Pokérrito is one of the new poké shops opening in Vancouver this year. The poké hype is real and during lunch time, there was a 30 minute line up out the door. Vancouverites are going nuts over the poké.
You choose your creation as a Bowl, Burrito or Salad. You can build your own meal or you can choose their pre-made signature items like the North Shore, Diamond Head, Waikiki, Hanuama or Sunset Beach.
Building your meal
When you get to the counter they first ask you what protein you want and if you want it as a burrito, bowl or salad.
The protein you can choose from are ahi tuna, spicy tuna, albacore tuna, salmon, sockeye salmon, scallop, shrimp and octopus. Some protein choices cost extra.
You can add in as much cucumber, kale, green onion, sweet onion and cilantro.
You can choose 5 from the following list – Sprouts, masago, jalapeño, pineapple, grape-tomatoes, ginger, wasabi, sweet corn, furikake, and chili flakes.
You can choose 2 of the below as your sides. Avocado, edamame, crabmeat, seaweed salad or spicy seaweed salad.
You then can top it off with some sauce – Umami, wasabi-basil, citrus ponzu, sweet chili or creamy mayo.
There’s a lot of items to put into your creation, but it can also be quite confusing to decide what you want.
The most popular item to order is the bowl as you do get a bit more ingredients in it. There is a base or rice either white or brown rice.
It comes in a durable container, so its good to eat in or take out. A lot of people ended up getting take out.
The salad is similar size to the bowl, but with romaine lettuce instead of the rice.
I ordered the burrito and I had added sockeye salmon, avocado, seaweed salad, corn, sprouts, masago, tamago and umami sauce. This is all wrapped up in white rice and seaweed.
Overall, the burrito was good, but next time I would get the bowl just to get a little bit more ingredients. All of us liked all 3 options and is quite healthy. Price is decent too.
