Honi Poké to double up with second site opening this week
Hawaiian poké restaurant Honi Poké is opening its second site this spring after settling on a site in the City.

Located on Fenchurch Street, the new site will open on 7 March offering both eat-in and take-away options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The menu, designed by executive chef Richard De La Cruz, formerly of three Michelin-starred restaurant Quique Dacosta in Spain’s Alicante, will feature four signature poke bowls alongside the option for diners to customize their bowls themselves.

Starting at £7, the poké bowls comprise either sushi rice, brown rice or vegetable slaw topped with a choice of either flame-torched octopus; tuna; salmon; teriyaki chicken; or tofu.

Additional toppings include sunomono cucumber; edamame; wasabi peas; nori seaweed; avocado; kimchi; salty mango; and ginger chucka wakame.

The bowls are dressed with sauces including ahi sauce; chilli garlic; and ginger soy before being garnished with red chilli; spring onion; coriander; chive; and crunchy onion.

The breakfast menu includes fresh smoothies and coffees served from 7.30am alongside South American tapioca bread made with cheese and gluten-free flour; and scrambled or poached eggs on toast with cream cheese and avocado, or smoked salmon and dill.

The 65-cover site will feature similar interior design to its Dean Street sister site, including mint green pendant lighting and colourful neon signage.

“Since opening our debut site on Soho’s Dean Street this time last year, we have developed a fantastic following and are incredibly excited to take the next step on our journey,” says co-founder Vladimir Martynov.

“Fenchurch is a much larger site, allowing us to trial breakfast and serve alcohol to the city crowd on our doorstep.”

London's restaurant scene is now home to a number of poké players, many of which are on the expansion trail.

Ahi Poké opened its third site in the Old Spitalfields Market in December as part of a of a wider expansion plan, and Poké and matcha tea restaurant group Tombo opened its third site, in London’s Fitzrovia, last July.

Polu Poké, a poké concept from the founder of pop up stall Eat Poké, also opened in the City of London at the end of last year.
