For this month’s Featured Menu Item, we are going to do some learning. Everyone has seen the recent Poke-craze that is sweeping the nation. No, not Pokémon. That is so last month. I am referring to Poke, pronounced /poʊˈkeɪ/ which is a raw fish salad. You can trace it’s origins to Hawaii where Poke is a Hawaiian cuisine. According to the internets, “Poke is the Hawaiian verb for “section” or “to slice or cut”. That brings us to the most popular Poke and the one that we are featuring today, the Ahi Poke. Ahi pronounced /ˈähē/ and as most of you probably know; is a large tuna. But we are not just featuring any Ahi Poke, we are featuring the Ahi Poke from Social Tap in Old Town Scottsdale. They have perfected it.
Here are the details:
Sushi grade ahi tuna seasoned with sesame oil & Asian spices topped with avocado. Served with fried wontons
This dish is something special, it can be ordered as an appetizer or as your entrée. Either way, you will not be disappointed. With a little bit of spice and a whole lot of freshness this should be on your Poke hunt list.
