In the Bay Area, the poke trend has become a thing, spawning many new fast casual poke bars and appearance of the fish dish on various menus. Originally from Hawaii, the dish is classically comprised of raw fish with a variety of mix-ins, toppings, and sauces. According to Eater National, it's the next big fast casual push nationwide, though San Francisco's strong connections to Hawaii make it particularly apropos in this city. Plus, it's light and healthy (depending whether you go for the spicy mayo), and plays into SF's love of sushi.
Here are 15 places to indulge in a hamachi, albacore, ahi, octopus, or whatever floats your boat. Try mix-ins like pineapple, wasabi, ginger, nori, avocado, jalapeño or even strawberries, tossed with sauces like ponzu, spicy mayo, sesame shoyu, and more.
