What is Hawaiian cuisine "Poke" and Poke Saigon started
Poke (Chinese translation for Hawaiian rice bowl) is an American Hawaiian cuisine that uses marinated raw fish, cold dishes, seaweed, etc. to cover the rice. As Japanese immigrants and tourists love Hawaii, Japanese food culture also affects the development of Poke. Other seafood and edamame are added, and the seasonings also include light soy sauce, grapefruit vinegar, and ginger, which make this dish more fresh and refreshing.

Poke Saigon ordering method and dining experience sharing
There are not many seats in the shop. It is recommended that you avoid the peak dining time and reduce the waiting time. There are places both inside and outside. However, children and boys are afraid of heat. We still choose indoor air-conditioned seats.Once you find the location, you can order food at the counter.First of all, first confirm the amount you want. A bowl of Poke is priced at 15 VND (about 195 NT dollars), while a large serving is 30 VND. Usually, you order a regular portion and a glass of drink to be full!
Next is to choose rice. There are three options of sushi rice, brown rice and salad. The clerk is very fluent in English and will guide you to choose the ingredients and sauces for the rice bowl. He said that these ingredients are cooked in the central kitchen and delivered to the branch. They are all on the same day. It was made on-site and explained how to match the taste. So most of my bowl is to choose the ingredients I like and recommend it to the clerk. Finally, I help Wendy Burger and his son to order coconut juice and watermelon juice to prepare to enjoy the food.
The first bite is really amazing. As mentioned above, it’s refreshing and not greasy. It’s suitable for summer main meals. With various vegetables, seafood, algae and fruits, the calorie control and full nutrition are very suitable for bringing children to dinner. At this price, In terms of the richness of ingredients, taste and service, it is no wonder that Poke Saigon can defeat its rivals in many gourmet restaurants and capture the appetite and praise of tourists from all over the world.
