Pembroke Pines, FL. October 2017 – Hawaii is the most isolated population center on the face of the earth with its closest neighbor being California at 2,390 miles away. Regardless of the vast distance, the irreplaceable Hawaiian culture is making its way towards the shores of the mainland.

The number of Hawaiian restaurants (which includes poke-themed spots) took off in 2014 and has been spreading like wildfire along the West Coast, according to Foursquare and Swarm data. States with the largest native Hawaiian populations have the most consistent growth in Hawaiian restaurants. In Florida, the poke scene could almost triple by 2020 and in the west, Hawaiian restaurants are almost guaranteed to boom. But it’s not just the number of restaurants that is growing. More and more people are hopping aboard the poke train. Google searches for “poke bowl” are 355 percent more popular this year compared to last year.

Island Fin Poke wishes to welcome everyone to the islands – where fresh, original poke bowls are presented in unique Hawaiian and Caribbean style. Founders Mark and Paul have brought their passion for food and community to life at Island Fin Poke – where guests are treated like family, and each dish is inspired by the changing of seasons. More like brothers than friends; Mark and Paul’s relationship is rooted in the Hawaiian culture of ohana (“the family”).
From pole-to-bowl and farm-to-fork, only the freshest fish, produce and ingredients are allowed to enter. Always fresh, never frozen. The balance of their menu varies depending on the season, their local suppliers – and most importantly, the freshest catch-of-the-day. Island Fin Poke manages to bring Hawaiian flavor a few thousand miles closer to you. “Ridiculously delicious food. No passport necessary.
See you after the next fresh catch.”

About Island Fin Poke
Did you know you could fit the entire islands of Hawaii into Florida 10x’s over? (Well, if you scrunched them all together and moved them around a lot, at least.) To avoid all that displacement, Mark & Paul of Big Kahuna’s Island Style Bowls decided instead to bring one of the best tastes of the islands here while still keeping it true to form. By that, we mean drawing on local, sustainable, and seasonal ingredients to create the freshest and most flavorful island-style poke bowls you’ll find. (And let’s just settle this part now: it’s pronounced “po-kay.” See how easy it is to become an expert?)
