New Poke Restaurant Readying for Summer in the International District

The poke craze continues


The International District is getting its very own poke restaurant. GoPoké, planned for the summer, is in the works for 625 S King Street, across the street from Hing Hay Park in a space that has been vacant for more than two years. The restaurant is run by a business called Le Brothers.

Naturally, the menu will be centered around Hawaii's so-hot-right-now raw fish salad, poke. There will be fresh poke bowls with fish like salmon and flown-in-daily Ahi tuna, with accompaniments like seaweed salad, sunomono (cucumber salad), ginger, edamame, and avocado, all served over white rice.

Besides the poke bowls, expect a few creative twists, like this "Spicy Salmon Pokérrito":

Hawaiian desserts will also be on offer, including "shave ice," the Hawaiian version of a snow cone.

Seattle seems to be in the throes of a poke craze, with crowds gathering at places like Hillman City's new Sam Choy's Poke to the Max, the 45th Stop N Shop & Poke Bar, and plenty of established poke favorites.
