If it seems like poke is taking over Houston, that’s because it is. Following yesterday’s news that Moku Bar was now serving the Hawaiian raw fish dish inside Conservatory, a new suburban poke shop has arrived.
Yesterday, Hawaiian Poke Co. officially opened its doors at 4334 FM 2920 inside the Howie’s Tiki shopping center in Spring. The restaurant serves up a number of creative takes on classic poke, alongside more playful options like poke-topped fries, musubi, and pork steam buns. For those who aren’t into raw fish, burgers and salads will also be on offer.
Hawaiian Poke Co. is just the latest of a ridiculous number of new poke options in and around Houston, including Pokeology, Ono Poke, Pokeworks, North Shore Poke Co, and Poku Poke, along with forthcoming spots like California-based chain Poke Bar. Some of the new poke-focused eateries are even planning expansion, like Pokeology’s soon-to-open second location in the Heights.
Hawaiian Poke Co. will host a grand opening celebration on Friday and Saturday, complete with 50% off all the food on the menu. Rejoice, suburbanites — you no longer have to drive inside the loop for a killer bowl of poke.
