Second poké location
Opening their second location in Birmingham was a no brainer for Kaku Sushi & Poké. “We’ve always been kind of drawn to Birmingham and the community,” said manager Maikue Vang. “When an opportunity came we definitely wanted to take advantage of it.” Owner and chef Kaku Usui – who is also Vang’s husband – has created a menu very similar to their Bloomfield Township spot at 869 W. Long Lake Road, at Telegraph, except there are a few more Japanese sushi rolls. Their signature Hawaiian poké is still very much on the menu at the new location, 126 S. Old Woodward Avenue, which is about 1,600-square-feet and seats 20. Kaku Sushi & Poké has now opened two restaurants in under two years, so what comes next? For now, Vang said there are no plans for expansion – but never say never. “Who’s to say what will happen in the future?” she said.
