THE POKE CRAZE
Bearing a name drastically similar to the Nintendo game that took the globe by storm last year, the poke (poh-kay) bowl is quickly making its way into the list of top food fads in KL. Traditionally served as an appetiser in Hawaii, a poke dish consists of raw fish (commonly salmon or yellowfin tuna) marinated in soy sauce, accompanied with various toppings (avocado, furikake, eggs, vegetables), drizzled with a special sauce, and serve on a bed of rice. Fancy a shot at customising your own? Try one of these poke-centric restaurants below.
This restaurant is the pioneer of poke bowls in Malaysia. The Fish Bowl opened its doors to the public mid-2016. Since then, dozens of poke shops started sprouting around Klang Valley as the trend slowly but surely took the town by storm. Pro tip: Make use of The Fish Bowl’s unlimited amount of toppings – be sure to pile on heaps of furikake, seaweed flakes, fried garlic chips and sesame seeds.
