Description

Part of Seattle’s second wave of food trucks to go brick and mortar, the teal and pink pokemobile backed by prominent Hawaii chef Sam Choy has now spawned four restaurants in two states, including a brand new location along Kirkland's waterfront. The original, cleanly appointed outpost on Rainier Ave serves a bevy of marinated raw fish salads—on rice, over greens, and stuffed in wraps or even tacos. Otherwise, this chill counter-service spot tends toward the meaty, scooping rice and mac salad alongside teriyaki short ribs, pork belly, and garlicky fried chicken. Poke purists can sneer all they want at the happy hour poke nachos, or reconstructed musubi that resemble gonzo flair–drenched Americanized sushi rolls—but they’re damn good fun with a cold beer.
