Diced Poke, a Houston-born restaurant dedicated to the world’s trendiest bowl of raw fish, has officially opened its doors in Midtown.
The shop opened its doors at 917 A Winbern Street earlier this week, next door to Sichuan restaurant Spicy Girl, and is now slinging customizable poke bowls, musubi, and sushi burritos. Diners can look forward to bowls like the ponzu chil salmon, topped with fried lotus root, togarashi, spicy mayo, and masago, or a vegan sushi burrito stuffed with tofu, cucumber, avocado, seaweed salad, and daikon.
Diced Poke joins the growing throng of poke restaurants that have opened in Houston in the last couple of years, begging an important question: has Houston hit peak poke? Apparently not, because both local spots (like Moku Bar and Pokeology) and imports (like Pokeworks from New York City) are thriving.
Diced Poke still says that it is in a “soft opening phase” on its Facebook page, and diners can now swing by for a bowl of fish and rice from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
