Poke is all the rage right now and I am grabbing my purse and hopping on the raw fish train, y’all. Having spent the majority of my life in Sweet Home Alabama, I haven’t seen a whole lot of poke in my day, but now that I’ve been exposed, I can’t get enough. I recently had the pleasure of dining at Sam Choy’s Poke to the Max with the restaurant co-founder and Godfather of Poke himself – Sam Choy. When I asked him about the poke craze that’s been unleashing itself on the west coast recently he looked at me and said, “Let me tell you Stephanie, poke is going to be here forever.” He said it with such an utterly passionate calmness that I absolutely believed him. And let me tell y’all – his team is creating some amazing food at Poke to the Max.
Thank you Chef Choy for a fantastic meal!
