North Poke

North Poke

This poke shack with locations in Kensington Market and on Adelaide cuts, mixes, and marinated all their own fish in house. Owned by the same people behind Sukoshi Mart, the shop offers meals like the Aloha bowl, which comes with butterfish and onion marinade.

Head to multiple locations of this restaurant for satisfying mixes of rice and seafood. Their Angry Shrimp bowl is particularly popular, with spicy shrimp, pineapples, sesame seeds and masago.


Lawai'a Poke

Lawai'a Poke

This takeout spot on King West is a popular lunchtime destination for chopped Hawaiian fish atop rice, or if you prefer, zucchini noodles. These guys are a great option even if you’re looking for a vegan or gluten-free meal.

Poke Box

Poke Box

Get a custom poke box at this miniscule shop in the Financial District. Their bases are a bit more extensive than others (you can get sushi rice, grain blend, spring mix or zucchini noodles) which is good if you’re getting bored of the same old order.


Umami Poke

Umami Poke

Flavours get a boost from some Korean- and Middle Eastern-inspired flavours at this Yonge and St. Clair restaurant. It’s all about build your own bowls here, with the option of quinoa to go with tahini sauce or Korean chili garlic.


Hoki Poke

Hoki Poke

Just steps from Yonge and Wellesley is this surprisingly cozy spot to dine on poke bowls. They have ten different signature bowls for you to choose from, or you can make your own with ahi tuna, salmon, grilled chicken, or shrimp.

Ono Poke Bar

Ono Poke Bar

More like ‘oh yes’ at this poke bar in Liberty Village. It’’s not cheap here, but you probably won’t find another spot serving up bowls with decadent toppings like torched salmon, steak with torched cheese, or eel with furikake.


Calii Love

Calii Love

This poke staple with multiple locations is sort of a health hub-meets-celebrity hotspot. Either way, they’re one of the downtown favourites for bowls named Hopeful and Confident, and it’s fun to hear the servers yell out how you’re “feeling”.

Poke Eats

Poke Eats

Tucked away inside Emerald Park plaza near Yonge and Sheppard is this small bar serving up BYOBs. Head downstairs for signatures that have names like It’s Lit, which uses black sushi rice, and Kale Machine, which subs out rice for kale instead.
