Toronto is getting a Hawaiian poke restaurant

One of the hottest food trends of the year south of the border is finally ready to burst onto the Toronto restaurant scene later this summer with the opening of Toronto's first Hawaiian poke shop - North Poke.

The cozy takeout joint with a smattering of tables will offer customizable poke bowls with a base of white or brown rice, salad or zucchini topped with chunks of fresh fish such as tuna, salmon, octopus, crab and shrimp. There will also be tofu option for vegetarians.

Garnish options will include edamame, green onions, seaweed salad, mango, jalapeno, daikon and a selection of sauces.

The owners are also promising to serve Hawaiian shaved ice during the summer months.

Poke isn't entirely new to Toronto - you can currently order it at Miss Thing's - but a dedicated restaurant for poke bowls will be a first and can't come soon enough.

The location is still being finalized but we're told it's likely to be somewhere in Little Italy.
