Interesting. Bristol Farms used to (still might?) have a self-serve poke bar. I found the marinade both a bit sweet and bit abrasive but thought it was an interesting concept - though not interesting enough to go back and get it again.


Great recommendation! Had no idea Whole Foods had that available.


Yes, James-Bristol Farms still sells poke by the pound ($13/lb, I think) and when I am there (and want a snack), I will alternate spicy and 'plain' flavors when filling the container; that dilutes the sweetness and adds just enough heat. Since there are no rules, sometimes I put in 3 pieces of plain and 3 pieces of the wasabi/spicy and after I pay, have a quick snack before driving home.
Whole Foods has all sorts of interesting hidden gems within the signage and not at eye level, Q. Thanks for stopping by to comment.


Too bad the Whole food here doesn't carry poke.

By the way Happy Chinese New Year!


Maybe 'your' Whole Foods does want to ensure fresh seafood, which in a way is very good, Bill. Gong xi fa cai to you, too!


Happy Chinese New Year!


This is the WF in La Jolla right? I like this location b/c they offer the salmon poke which the other locations don't seem to offer. I've tried their salmon poke before (but ask for the poke sauce to be put on the side). It's pretty good. I think their tuna poke is more expensive for some reason. Try the salmon one next time with the sauce on the side?


The photo (and poke bowl) were from the La Jolla location, Faye. I didn't notice salmon at other places, but The Mister does not seem to like salmon in any shape or form, so unless I'm eating alone, no salmon, onions,anchovies or olives are usually ordered, because we share. I kind of like the already marinated tuna poke from Bristol Farms a lot and never had it on the side; but I will try it on the side (with salmon) next time I'm in that area.
