Poki: The Hawaiian Sushi

Want something different for an appetizer when you dine at our Japanese restaurant in Lynnwood? Consider some poki. Be it our tuna poki or our salmon poki, this is a fitting prelude to any good Japanese meal.

Poki is the Hawaiian equivalent of sushi. It gets its name from the native Hawaiian word for “to slice”. The dish comes in the form of raw fish that has been cut into small pieces, most typically cubes. These pieces are then seasoned with ingredients that may include soy sauce, ginger, green onions, kukui nut relish, and more. It’s a big favorite for Hawaiian tourists, and has been making its way into restaurants across the country. Try some for yourself at Wild Wasabi today!
