Poke is a Hawaiian raw fish salad served as a snack. Pokestuf provides the dish as a healthy meal and conveys a strong mix of Hawaiian and Japan style in their food. Every morning, wholesale distributors throughout Los Angeles (L.A.) deliver their sushi grade fish and the staffs portion the amount off to make sure the quality is controlled. It is difficult to find inexpensive meals with excellence in L.A.
“Originally the owner thought of this idea to provide fresh fish at an affordable cost. Here, you can get a full bowl with fresh fish and vegetables affordable,” said the current owner.
The pricing for a regular sized bowl is $9.50 while a large is $12.75; given that the cost is not the cheapest, it is definitely reasonable. Customers are able to pick out their base, types of fish, flavors, and toppings. Their menu consists of three different types of fish – ahi, salmon, and albacore (or spicy tuna for additional price), and eight unique flavors ranging from sweet and spicy to citrus. With over ten toppings free of charge, they have the choice of adding or removing each item.
The most popular flavors are lemongrass ponzu and sriracha mayo. No matter the type of sauce, the flavor ties up the whole bowl along with the rice, noodles, or greens. Fried onion as a topping is recommended, because the strong crunchy flavor balances out the fish and even brings texture to the dish when eaten with the base of white or brown rice, soba noodles, or mixed greens.
Pokestuf usually targets young adults and teenagers for their student-friendly atmosphere. Customers can enjoy their time while listening to music and playing games like Jenga, Connect 4, and Cards Against Humanity that are already provided.
“Fresh food. Fresh fish. At affordable prices,” said the owner.
