Poke Bowls and Sushi Burritos finally arrive in Brisbane
Did you know that the phrase "suki" (好き or すき) means "like" in Japanese? Did you know that Suki is also the name of a newly opened restaurant in South Bank, Brisbane? That's right, Brisbane's very first poke bowl and sushi burrito restaurant has finally opened, and I do like it very much.
Suki is a restaurant influenced by Japanese and Mexican culture that offers two signature dishes - poke bowls and sushi burritos. As the name suggests, sushi burritos are a hybrid of both sushi and burritos together. Poke bowls, on the other hand, may be a relatively new concept to many people, as this dish had only started to become widely popular in the past year.
So what exactly is a poke bowl? According to this article, poke bowls originated centuries ago from Hawaii and contains cubed fish (generally raw) mixed with your choice of seasoning, usually on top of a bed of sushi rice. If raw fish is not your cup of tea, worry not as Suki provides you with a "hot protein" range to choose from when constructing your poke bowl or sushi burrito.
Ordering at Suki follows six simple steps. Take a look at their menu to see what they have to offer. Additionally you can look at the menu on their website.
If you are in the South Bank area and want to try out something new and fresh, Suki is definitely a viable option. With cute decor, what seems like endless mix-and-match options, and a commitment to sustainable sourcing, Suki is definitely a place I will return to again.
