Poke is cropping up all over London, but Polu Poke is quite literally, the original gangster poke trader in the city! The first to hit us 5 years ago, they started life as a street food trader and have most recently opened up permanent digs near Liverpool Street.
Hitting the perfect balance of fish, toppings and rice is a tough job but Polu Poke manage it effortlessly. A generous amount of fish, house pickles, marinade and brown sushi rice.
My tuna bowl had a spicy ginger marinade with some guacamole, kelp slaw, furikake (Japanese seasoning) and was possibly one of the best bowls if poke I've had in London.
