Big Tuna Poké Bar: Toronto's first all-poké spot is now open

Jun 13 2016, 4:23 pm

Big Tuna Poké Bar, Toronto’s very first restaurant that’s all about poké, poké, poké is now open for business.

What’s poké, you ask? It’s one of North America’s hottest food trends, and it’s all about the Hawaiian-style raw fish with a variety of sauces and toppings. Gleaming cubes of super-fresh fish are marinated and topped with garnishes like scallion, seaweed, sesame seeds, and beyond. Poké, which basically translates to “chunk,” can be made with all sorts of bases, however in recent years its become synonymous with a cold, fresh, vibrant fish salad…on vacation.

A growing trend in North America in the last year or so, all-poké spots have opened up in New York, Los Angeles, Montreal, and Vancouver, and now with Big Tuna Poké Bar, Toronto is on the list. They have a “build your own bowl” option that lets you put together the perfect poké.

Check out some of their eye-catching poké creations:
