Health cafe and eatery Short Grain has announced that it will soon open a new storefront called Tidal Poke Co. The cafe first tested its new poke bowl concept during this summer’s Project Eats festival.
Poke (pronounced POH-keh) is a Hawaiian dish usually consisting of raw, cubed fish served with a variety of seasonings. As The Huffington Post puts it, think of it as deconstructed sushi. Naturally, there are many variations from the classic, but generally the protein-packed bowls are supposed to be healthy, so it’s no surprise to see Short Grain expand in that direction.
