Got the bowl which comes with rice and a side. I added avocado because I am in California. Those cucumbers are so good! Pickled and slightly sweet. The poke was marinated with sesame oil and has ogo. Does McPoke even have ogo?
Had some leftover rice. So I got 1/3 pound more of the shoyu poke!
Used to work pretty close to Alii. Went there twice for lunch and thought the poke was very good for California. The best poke I’ve had in Cali is at Bristol Farms. I’ve tried the poke at Costco and got a salty batch. Never been to Jus Poke or the place in San Clemente everybody loves.
For some reason I don’t crave poke like when I’m in Hawaii. Is it the local ingredients? Is it the freshly caught fish? Is it that I’m on vacation and usually a couple drinks in by early afternoon?
Next time I go pick up beers at Horus I’m going to stop by that place in San Clemente.
I am a poke at anytime kind of person (and I might be semi-allergic) but if you get a chance try out jus poke. Not only is it great but their plate around 11 dollars which includes two scoops of poke rice and two sides of salad so a great value too.
@JeetKuneBao I tried Alii once and had poke that was way too salty. Never went back but maybe it was just a bad batch.
I finally tried Ali’i Fish Company and enjoyed it much more than Jus Poke. The seasoning is simple, however the quality of ahi tuna is the best I have had in SoCal for poke. The texture is so smooth and luscious. I only got the ahi tuna and would probably stick with that. Also grabbed a ahi katsu burger and thought it tasted darn good and would easily order again.
