Sushi cornucopia

January 30, 2020

 

Inside 70 W. Alexandrine Street, Detroit, there’s build-your-own poke bowls and burritos, as well as sushi doughnuts, sushi pizza, and sushi corn dogs. Yes, you read that right – sushi corn dogs. The latest expansion from the Atlanta chain, Poke Burri, opened in December in Detroit, and surprisingly those sushi corn dogs are selling out, according to Seven Chan, co-founder of Poke Burri, along with Ken Yu. The Detroit location is being managed by Mohamad Atwi from Dearborn. “For a lot of people sushi is still unapproachable, raw things are unapproachable, we’re kind of like that gateway...and I think we’re doing that in the city, which is awesome,” Chan said. Open Tuesday through Sunday, the Detroit location launched a new item, their jalapeño Arancini.
