Traditionally made with a base of cubed raw fish, such as ahi tuna or salmon, and seasoned with soy sauce, sesame oil, and scallions, this dish is often served over a bed of rice or fresh greens. But don’t let the traditional ingredients limit you – nowadays, poké comes in all sorts of creative combinations and toppings that will tantalise your taste buds. Discover our eight favourite places for a quick, flavour-packed poké bowl in Hong Kong.
