It is a good thing that this joint misspells poke--a warning sign for those who know the real thing. Considering what all these places are putting out there, they should never be allowed to use "poke" on their marquee.


poki...eep! while I was looking online there was also a site called pokinometry...


Dime a dozen of disappointment. :(


Yes....good point alnc.

And the very popular Pokirrito Kat....double eep!

These places are popping up everywhere Billy.


I think you should consider opening a poke food truck. We'll call it "Poke Man Go", or maybe "Poke Mon Go" if you want to introduce some Caribbean influence.


I had actually kidded the Missus about opening a rice bowl food truck Hao. I wanted to call it the "Bap Mobile" and call my self "Bap Man"...... ;o)


I wonder if these shop owners have ever tasted the real stuff?


I dunno Junichi; but they've probably had the stuff from all those Poke places in the OC. In essense, it's about the concept and $$$ first; product second.

Maybe the name Poki is to keep out lost PokemonGo players.


Well, well, Ed.....trying to Poke fun at the name, huh?


Well at least it's not's spelled with two O's. ;)


Lol CC!


The "poki" spelling was bothering me too. And the staff also pronounces it poki... But they were friendly here and the portions are pretty generous.


Hi Kirbie - Yes, very nice folks....kinda iffy quality though.


They opened a location in the strip mall on Clairemont Mesa and Ruffin Road (with Carl's Jr and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf). Now that the new Kaiser hospital has opened across the street, the eating places in the area should see many more patrons.


Hi Sandy - Thanks for the update. I haven't been able to get around much we got back from our trip. There's also a location in North Park as well.
