While i was hanging out around town, i have seen a lot of shops such as “A Poke Theory”. To be honest, i found the name quite weird as the only Poke i am familiar with are Pokemon. So i was wondering whats up with these poke bowl?
After sometimes, i saw more and more of these Poke bowl Shops with long queues, especially around CBD areas at lunch time. So I did some research back home to find out what is this “Poke” all about.
So actually Poke is a Hawaiian dish which traditionally is raw fish salad but modern version also include other poke such as beef.
I believe it has been quite popular in Singapore for the past 1 – 2 years which i was not aware of. So 1 day as i was in Millenia Walk, i came across a shop called “Poke Doke”.
Its a halal certified poke shop. So out of curiosity, i went to give it a try. Better late than never to jump into this Poke bandwagon.
So to order, you will be given a piece of paper as the menu and you just need to tick which ingredients you prefer
So basically it is something like a salad with extra ingredients especially the fish such as salmon or tuna. 1 of the other reason it is popular is also due to the fact that it is a healthy dish, as the younger generation now are more aware of healthy food. Especially those who love sahshimi, you will surely love poke bowls.
But 1 thing do take note that its quite pricy, for example here in Poke Doke the price starts at $12.50. For halal poke bowl restaurants, Poke Doke is 1 of them. I am not sure of any other,i think A Poke Theory might be halal too, you can google it.
Also for Poke Doke, they have payment via Favepay which will give you 10% cashback, so if you are working around nearby Millenia Walk then it will be smart to pay via favepay to save your money.
