Poké 65's creations are influenced by different cuisines, such as Vietnamese, Japanese, Thailand and more.
This is the Saigon Bowl (Rs. 1450). Resting on a bed of rice noodles, it featured a bunch of colourful veggies – thinly sliced carrots, zucchini, cabbage lettuce and mint leaves, a heap of minced chicken sprinkled with crushed peanuts, and Poké 65's signature chicken spring rolls, cut into pieces.
It seems to be deriving inspiration from Vietnamese and Thai flavours. The ensemble of peanut and chicken was lovely, while the vegetables were fresh and crunchy. There was a light crisp in the spring rolls, along with a tasty, well-seasoned filling that's rich with chicken, garlic and a subtle note of ginger.
With a drizzle of spicy, garlicky, zesty Saigon sauce they serve on the side, the entire dish gets to a whole new level of flavours.
The Poké Maguro Bowl (Rs. 1450) had a dash of Japanese flavours in it. Nestled over some sticky, sushi rice, it had a slab of grilled sashimi tuna seasoned with spicy mayonnaise, as well vegetables – corn, carrots, zucchini, onions and a kale salad, along with some pickled ginger for the extra zing.
This portion of Viet Nam (Rs. 650) includes more Vietnamese-style chicken spring rolls. In here, they simply make the rolls with the filling and rice paper, and deep fry them.
Poké 65 makes nutritious lunches with fresh elements. They use eco-friendly bowls to assort them, which is another plus point. The delivery fee was a little higher than we anticipated, but all in all, they're a worthy purchase.
