8 Places To Get Your Poke Bowl Fix

There’s no denying it anymore: the poke wave has hit Malaysia and claimed thousands of converts in the aftermath of its tsunami-like popularity. Pronounced “poh-kay”, the traditional Hawaiian dish typically consists of raw fish cubes and succulent veggies over a bed of rice with some sauce.
 

Check out our list of top nine places you can visit to satisfy your poke fix.


1. Rubberduck

Confession: Rubberduck has long been our favourite go-to spot for healthy food that tastes great, but it’s definitely gone up in our rankings after Aloha Cycle Club opened nearby. A gut-busting workout and a nutrition-packed post-workout snack? Sign us up!

2. Paper Fish

Paperfish may have shot to fame when it won the Tiffin Throwdown: Battle of The Poke Bowls at Urbanscapes 2017, but did you know that it’s also co-founded by previous Men’s Health cover guy Dennis Yin? Be sure to check out their unique seasonal releases, like the sambal shrimp poke bowl.

3. The Fish Bowl

The Fish Bowl first introduced Malaysians to poke bowls in late 2016, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. Check out their outlets in Bandar Sunway and 1Utama Shopping Centre.

4. Poke Bear

The newcomer to Malaysia’s poke scene offers visitors two interesting choices: get your poke fix in the standard bowl – or opt for a wrap instead. The Vegan Supreme on the menu is a great alternative if you’re going green.

6. Kurin

Just because you’re a busy guy who’s always on the go doesn’t mean you can’t eat healthy. Take advantage of Kurin’s delivery services so you can stick to a clean, nutritious diet. Their first actual outlet is slated to open around mid-August 2017 in Nu Sentral.

7. Lush Bowl

Okay, so Lush Bowl doesn’t make the traditional poke bowls per se. Instead, they specialise in gastronomic sashimi bowl creations that are a far cry from your traditional sashimi donburi, which definitely caught our attention.

8. Eatomo Food Company

Don’t be fooled by the fact that Eatomo only has two poke bowls on the menu – they pride themselves on offering visitors with seafood that’s fresh and succulent. If you’re dining with friends who haven’t subscribed to the way of the poke, they have an awesome menu featuring a host of delectable Japanese dishes.
