My favorite dish: Nemo (tuna) poke bowl

I had the pleasure of checking out and trying the all new Ti Poké, as their guest, with my friend Liz. Le Ti Poké is a poke bowl counter, located inside the Sachika boutique on Boul. St-Laurent (just above Fairmount) in the Mile-End. They only offer 4 pre-set poké bowls, as well as a few entrées. Unlike other poke bowl places where you can pick and choose what you want to in your bowl, Ti Poké has preset bowls for you to choose from, which are all thoughtfully created with the balance of flavours in mind.

With that in mind, we tried the two fish poke bowls that Ti Poké has, the Pablo Ying and the Nemo. My favorite was the Nemo poke bowl – raw tuna, special sweet shoyu sauce, ginger scallion sauce, shiso leaf, fresh mango, Chef Chita red cabbage, fresh cucumber, caramelized onions & seaweed flakes – as I preferred the marinade on the tuna, which was soya based. All of the flavours and ingredients went very well together and created a perfect harmony in my mouth.

I also really like the Pablo Ying poke bowl – raw Atlantic salmon, hot chili pepper mayo, ginger lime ponzu sauce, El Chapo guacamole, Chef Ti crunchy furikake, crispy puffed rice, mama papaye, canelo japapenos & fresh watermelon radish. I found the big difference with this poke bowl was that the fish (salmon to be more specific) had a much more subtle marinade and flavours. I really liked the combination of ingredients, especially the papaye and watermelon radish, which aren’t very common poke bowl ingredients. The dollop of smashed avocado with red chili flakes was nice too (who doesn’t love the combination of salmon and avocado?). In terms of sauces, we added some of the hot chili pepper mayo and the sweet shoyu sauce, which were both delish.

We had a great lunch at Ti Poké and very much enjoyed their poke bowls. I really liked that the poke counter was inside a boutique, which was original and different.
