It’s nearing summer and the heat is already ramping up! Have you been searching for places to dine where the food isn’t piping hot? We’ve been – and it’s a bit of an odd request, given Seattle’s usual weather and typically chilly climate.
But we’ve found a hot craze that’s right up summer’s alley. Poke, a Hawaiian dish, translates to “fish salad,” which is served with raw fish over rice or salad. Though it’s traditionally served as an appetizer, eating it as the entre is perfectly normal. So what awesome poke places can be found around Seattle?
The 45th Stop N Shop & Poke Bar is located in Wallingford off, well, North 45th Street. This stop is perfect for a bite to eat but be prepared to wait. Many reviewers and patrons have noted lines that exit the building and continue down the street! It must be good…
In Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood, you’ll find FOB Poke Bar, a modernly designed and aesthetically pleasing poke bar creating “culinary masterpieces” from natural and fresh ingredients.
With other 500 well-regarded reviews, goPoke Seattle churns passion and creativity and produces poke bowls of every style, variety, and colorful flavors. Whether their creations or your own, you’ll enjoy their sweet tango tuna or classic salmon.
In the north end, Hiroshi’s Poke is just off “the Ave” in the University District. Their quaint shop offers an intimate gathering space, with an industrial deco inside. Tons of sides and poke options!
Our last stop on this poke ride is Poke Lover in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood, just off Market Street. With cute style, their décor meshes Seattle’s concrete, industrial feel, with floral patterns and twisted iron tables. And their poke isn’t shabby either, plus you’ll enjoy complimentary miso soup!
Poke is so popular right now, there is bound to be one in or near the neighborhood you are planning on hanging out in. What are your favorite poke places in the Seattle area?
