, soft, crunchy...It is a bowl of rice with stuff on it but I pretty much love rice with stuff on it.
  3. Poke is fast-becoming a trend (or fad, take your pick) in the Washington, DC area - DC has about 4-5 Poke-based restaurants that have either just opened, or are about to open. New York-based PokéWorks opened in Korean-heavy Annandale, VA (about ten miles southwest of DC) early in 2017, and is also opening in The Heights (as well as in Dallas this Summer). So, brace yourselves, Houston: Hawaii is coming to you, and don't be surprised to see a few more - mostly using the fast-casual / quick-serve format. You know what? I still don't know if "Poke" has an <<accent aigu>> over the "e" or not - seemingly 1/3 of the places online have it, and about 2/3 don't. I'm not even sure if it's pronounced "po-kay" or "poke"; I just know that when it's done right - *with fresh fish* (refer to sashimi), it is a monster dish. The problem, of course, being "fresh fish" - which doesn't seem to be much of a problem in Hawaii.
  4. Nice lunch today at http://pokepapa.com Much better than the Annandale version of Poke. Similar to the California places I wrote about...choice of rice (brown, while or black) and/or salad, plus scoops of fish (tofu and chicken also) and toppings. Big difference they had 3-4 varieties of salmon and Ahi already tossed with dressing. A Korean spiced version, basic sweet with green onions, and a siracha mayo mix...plus plain Ahi and Salmon, cooked scallops, some ceviche, etc. I had 3 scoops trying the Korean, basic, and siracha. This saves the step of tossing the fish with your choice of sauce...but having 3 different flavors confuses things inside the bowl. Lots of choices of toppings, including fake crab salad, seaweed, ginger, etc. The crunchy toppings are self service, after you pay. Overall, very good. Would be a great place to have your first Poke! I left very satisfied.
  5. I can't keep track of all of the new poké joints opening or popping up around Houston, but I can say that I am a fan of Pokeology. I was a little surprised to see that rather than a standalone restaurant, it's a permanent stand/booth scenario situated in the back of Doc Holliday's bar in Rice Village. They have a number of "signature" bowls you can choose from, or a Chipotle-like build your own bowl option. There are 2 sizes, and for most people, I would recommend the larger. @CeeBee chose the "Applemachi" (hamachi, with green apple) and I went with the "Salmon Thaiviche" (salmon, fish sauce, basil, thai chili). All bowls come with cucumber and seaweed salad. I added on masago (no charge) for a little extra saltiness and didn't regret it. The proportions were right, the fish fresh, and not overly marinated. The rice was nicely seasoned, and stood on its own. Apparently the head chef behind the operation has several years in the sushi business, and the quality of his rice reflects that. Everything is served in plastic to-go bowls, and there is seating both inside the bar (dark and not terribly inviting, especially when the weather's nice), and on the patio.
  6. My friend, who was born, raised and now lives on the island of Hawaii pronounces it po-kay. So that's what I have always called it. There is a fresh fish shop in the Ferry Building in San Francisco that carries "poke mix" from Hawaii with recipes printed on the back. There is no accent over the "e" on their packaging. It includes Hawaiian salt, ogo (seaweed) and chili pepper. They recommend adding sliced green onion as well. I usually buy a few of these packets and keep them on hand, and when I get the chance to buy some nice, fresh fish, I am poke ready.
