10 Best Poke Bowl Spots in Toronto

10 Best Poke Bowl Spots in Toronto

If you’re on the hunt for the best poke bowl spots in Toronto, you’re in luck.

Poke is a traditional Hawaiian dish of raw marinated fish, and poke bowls are a modern, more Japanese-inspired take on them.

Poke bowls are typically made with raw fish, various Asian toppings, and rice, but you’ll often find other proteins like shrimp, tofu, and even chicken.

In Toronto, they’re kinda made like deconstructed sushi in a bowl.

It’s a simple, budget-friendly, and moderately-healthy dish (as long as you don’t pack on that mayo) that’s simple and easy to eat anywhere you go.

It’s the perfect picnic dish too – easy to grab as takeout and easy to eat pretty much anywhere!

There are plenty of awesome spots for poke bowls in Toronto, whether you’re looking for the classic Hawaiian dish or the more Japanese-inspired dish.

Here are some of the best places to grab a poke bowl in Toronto!

Poke bowl at Rolltation, Toronto

Rolltation

Rolltation is one of our go-to spots for poke bowls in Toronto because they’re amazing and so conveniently located around the city.

I pretty much always grab the Classic Salmon poke bowl, but I do go for one of their other menu options every now and then if I’m feeling funky.

Rolltation has 7 locations in Toronto, with most of them situated in the downtown core.

My favourite location is probably the Yonge & Dundas restaurant because it’s so chic and spacious!

I usually order ahead for pickup on Ritual, one of my fave Toronto food apps – you can get $10 off your first order using my code!

The Poke Box

The Poke Box is another spot I frequent in Toronto for poke bowls, and I love how generous they are with their portions.

They prepare their ingredients on a daily basis and craft their marinades in small batches to keep everything fresh!

They’ve got more base options than most poke bowl spots in Toronto, and you can choose between sushi rice, mixed greens, a grain blend, or zucchini noodles.

Pokito serves up a mix of traditional and modern poke, and they even have actual Hawaiian-inspired dishes like Kahlua Pork.

The only base option they have for their bowls is black rice, but you can do a half and half option with chopped lettuce.

Their poke bowls are more Hawaiian-inspired, and they’ve even got the Scampi Bowl with Hawaiian garlic shrimp (a must-try dish in Hawaii)!

I’m obsessed with their Maui Bowl, which comes with a combination of salmon and shrimp.

Their downtown location is by Yonge & Wellesley, and they’ve also got a restaurant in Markham!

LOCATION: 563 Yonge St Unit 101, Toronto, ON


Torched salmon and ahi tuna poké bowls from Pokéwave in Toronto

Pokéwave

Pokéwave serves up amazing poke tacos and poke bowls, and my fave thing about this spot is their torched poke.

They only have a few signature poke bowls to choose from, but you can build your own to make the perfect bowl!

You can choose from torched salmon, tuna, shrimp, or tofu, or any of those protein options without the torching.

They’re also very generous with their portions, which is always sweet!

Their poke bowls are not very traditional, so you’ll find more unique ingredient options like sweet potato kelp noodles for the base, chickpeas and vegan feta for toppings, and chimichurri and dill tahini for sauces.

They do have Asian bases, toppings, and sauces if you are looking for something a bit more traditional, though!
