In recent years, poke bowls have become a staple in Vancouver, and I have been digging to find Vancouver’s best poke bowls. To me, a good poke bowl is one that uses high-quality, fresh ingredients, and I would crave it every so often. And Pokey Okey is definitely on this list. It has multiple locations – Downtown, Richmond, and Burnaby (Kingsway). They offer a wide variety of poke bowls, along with protein and vegetable toppings.

Crispy Shrimp Toast

Shrimp Toast is all about its crispy crust, golden-brown shell, with the perfect amount of bouncy, chewy shrimp paste. A flavorful mixture of ground shrimp is spread onto slices of white bread. You can then air-fry, pan-fry, or like what we are doing today – deep-fry them. I normally like to pair it with the Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, but I was out of that at home. I used Kewpie Mayo with sprinkles of paprika instead, and it turned out surprisingly delicious.

Mango Mochi

Mochi is probably the easiest and most fun dessert to make, as long as you don’t get them to stick on your hands. As mango season has just arrived in Vancouver, it is the perfect time for us to make Mango Mochi. Tangy and sweet mango filling is covered with airy freshly whipped cream and soft, chewy mochi. It is the perfect dessert for afternoon tea snacks or the upcoming warmer days. It can also be easily customized for vegan preferences.

Beef Tenderloin Rice Bowl with Onsen Egg (Gyudon)

This recipe is a creation from the leftover cooked beef tenderloin from my previous post – Pistachio-Crusted Beef Tenderloin. It is also inspired by the classic comfort food from Japan, Gyudon (Japanese beef bowl). This Beef Tenderloin Rice Bowl is paired with an onsen egg. When mixing the yolk with rice, it adds a layer of richness to the overall flavour. I would say this is the best part of the meal.
