Poke fans, take heed: there's a new spot in town to get your fix. Called Walking Fish, the new arrival is located at 254 Fillmore St. in the Lower Haight, the space that was formerly home to Three Twins Ice Cream.
Like most poke spots, Walking Fish offers a build-your-own menu ($12-14), with a base of rice, salad, shredded cabbage or corn chips, and toppings like ahi tuna, salmon, or shrimp ceviche. Bowls can be accessorized with add-ons like vegetables, sauces and crunchy toppings.
For those who'd prefer some freedom from choice, there are also a few premade bowls like the Wasabi Salmon (salmon with wasabi aioli, pickled ginger, tobiko, scallions, cucumber, radish, wasabi peas and furikake over sushi rice). Vegetarian and vegan options, including crispy tofu and chickpea tapenade, are also available.
In addition to poke bowls, Walking Fish is planning to add açai and pitaya bowls to its lineup in the future, complete with granola and fresh fruit. The petite space mostly deals in to-go options, but there are a few seats for customers who'd like to dine in.
Walking Fish has proven popular thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of 12 reviews on Yelp.
Leeyen R., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on April 23, wrote, "Fresh, healthy to-go options (there are a few seats inside)! The staff is friendly, and there are enough choices and sauces to keep your meal different and personalized each time you stop by."
And Yelper Christian H. wrote, "Been walking past this place all week and stopped in yesterday. Ordered the Japanese miso-ginger bowl. It was so good! An awesome deal for the amount of food they give you."
Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: Walking Fish is open from 10:30 a.m.–8 p.m. daily.
