Another poké eatery has launched in Vancouver. Pokérrito (poké + burrito) has opened up at 558 Dunsmuir Street, bringing with it not only fresh and flavourful poké (marinated raw fish dish hailing from Hawaii) but also overstuffed sushi burritos. Yes, that’s right sushi burritos!
Opened by Chef Jung Moon (former sushi chef who comes to Vancouver by way of Korea and Mexico City), Pokérrito offers customizable bliss. Customers who drop by the downtown storefront can design their order in a seaweed-wrapped burrito, bowl, or salad.
Balancing Hawaiian flavours with Japanese techniques and ingredients, Pokérrito has a signature menu of pre-designed options. Alternatively, customers can build their own meal from scratch.
With mix-and-match combinations, Pokérrito’s hand-held sushi burritos and poké bowls are available with fish like torched-flamed tuna and salmon (delivered and cut daily), and fillings/toppings/sides like avocado, edamame, cucumber, pineapple, wasabi, and more.
As for sauces there’s Wasabi-Basil, Creamy Mayo, and our pick the Umami house dressing — light, tangy, and totally addictive. For a little extra crunch, customers can choose to add crispy onion or crushed macadamia nuts to their order.
When asked what visiting patrons can expect to discover when they pop into Pokérrito, Moon says, “the best poké in Vancouver.”
Pokérrito customers are able to grab their food to-go, or pull up a stool to enjoy this bright, modern 15-seater space. Pokérrito is open from 11 am to 9 pm daily.
