Imagine not having to personally fund your poké addiction for an entire year—perhaps you could finally pay your phone bill on time or even splurge on fancy shampoo.
Westcoast Poké snagged the top title of “Best Poké” in this year’s Golden Plates awards, which are voted on by readers. To show its appreciation, the Vancouver-based poké eatery is making this dream become a reality for three lucky people.
Westcoast Poké’s delicious bowls filled with fresh ingredients—no canned fruit allowed—and scrumptious sauces reeled in the gold medal for the fast-casual restaurant.
All of the sauces and poké bowl toppings offered at the eatery are prepared from scratch at each location. Customers who follow a gluten-free diet can still partake in poké-eating festivities as Westcoast Poke uses tamari instead of soy sauce in many of the chef-created sauces. Those who have yet to discover their love of raw fish can opt for a bowl topped with sous-vide chicken or prawn.
The eatery’s eight Westcoast Classic bowls keep poké enthusiasts coming back for more. The Smoke bowl is a fan favourite and features albacore tuna, burnt miso chili oil, Thai chili, scallion, cucumber, jalapeño, radish, ginger, spicy crab salad, pineapple, and miso ginger soy sauce.
If you wish to make your own creation, ingredients like salmon, kimchi cucumber, avocado, pickled red onion, wasabi aioli sauce, and edamame can be served on top of rice or salad.
The teams at Westcoast Poké repurpose vegetable scraps to ensure that neither location produces any food waste. The eatery also supports sustainability by using compostable packaging and cutlery for dine-in and takeout.
Westcoast Poké makes it easy for hungry customers to order poké for pick-up through its website.
