Poke Bowl Rice @ Puchong

The Hawaiian-inspired poke bowl finally makes its way to Malaysia: Poke Rice Bowl ('poke' is Hawaiian for slice or cut) is one of the pioneering local purveyors of this pleasure - warm steamed rice topped with cubed raw salmon & your choice of fresh veggies & sauces, such as broccoli, corn, carrots & cauliflower with togarashi, shoyu & sriracha (RM19.90). A tasty, balanced meal, basically a rice bowl for sashimi & salad devotees; this might remind some customers of the chirashi mixed-fish bowls served at Japanese restaurants, but there are key differences - the type of rice, the way the fish is cut, the focus on solely one type of fish per bowl, & the accompaniments. Ultimately, it whets our appetite for more poke bowls that'll pop up in KL soon.

  1. The only poke I know is the one in Facebook, I poke you, you poke me back. Hehehehehe! Oh? Hawaiian for slice and cut, eh?

    Aduh! Leave the slippers and shoes outside - that day they posted a series of pictures on Facebook (I hear they're on Instagram too) of one guy from the rural areas here boarding a plane - he took off his slippers and left them at the bottom of the stairs when he boarded and when he arrived, he came down the stairs and went round and round looking for his slippers. Bet there's no truth in the whole thing but it was kind of funny.

    1. The Yum List: good question ... i'm not sure, but they've just started, and i think they're still fine-tuning those issues ... this container could have been for takeaway purposes ;)
