Woohoo! Aloha Pololi! It is the very first Hawaiian Poke shop in Hong Kong. Hiding along Graham street, with a colorful decor and super friendly service, it is so exciting to try out their homemade ahi poke with traditional Hawaiian flavors that are tailored to suit Asian palettes. Since this is my first visit to Pololi, they offered to let me try out some of their recommendations: traditional, ginger shoyu, avocado tuna and wasabi mayo. Each poke bowl comes with a base of your choice, either white rice, brown rice, salad or a mix of two; then the protein.
The traditional shoyu ahi is so fresh, slightly chewy, yet not tough, and spiced up with sliced red onion. But I would definitely go for my most loved second choice, which is also their newest creation, salmon poke with pinenut and shoyu. The deep orange salmon is fatty, moist and have a subtle sweet flavor.
This place is indeed distinctive, especially due to their manifold choices of poke! I can’t wait for my next return to try their musubi too!
