Hunting for rice bowls

Hunter introduces Bangkokians to poke

 

For those of you familiar with poke, you'll know that this rice bowl trend has been fast and hard-hitting the East and West Coast of the US, as well as Australia. It's no surprise that this healthy option is quickly becoming the next big thing. After all -- what with the rise of clean-eating and the guilt-trips that we continue to inflict on ourselves every time we see those skinny b**ches in yoga pants -- this certainly makes sense.

If the sound of poke is completely alien to you -- and btw it's pronounced "poh-keh", so don't go around saying you're craving a good "poke" otherwise who knows what might come flying your way -- then read on. Poke bowls are a traditional Hawaiian dish comprised of rice and bite-sized pieces of raw fish which have been marinated in some sort of sauce. In a way, it is very much like the Japanese donburi, with poke bowls being somewhat more adventurous with their ingredients and taste. They're fresh, fun and aren't afraid of playing with flavours.

The co-owners of Hunter are avid travellers who fell in love with the poke they tried in the States. Their idea was to introduce Bangkokians to this style of healthy raw food that doesn't skimp on quality, while offering it at an affordable price too.

We tried two of their pokes and absolutely loved The classic (B159 for small; B219 for medium; B289 for large). The Japanese rice was cooked beautifully with the right amount of vinegar; the salmon, avocado, mango and pomelo balanced each other out and added some sweetness to the sour. To top it off, the fried shallots adds a nice crunch while the spicy mayonnaise bound it all together nicely.

Another go-to option would be the Sexy salmon (B139 for small; B189 for medium; B249 for large). It's perfect for those who want a simple poke that packs all the essential ingredients like marinated salmon, tamagoyaki, edamame, fish roe and special shoyu sauce.

Craving something a little sweet? Their Acai bowl (B199) is delicious and super healthy. It's a cold treat packed with acai, banana, blackberry, blueberry, pineapple, coconut water and homemade granola.

Having only been open for a month, expect to see lots more to be added to their menu. But right now we're really enjoying what's already on offer, especially the option to build your own bowl.

Hunter is open Mon-Fri 11am-7pm, Sat 11:30am-3pm and is located at Interchange 21, B1/F. For more information, visit www.fb.com/hunterpoke.th. Also available on Foodpanda.
