Our guide to the 10 best poké bowls in London
Say Aloha to some of London's best poké bowls that you can order direct to your office with City Pantry.
It's fair to say that London has a bit of a thing for poké.
Pronounced 'poh-kay', this Japanese-inspired Hawaiian dish popped up in the capital a few years ago and it's been everywhere ever since. And for good reason. Marinated fish served on a bed of seasoned rice, topped with fresh and colourful toppings from avocado to pineapple and more, poké is a satisfying and healthy dish that foodies absolutely love.
If you're looking to get in on the trend, here are some of the best places for poké bowls in London. Plus, all these poké bowls are available to order with City Pantry, so you can skip the lunch rush entirely.
Serving up laid-back LA vibes as well as some of the tastiest Japanese-Hawaiian fusion, Ahi Poké is a name worth knowing in London. That's because their concept is as simple as it gets -
Well-priced, premium produce that's made fresh to order. It's as easy as that. Start off with the Heat Wave poké bowl, one of Ahi Poké's famous signature dishes that's a combination of quinoa, salmon, avocado, kimchee cucumber, and red onion.
Fun, flavoursome, and fantastically tasty, it's guaranteed to have you placing an order for the office time and time again.
If you work in the city, Island Poké is about to become your new go-to lunch spot with City Pantry.
With 6 London locations to choose from, it's never been easier to bring poké to your office. Not only are their flavours authentic and exquisite, but what really sets Island Poké apart is their ingredients. Using only prime, sashimi-grade fish that's delivered the same day it's served, Island Poké serves up some of the freshest fish in the city.
And you can really taste this freshness with their Classic Ahi: a bowl of ahi tuna shoyu with sushi rice and pineapple chilli salsa. It's as good as poké bowls get in London.
Riding the wave of the Hawaiian poké phenomenon which swept its way through New York and LA before landing on British shores, Honi Poké brings full-on Pacific flavour to London.
With a menu crafted by culinary genius Richard De La Cruz - a bona fide Michelin starred chef - they offer more enticing options than you'll know what to do with. There's five signature poké bowls serving up a choice of salmon, tuna, tofu and even flame-torched octopus, which is made-to-order.
Feeling spoilt for choice and not sure which to try first? We suggest Honi Poké's popular Crab Meat poké bowl, which blends crab meat with edamame, chuka wakame, and black fungus, which is so much better than it sounds.
A poké pop-up that has recently found a permanent home in the city, Polu Poké is as famous for their long queues as they are for their delicious fish and rice combos.
One of the first places in London to showcase this Hawaiian delicacy, their menu has all the goodies you'd expect for a poké bowl: like spicy tuna, yuzu salmon and miso tofu. Where Polu Poké stands out though is their extensive range of crunchy toppings and original marinades (think Asian guacamole and yuzu citrus sauce) that you won't find anywhere else.
But the best bit? You can order Polu Poké for your office with City Pantry and skip those queues entirely.
When it comes to being on-trend and tasty, it doesn’t get much better than Tombo.
Seamlessly blending traditional Hawaiian recipes with an infusion of Japanese ingredients, this exotic eatery lets you order amazing blends of these two delicious cuisines. More of a premium option than some of the poké places on this list, every poké bowl at Tombo is served with large, generous pieces of fish and additions like kimchi, tobiko fish roe and Japanese pickles.
And if the diverse menu here has you caught in a tailspin of what to order, keep it simple with Tombo's Tokyo Classic poké bowl. A fresh and delicious mix of salmon sashimi with soy, sesame seeds, and nori.
Tapping into their 'Aloha spirit', Maui Poké serves some of the most authentic Hawaiian poké that London has to offer.
The perfect place for both poké enthusiasts and first-timers, Maui Poké serve tried and tested traditional-style bowls along with unique combinations featuring teriyaki tofu and huli huli chicken. All their poké bowls also come with a specially-created crunch mix, which adds an irresistible contrast of textures in every single bite.
