The Best Poke Bowl in Toronto

The best poke bowl in Toronto has mastered the Hawaiian raw fish dish that’s become a craze almost as popular as sushi itself. Rice or other bases like zucchini noodles or salad provide the foundation for a medley of fun ingredients not limited to marinated tuna, salmon, or other seafood, but also tofu, veggies, and much more, often up to you.

Here is where to find the best poke bowl in Toronto.

This poke spot on Elizabeth does the simple dish justice. Signature salmon poke bowls include spicy, honey ginger and shoyu options, as well as signature kimchi shrimp, wasabi octopus, and veggie with clementines, avocado, and edamame, or you can dream up your own bowl.

This burgeoning chain with locations on King West and Yorkville names their poke bowls after how you want to feel (like "Hopeful") rather than ingredients like black rice, sweet potato noodles and shaved cabbage topped with salmon, tuna and/or tofu.

This poke shack in Kensington Market butchers, mixes and marinates all their own fish in house. The Big Wave (tuna, jalapeno citrus marinade, and black garlic mayo) and Waimea (salmon and togarashi mayo) are especially popular, and well-portioned, too.

With locations in Little Tokyo and Yonge and Eglinton, this popular mini-chain makes one of the best poke burritos in the city. That doesn’t mean fish fans don’t also go wild for their poke bowls, which come in not only marine varieties but also include cheddar chicken, kimchi beef, and fruity tofu.

You'll really fill up at this poke destination near Queen and Spadina. Massive poke bowls come in pre-concocted combinations but it’s also easy to top them any way you want assembly line style. I especially recommend the sweet and slightly spicy pineapple chow.
