Wondering about the best poke bowl restaurants for delivery? Or perhaps you’re just wondering what poke is to start with. Until recently, poke bowls were Hawaii’s best kept secret. Named for the Hawaiian word for ‘slice’, this dish is comprised of a bed of rice topped with raw fish chunks, vegetables, and mouth-watering sauces. A delicious Polynesian alternative to the ever-popular sushi, it’s no surprise that poke has taken the world by storm. Singapore is packed with poke bowl restaurants for delivery these days-here’s a selection of some of our favourites.
Rollie Olie is just one of the restaurants that realised sushi and poke bowls go hand in hand, which is why their menu includes a range of both. They have five crisp and fresh poke bowls to choose from, but our favourite is the colourful Yuzu Bliss-a unique combination of salmon, tuna, and fruits like roselle apple, orange, and avocado. If you’re looking for something to ease the chill this winter, Rollie Olie also has two warm bowls available: one with crispy fried chicken and one with grilled eel. There are even poke boats on the menu-poke ingredients stuffed into avocado halves.
Not a fan of raw fish? Don’t worry-you can enjoy vegan poke at Poke Theory. The Avocado Poke Bowl is completely free from fish and meat, combining seasoned avocado with tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots and more. They also serve traditional poke bowls with salmon and tuna, and the spicy garlic and mayo sauces are to die for. Add a side of their Barra-Ceviche too, made with cured, locally caught barramundi in a zesty citrus marinade.
To quote the classic Hawaii-centred animation Lilo & Stitch, “ohana means family”. So, if you’re looking for somewhere to share poke with your loved ones, try Ohana Poke. This restaurant is perfect for families because you can build your own bowl, ensuring everyone gets a taste of what they like. Alongside typical raw fish, Ohana also offers chicken, duck, and tofu mushroom as protein options. Depending on the size of poke you order, you can then add four to six toppings of your choice and a superfood.
Before poke was big in Singapore, it was huge in California. The menu at Sweetfish Poke is inspired by some of the sunshine state’s favourite varieties. If you love Korean cuisine, try the Hawaiian-Asian fusion Kimchi Poke Bowl, pairing octopus or tuna with kimchi, spring onions, and roe. The drinks here are also worth a mention-particularly the Iced Honey drink with fresh Tahitian lime juice.
The final restaurant on our list is Poke Doke. Their titular menu item, the Poke Doke bowl, adds a silky onsen egg and almonds to bring nutty and creamy notes to the dish. They also cater to vegetarians with a Shiitake Tofu Poke bowl. If none of the four pre-set bowls take your fancy, you can also build your own.
