Bangkok now has a restaurant dedicated to poke.
At Hunter Poke a group of Los Angeles alumni bring one of America’s hottest food trends to Bangkok.
This restaurant specializes in poke, an Hawaiian raw fish salad, which is a big deal in New York and the US West Coast right now.
Poke bowls see raw fish salad perched atop Japanese rice, kind of like a sushi rice bowl. Here, they offer their own signature options to suit Thai tastes, like “Bangkok Dangerous” (barramundi, cucumber, guava, Asian pear, fried whitebait, fried shallots and Thai seafood sauce, from B119) and “The Classic” (salmon, mango, pomelo, avocado, fried shallots, spicy mayo and house-special shoyu, from B159). You can also build you own bowl.
To complete the American health-conscious trend, they also offer acai (from B199) and pitaya (from B129) smoothie bowls and cold-pressed juices (B90).
