2nd: ‘Ono Poke Co.
Chef Lawrence Hui was one of the first to bring this popular Hawaiian dish, poke—a raw fish salad—to the prairies of Edmonton. With a myriad of fresh flavours, each feature poke was crafted by Hui based on influences he picked up while touring Maui and learning from its chefs. Uncle Tom’s Surf Poke was named after one of those chefs, and it’s a combo of ahi tuna with fresh onion, cucumber, and sea asparagus with a spicy tobiko aioli.
