When you’re in the city on your lunch break, it’s often hard to find something fresh and healthy and super tasty at the same time.
Well now you can! In Sydney’s Pitt St Westfield, Finn Poke has just opened, showcasing the Australian love for all things fresh. Poke bowls derive from Hawaii and are known for their “sliced” or “diced” raw fish atop vegetables and rice. In Australia, Poke has deviated a little from the norm, and you can get vegetarian options with tofu or even steak bowls.
Inspired by his Hawaiian upbringing to start Finn Poke, Jem Jacino has brought this store to Australia, adapting it slightly to suit the demographic.
The decor is California cool with its pine wood walls, white tiles, palm trees and neon lights.
Finn Poké’s menu showcases 10 signature dishes and we enjoyed the steak bowl – a bowl of brown rice, topped with slow cooked steak, jus, carrot, pickled onion, green apple and coriander. We also shared the salmon bowl with seaweed, rice and greens.
Our favourite was the Vego, with tofu, pickled shiitake mushrooms, sweet potato, edamame, coriander, corn nuts and shoyu dressing. We thought the flavours here were delicious.
If you’d prefer, you can also make your own colourful creation. Choose your base, whether it be salad, rice or kale, add your ingredients and protein as well as your dressing and you’re ready to go. This winter Finn Poke are also selling a hot vegan Shroom Noodle Soup.
There’s corn nuts for snacks and fresh juices to accompany your meal. Order at the counter and sit at the bar stools or food court. Lovely staff and efficient service.
