Hawaiian Dish at Honu Poké & Matcha Bar
Honu Poké & Matcha Bar in Kemang is getting a lot of attention these days; it’s clear from the swarm of people waiting for their orders there. I checked it out to see what’s the deal.
What the place basically offering is pairing Hawaiian dishes with Japanese matcha or green tea. While Hawaiian food is not something new in Jakarta, pairing it with Japanese element is not so common in town.
The poké bowl served here includes raw fish, rice and some toppings. They have three favorite poké bowl: Honu-Lulu (with tuna), Yugo (salmon) and Two & Two (tuna and salmon), each comes with their own toppings.
I did not have any expectation, so I was happy when it turned out quite good. The use of shoyu lent a sweetness, working well with the edamame and tobiko. By the way, you can choose from two kind of rice: white sushi rice and brown rice without extra charge. They made the rice sticky like that of sushi, that’s why it’s called white sushi rice.
Psst.. their wifi password is pokebowl.
