Hawaiian poké arrives

July 23, 2019

 

So far, so good for first-time restauranteurs Louay Atisha and Dominic Dallo and their new spot, Pokéworks, 716 W. Big Beaver Road, Troy. After noticing Pokéworks – which opened June 8 – while living in Manhattan, Atisha connected with Dallo about opening one up in their home state. “This was the right opportunity and the right time,” Atisha said. So what makes their poké unique? According to Atisha, it’s their ingredients, they offer lots of different mix-ins and toppings, as well as the quality of their fish. Since poké – which is basically cubed fish over rice – is a Hawaiian-inspired dish, it’s only fitting Pokéworks has Hawaiian ingredients, like ogo seaweed. The menu not only has poké bowls but burritos and salads as well.
