The Poké Shop - Take Out Edition

Location: 306 Water Street, Vancouver, Vancouver, BC

Meal:  I ordered the Hawaiian Themed Bowl which has like spicy salmon and spicy scallops but it wasn't really that spicy. 


Service:  Staff was friendly, they gave me a free scoop of guac.

Atmosphere: SO HOT. Serious sauna in here where I took a moment and asked myself, it's so hot in here, is the fish safe to eat. Apparently, they will be putting in air conditioning next year but it's seriously unbearable. 

Bottom line: There isn't really anything wrong besides the fact is really packed. I like the purple grained rice which is a nice touch. The rice is hot though which made me slightly uncomfortable when it was already so hot inside and outside the restaurant. Salmon tasted fine, the scallop was fine. Overall it was a good experience. A bit on the pricey side for a regular size. 

Criticism: Most places are giving bigger portions of proteins for the same or less. Might want to consider the value you're giving customers. 

Out the door price: $15

Repeat: Probably not

Final Rating: 3.5/5
