Poke Trend Still Going Strong As Mission Bay's 'Poke Life' Debuts

It seems there remain fish in the sea and diners eager for more poke in San Francisco, as yet another poke business has opened its doors. Called Poke Life, it's located at 1700 Owens St., across from UCSF’s Mission Bay Campus.

The new business, which softly opened earlier this month, features small ($10.95) or large ($12.95) "signature" poke bowl options, like the "Hawaii Five-O" (tuna, edamame, cucumber, roasted sesame seeds) and "The Cocktail" (sous vide prawn, wasabi sauce, cucumber, avocado, pickled ginger, carrot, dried shallots). There's also a familiar make-your-own-bowl option, which lets diners choose from a variety of rice or veggie bases, fish options, sauce, and custom toppings. (See the full menu here.)

The new spot is squarely aimed at the weekday lunch crowd, open 11am-3pm Monday-Friday. It's one of many poke-themed openings over the last couple months, which include the Mission's Dolores Outpost, the Inner Sunset's Poke Origin, Chinatown's Katsu House and Russian Hill's Ahipoki.
