Pokérrito

Standard

Looking for a West Coast treat? My go-to for a quick and healthy lunch snack is the #1 Poké Bowl in Vancouver! Living in Vancouver we have lots of options but a fav of mine has always been Pokérrito! I love that they choose Ocean Wise seafood, and they have some of the most delicious fish to choose from with their Hawaiian Poké with a Japanese twist! Never tried a Poké bowl or Pokérrito Burrito? Your missing out!

With 2 locations to choose from in the Dowtown core and a wide range of delicious items. I went for the Large build your own Bowl with Sockeye Salmon, Ahi Tuna and Spicy Tuna plus all the extras like Crab Meat, Radish, Tamago and Furikake with Wasabli Basil and Umami sauce. Mmmm drool.

Visit them at 558 Dunsmuir or 991 Hornby in Vancouver!
