7 Best Poké Bowl Spots in Toronto

7 Best Poké Bowl Spots in Toronto

There are plenty of awesome spots for poké bowls in Toronto.

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 pick up and easy to eat pretty much anywhere!

Poké is a traditional Hawaiian dish of raw marinated fish, and poké bowls are a modern take on them.

Poké 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.

I often make poké bowls myself at home, but there are some ingredients I can’t be bothered to buy for myself, or flavours I just can’t replicate.

Here are some of the best places to get poké bowls in Toronto!

Be sure to also follow me on Instagram and TikTok – I share a lot more content on those platforms that don’t make it to the blog!

Best poké bowls spots in Toronto

Rolltation

Rolltation is pretty much my go-to spot for poké bowls in Toronto because they’re amazing and so conveniently located around the city.

They have 6 locations in Toronto, and my favourite is probably the Yonge & Dundas restaurant because it’s so chic and spacious.

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

You can choose between their signature poké bowls or build your own, and they also serve up sushi burritos, hot bowls, and salads.

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

LOCATION: Various locations

Price Range: $9.99-$14.59 for poké bowls

The Poké Box

The Poké Box is another spot I frequent in Toronto for poké bowls.

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 poké bowl spots in Toronto, and you can choose between sushi rice, mixed greens, a grain blend, or zucchini noodles.

I usually grab the Lava Blaze or the Poké Box bowls, depending on what I’m feeling that day.

They’re pretty generous with their portions, so Adam and I usually both grab the regular size and he helps me finish the rest of my bowl!

Poké Guys

Poké Guys is another incredible spot for poké bowls in Toronto, and you’ll find their downtown location near the Eaton Centre.

You can choose between their signature bowls or build your own, and they have a nice selection of marinated raw tuna and salmon to choose from.

I love that they’re super generous with the sashimi, alongside all the other toppings in their bowls.

Their Cali bowl is my fave – it features both salmon and tuna!

Poké Guys also makes my absolute fave sauces out of all these poké spots in Toronto.

They also have locations in the GTA in both Markham and Vaughan!

LOCATION: 112 Elizabeth St. Unit 1, Toronto, ON

Price Range: $12.50-$16.50 for poké bowls


Torched salmon and ahi tuna poké bowls from Pokéwave in Toronto

Pokéwave

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

They only have a few signature poké 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!

They also have a location in Markham, right across from the Markham Civic Centre (near Downtown Markham).

LOCATION: 514 Yonge St, Toronto, ON
