About Time You Tried: Pokē at KERBBy Angelica Malin
Fancy something different for lunch? Then you need to try Pokē at KERB in Kings Cross. A taste of Hawaii in the capital, give it a go for lunch with a tropical flex. Here’s what you need to know:
Pokē is the brain child of three foodie friends, who are passionate about bringing the totally tropical and colourful Hawaiian dish, Pokē, to London. Pokē is a Hawaiian favourite, as yet explored in the UK. Pokē is most likened to a Hawaiian style of sushi – it combines marinated raw fish with an endless possibility of flavours, textures and ingredients.It all starts with a base, such as black rice, which they pair with super fresh fish and homemade pickles and toppings. They offer vegan and vegetarian options and all their dishes are free from gluten and dairy. Clean, healthy and as they say in Hawaii, ono ono!
They serve a wide variety of Pokē. If you’re feeling daring, go for the Tropical Ahi Pokē: tropical coconut sauce, with forbidden rice, avocado and macadamia nuts. The classic is the Salmon Pokē: classic Shoyu sauce, with black rice, pickled cucumber and Ikura. They also do a veggie version: Tofu Pokē in spicy Ponzu sauce, with kelp noodles, seaweed and edamame. You can also build your own bowl, with bases of forbidden rice, kelp noodles or Wakame salad, plus special fish, salmon and more, sauces of classic shoyu, coconut, spicy aioli and great toppings. It’s like a little bit of heaven in a bowl.
