A major food trend nationwide a couple of years ago, poke bowls have become regular sights on metro Detroit’s culinary scene. Ahi Poke and Grill opened in Livonia in 2020 and Poke Doo launched in July 2021 in Garden City, serving the native Hawaiian dishes.
Poke is best described as “sushi in a bowl” for the unfamiliar. The premise is simple: diced raw fish, served atop rice or greens, or rolled burrito-style with customizable fillings flavored with soy or spicy mayo. The bowl is decorated with a variety of garnishes like a scoop of crab, furikake, masago, or avocado, among others. Most bowls are served cold as an appetizer or main course, with just the rice being warm.
