Asian Fusion – A Review of Pokiland Restaurant
No recipe from me today, instead I’d like to share with you one of my favorite restaurants here in Fresno! But just because this restaurant is in Fresno doesn’t mean you won’t have something similar near your home. Asian Fusion is all the rage and even more so are seafood burritos and wraps. Our restaurant is Pokiland and they specialize in bowls, wraps, nachos (yes nachos!) and salads.
The burritos are wrapped in sheets of seaweed (rather than a tortilla) most commonly known as nori, an edible seaweed. Then (similar to Chipotle) you walk down the line picking each ingredients for your meal. Is this restaurant near your home? Unless you live in Fresno, probably not – but I bet you have something similar. If you enjoy sushi and fresh fish you’ll really appreciate Asian Fusion. Pokiland has filled a void in our Foodie Scene by fusing Sushi and Poke flavors. The name of the restaurant comes from a combination of poke (from Hawaii) and sushi hence the name Pokiland!
All fresh ingredients and the recipes were created by the owners. The ingredients are fresh and delicious, sauces creative with just the right amount of spice. I’ve enjoyed the bowl several times. Each time trying to pick a different protein like salmon, spicy tuna, crab, shrimp, smoked mussels – all amazing it’s hard to pick a favorite.
Most recently I tried a wrap. Stuffed full of yummy goodness and wrapped in nori it was a huge explosion of flavor! Whether it’s a bowl, wrap, salad or nachos each dish is made just how you like it! I love this opportunity to have a taste of the islands locally.
At our local restaurant everything is made fresh daily, in house. Locally sourced ingredients are used whenever possible too!
Do you love Asian Fusion as much as I do? Then step out of your comfort zone and find a version near your home! Give it a try and I’d love to hear your thoughts! This meal is becoming a delicious & popular trend. I hope you find one nearby and try it soon!
