Island Poké begins expansion with launch of second London site

Following the successful opening of Island Poké on Kingly Street in Soho, founder James Porter and his team have secured their second site in Broadgate Circle. New offerings include their Poké Nachos, Poké Tacos and a special bowl from Yum Bun founder Lisa Meyer.

Doors will open Monday 31 July 2017. From midday they will be offering Poké bowls for £1 on Monday 31 July and Tuesday 1 August only.

Poké, pronounced po-keh, is a mix of raw cubes of fresh fish with a soy-based dressing, served in a bowl with steamed rice and tasty garnishes. Customers are invited to enjoy their Poke´ on the swinging seats overlooking Broadgate Circle, allowing the fresh taste of Poke´ to transport them to sunny Hawaiian shores.

Open for breakfast, they will be serving Hawaiian Kona Coffee with a variety of dishes including Overnight Apple & Cinnamon Oats, Tropical Chia Pots, Salmon & Yuzu Cream Cheese Rolls and Cinnamon Buns.

Lunch will offer a choice between three house Poke´ bowls or a build your own besPoke´ bowl. Come the afternoon the offering in Broadgate Circle will flip to Hawaiian Beers, a chilled glass of wine or one of their house brand Pacific G&T’s. The perfect tonic to match with their new Poké Nachos and Poké Tacos.

Island Poké will launch their new Bowl Of The Month initiative with Yum Bun founder Lisa Meyer that will run for the whole of August.

Porter trained under a former Nobu sushi chef, he started trading the concept in street-food residency Little Feast, exhibition openings and planned office drops before opening the permanent site on Kingly Street with the backing of White Rabbit Fund and operational support of GoodLife Projects.
