Hawaiian food trend hits Yangon

Poké (pronounced “POH-keh”), a Hawaiian staple of raw diced fish tossed with rice, vegetables, and sauces has come to Yangon.

The healthy dish is not restricted to containing fish at the Poké Bar which opened three weeks ago opposite the new Krispy Kreme at Bahan Township’s Time Link.

The small, colorful joint fuses traditional and modern tastes in a menu that offers sets or ‘make-your-own’ Poké options.

Owner Daniel Maung who lives in the US has eight sushi franchises in Chicago. He returned to his birthplace of Myanmar to bring Yangon its first Poké eatery, which using his graphic design skills he has decorated in fresh blue and animal stencils.

Poké bowls are available with chicken (5,500 kyats), shrimp (6,500 kyats), salmon (9,500 kyats), tuna (10,500 kyats) and tofu (4,500 kyats) along with various sauces such as citrus, spicy aioli, kimchi, volcano (spicier than spicy), sweet teriyaki, sesame ginger and wasabi.

Plus the menu comes with a nutrition guide to calculate the calories, which are modest.
