Creating a vegan version of our signature ahi tuna bowl was such an exciting challenge for us. We set out to make a damn delicious plant-based alternative because, firstly, those who choose to be vegan really don’t deserve to miss out on our heaven-sent food while they’re trying to save the world. And secondly, so that even our regular customers who aren’t vegan might be tempted to choose this once in a while – and we can all share the load of contributing towards a better future for our planet.
Though traditional poké all started with raw fish, the word ‘poké’ itself means to dice or slice and really that can apply to anything, whether to vegetables, meat or fish. The true essence of Island Poké is that fresh, vibrant tropical taste present in many types of food and other dishes. But it was quite some test to figure out just how to create a natural, plant-based version of our marinated tuna sashimi with the same look, taste and texture.
