I’m from Hawai’i, so I know what real poke is (notice no diacritical é). Unfortunately (depending on whose side you’re on) the poke-craze has infiltrated into the NYC restaurant scene. Are any of them authentic? To my knowledge, no. But I still have to give every damn one of them a try to make sure.


Poke Burrito opened up in Astoria maybe a year ago or so? There’s too many to keep track of to be honest. The poke burrito itself was quite good – I did like that there wasn’t as much rice compared to others I’ve had. I just wish there was more… poke?


This was one of their signature bowls with 2 meats – salmon and tuna. The quality of the fish itself was very good (def something they didn’t procure from Key Food around the corner). I just don’t understand the whole bowl concept with such little poke itself. And CORN? Yeah, no.


One of the highlights to my meal was the Hawaiian Sun drinks, and I cannot tell you how much this reminds me of my childhood so goodbye because you’ll never understand!


Poke restaurants” are a fad – let’s call it how it is. This is one of the better ones I’ve been to, but I still can’t imagine this establishment will be there a year or two from now. Enjoy it while you can people.
