Durham gets first Pokeworks
Pokéworks has opened its first North Carolina location at 122 West Main St. in Durham. To celebrate, the ocean-to-counter spot will feature a special buy-one-get-one free offer on all poke bowls, burritos and salads all day on Nov. 10 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The menu offers “Poke Your Way,” where guests can build an original poke burrito, poke bowl or poke salad from the concept’s customizable menu. Protein selections range from fresh ahi tuna, salmon and albacore tuna, to sous vide chicken, scallops, shrimp and organic tofu. After selecting the base, guests can choose from a variety of Hawaiian-inspired mix-ins and toppings like masago, seaweed salad, pickled ginger, spicy furikake and sauces like umami shoyu, wasabi aioli and spicy ginger.
The menu will also feature Signature Works, including the new Black Album Bowl with Nori Tsukidani sauce and black sesame salt atop your favorite protein of choice from chef-collaborator Sheldon Simeon, executive chef/owner of Maui’s Tin Roof and an alumnus of Bravo’s “Top Chef.”
Founded in 2015, Pokéworks was created to introduce a Hawaiian island favorite to the Mainland. Pokéworks co-founder Peter Yang was recently named as one of Forbes' 2018 30 under 30 in the Food and Drink category. Pokéworks now boasts 20 locations in the U.S. and Canada, and is expecting to reach 100 stores by 2020.
