Poké bowls have seen a recent spike of interest from the public with their use of ‘good for you’ proteins and super food ingredients. Having heard about the massive success of the concept in the US, owners Eddie Isik and Leon McNiece visited the States to learn more about the trend. The trip triggered the idea to bring the SUKI brand to life, which has been under development for the last 18 months.
Meaning to section, cut or slice and pronounced ‘po-keh’, poké is traditionally known as a fish salad originating from the Aloha state. The on-trend food started off with very humble beginnings as a simple dish which included scraps of reef fish, seaweed and crushed kukui nuts and sea salt.
It allows you to customize your bowl with seven base choices, eight types of fish, and more than 15 toppings with ingredients prepared fresh daily. Ordering a bowl or burrito at SUKI is a six-step process, where you select your base, proteins, sauces, vegetable, then garnishes. For those who can’t decide, customers can select from one of SUKI’s signature pre-made bowls or burritos.
For regulars, SUKI will soon be launching a loyalty program and will be open seven days a week, from 11am til late.
