Wise Fish Poke opened its doors in early 2016 and I had the pleasure of dropping by last week. It was opened by two friends and built on their love of the classic Hawaiian dish. The space itself if your typical fast-casual setup. It’s white, clean, there are some tables and chairs if you’d like to stay, or grab-n-go. With so much focus on health food today, they have created a concept where you can get something great for you, fast, at a decent price.
The menu was written keeping in mind sustainability and responsibly-sourced seafood. You can design your own poke bowl or choose from their suggested combinations. Each bowl is served on your choice of either white or brown rice, mixed greens, or zucchini noodles. You can then choose from tuna, crab salad, and salmon. Then dress up your bowl with great toppings like hijiki seaweed, wasabi-avocado cream, tobiko, and citrus-ponzu sauce. Everything is crazy fresh and the perfect temperature. They have rotating specials as well so we grabbed the insanely addicting spicy tuna nachos. They were drowning in spicy mayo and jalapenos; I still dream of them. This is the kind of food that makes you feel good. Here’s what we had:

H A W A I I S T Y L E ahi tuna, sweet onion, hijiki, scallion, classic sauce
