Aloha – Konnichiwa – Hello! A new Hawaiian and Japanese fusion poké (pronounced poh-kay) house will be opening soon at CityLine, Richardson.
Poké is a marinated raw fish (aka sashimi) dish most commonly found in Hawaii, and in the past few years this delectable meal has hit the mainland big time. Poké is the Hawaiian verb for “section” or “to slice or cut”. Traditional forms are aku (an oily tuna) and he’e (octopus). Increasingly popular ahi poké is generally made with Yellowfin tuna. Adaptations may feature raw salmon or various shell fish as a main ingredient served raw with the common “poké” seasonings.
LemonShark Poké is set to open this fall and will be a welcome addition to CityLine’s culinary offerings which currently include: Jasper’s, Tricky Fish, Texan Melts grilled cheese, Coal Vines, Edoko Sushi and Robata, Fernando’s Mexican Cuisine and Good Union Urban BBQ.
A few signature dishes on the LemonShark Poké menu include: Aloha Tuna with Ahi Tuna, Spicy Tuna, Cucumber & Seaweed Salad, Edamame, Avocado, Red Onion, Ginger, Crispy Garlic, Spicy Mayo & Eel Sauce; LemonShark Salmon with Salmon, Seaweed Salad, Cucumber, Corn, Water Chestnuts, Masago, Crispy Onion, LemonShark Sauce; and Tofu Garden with Tofu, Seaweed & Cucumber Salad, Edamame, Green Onion, Carrots, Tomato, Avocado, Crispy Garlic, Spicy Mayo
