Poke Theory

Dawson Tan

Time Out says

The homegrown Poké bowl brand comes home to Telok Ayer where it first sprouted in 2016. Now, with 14 outlets islandwide, Poke Theory opens its largest-ever outlet along the buzzy Telok Ayer Road, boasting 104 seats. It takes over the space of the now-defunct Park Bench Deli. While the popular raw fish and rice combination still headlines the value-for-money offerings (from $9.90), this new outlet will debut inventive flavours (from $11.90) that riff on beloved local dishes such as Samsui ginger chicken and vegan tempeh.

The new location also features a sauce bar that allows diners to enjoy a free-flowing range of complimentary sauces. For the uninitiated, Poke Theory allows you to customise your own bowl of raw fish with rice in two sizes: small (five toppings) or regular (seven toppings) – and lets you choose between tuna or salmon over sushi rice, brown rice, lemon herb quinoa or romaine lettuce. And if you’re new to this Hawaiian dish then try its original shoyu tuna – its cubes of tuna seasoned lightly in Japanese soy sauce and sesame.

Then, jazz up your bowl with 18 different toppings including furikake, pineapple, cherry tomato and nori flakes. Or drop a couple more dollars and you can get premium add-ons such as kimchi ($1), crispy salmon skin ($2) or kale chips ($2). And vegans, there’s a bowl you can indulge in, too. Opt for the avocado poké which mixes chunks of avocado and tomato doused in its homemade shoyu dressing.
