#4 Poke Lab

Cr: @yazirayusoff

Another poke bowl in KL, comparable with the Fish Bowl in terms of quality and taste, according to some. Unlike other poke bowls in KL where poached egg is coomonly found, Poke Lab serves hard boiled egg instead. Nonetheless, great poke bowl with generous amount of ingredients and the portion are just right. Mix all together for better flavors (this is best to cover up rawness of vege thanks to the sauce).

While some of you might be thinking Eatomo doesn’t sound poke at all, but more of a Japanese restaurant. Yes Eatomo is a California-Japanese cuisine and they’re Japanese food are highly rated, but their poke bowls are really popular as well. You can opt for the classic poke bowls like salmon and tuna bowls, or special finds like spicy scallop bowl. Prices are a tad higher and smaller portion, but the quality and ingredients used, bomb.

#7 Wonder Poke Wonder Tea

Cr: @kp.96

Wonder Poke Wonder Tea is one of the lesser known poke bowls in KL, and has a Taiwanese vibe. Though this place doesn’t serve white rice, they do have options such as puffed rice and penne pasta. Your poke bowl is served in a cute, fish-shaped bowl to resemble the dish, how cute is that? Sauces are very generous here so ring the waiter if you want them less. Note that price is a bit higher but you get to choose 5 main toppings, which isn’t bad.

A rather seafood restaurant in Mont Kiara, The Fast Fish aims to deliver freshness and quality seafood at a humble way. Having over 10 years of expereience in distributing Japanese fish products, the owner decided to open up Fat Fish. Besides serving top-notch seafood, their poke bowls break the common by serving true Japanese style poke bowl. Neat and particular, their presentation wins. Unlike other poke bowl where it’s a good mess drenched in sauces, Fat Fish’s is sleek, presentable and not covered in sauces.

Another poke bowl joint in town, all you poke bowl fans rejoice! Bright yellow store resembles the bright and bold healthy options that Kurin has to offer. Though offers here are limited wih only a few main toppings to choose, nevertheless Kurin is still worth trying. Generous amount of filling with just the right amount to fit into your belly. We heard their salmon are to die for. Fresh, big chunks and supple texture.

#10 Poke Bear

Cr: @zoeehjayess

Was once known to serve one of the best poke bowls in KL, we heard quite negative sides of Poke Bear recently. Still, we gave it a second chance and it wasn’t bad. Apart from all the ingredients and toppings, nothing’s wrong until the last step, the sauce. We suggest you to ring them to cut off the amount of sauces or else you’ll be eating porridge kind of texture. They offer quite a few loyalty programmes to save some cash, so head over to Poke Bear and give them a fair chance.
