Sweetfin Poké Restaurant Review

: Sweetfin Poké in Santa Monica puts a California twist on poké, the Hawaiian raw fish dish. The concept at this counter-service restaurant is simple. Order one of the signature bowls --- mango albacore and spicy yuzu salmon are both good choices --- or create your own by choosing the fish (delivered daily to ensure freshness) and sauce to go with your base. We like all three of the options for bases: bamboo rice (short-grain rice milled with bamboo chlorophyll for extra vitamin B), kelp noodle-cucumber slaw and citrus-kale salad. All bowls come with the “Poké Basics” (scallions, white and black sesame seeds and salt), but guests can also choose from a lengthy list of add-ons ranging from pickled shiitake mushrooms to wasabi peas to chile marinated oranges. Vegetarians will be happy with the poké composed of sweet potato, carrots, avocado, cucumber, serrano and ponzu-lime sauce. Every day the kitchen creates different infused iced teas and coconut waters in flavors such as guava green tea. You may finish with the very addictive popcorn --- also made daily --- dipped in white chocolate and rolled in black sesame seeds and coconut shavings. Everything on the menu is gluten free, and dairy free except for the popcorn. Take your meal to go or enjoy it at one of the counter seats or tables in the dining area. Other locations.
