Poke seems to be the latest food trend in San Diego – there are suddenly so many restaurants featuring poke opening up all over the place! One of the highly-anticipated stores is Pokirrito, by the same owner as RakiRaki. It took over A Cafe’s former spot in the same plaza, and recently soft opened. After seeing the lines out the door and hearing good reviews from friends, we decided to go check it out.
The interior has been completely remodeled from the old A Cafe days; it looks sleek and modern (read: hipster). S said that the food preparation counter and high tables reminded him of Chipotle… haha.
The menu consists of oversized sushi-roll-style burritos (“pokirritos”) and DIY poke bowls. The burritos were between $10-$12, depending on if it included raw fish. The poke bowls come in two sizes, regular or large, and you can choose the type of rice/base, fish, and toppings.
