Originality & Simplicity


Poke originated from Hawaii as a snack for fishermen. The recipe was simple: raw tuna, candlenut, seaweed, and limu. Today's poke bowls have derived far from this recipe, incorporating elements from Tex-Mex bowls that offer frivolous toppings, conflicting with the essence of poke bowls. Uncle Sharkii found the sweet spot of the modern poke bowl, offering a healthy balance of tradition and customizability.
