Poke bowls are a hot dish in the food industry.
Okay, not technically hot. But, they’re very popular.
Poke is a traditional Hawaiian dish – it’s a variety of raw fish mixed with rice as a salad.
Montreal’s newest poke bar, Ono Pokii, has opened up in Westmount.
Ono Pokii uses fresh salmon, tuna, grilled octopus, red snapper fish, caviar, and shrimp in a “build your own bowl” set-up. Ono Pokii also offers chicken and tofu alternatives for poke enthusiasts who don’t want seafood and they make their own bubble tea.
Their poke bowls feature sea-wood noodles, black wild rice, and bamboo served in a hefty sized bowl.
The restaurant features an open-style dining room fused with a Hawaiian tone and tropical colours.
The new restaurant also unveiled a 15-person terrace that hangs off Westmount’s Sherbrooke Street, an ideal spot for patrons to survey the constant Westmount foot traffic.
Prices range from $11 to $15 dollars with $0.50 add-ons.
