Apr 19 2021, 2:29 pm

More than just deconstructed sushi, poke is an art form.

Those who’ve tasted the perfect union of fish and marinade will understand when we say that the Hawaiian dish should be ranked as one of the top 10 best dishes in the entire world.

If you’ve never tried poke before, we suggest starting at one of these great poke spots in Seattle.

Unlike typical poke joints in the city, Seattle Fish Guys offer up simple poke bowls of shoyu tuna, salmon, octopus, or scallop with a choice of mac salad, seaweed salad, squid salad, or kimchee on the side. You can even ramp up your order by selecting the off-menu fish sampler: a poke platter that consists of seven types of poke tailored to the number of people sharing it.

With thousands of possible poke combinations at FOB Poke Bar, you could eat a new bowl every day of physical distancing without getting bored. What truly makes FOB stand out above the rest is their rice. Pick between white rice, brown rice, half and half, or special coconut and green tea-infused jasmine rice. If you’re going for something a little less filling, swap the base for tortilla chips, arugula, spring mix, kale, or spinach.
