-Grubbing in Chicago
New to the 'Scene'

The Poke Craze of 2016 continues on across the country. Every city I've visited this year had some hot poke shop that was getting lots of love. Chicago being no different we've seen a few poke shops open up shop in the process. One of which debuted in Uptown this past summer. Pokiology is the project of a couple of Angry Crab restaurant co-owners.

Pretty much every single one of these poke shops are set up in the same way. They make use of the Chipotle style serving station where you choose what you want and watch them fill your bowl. Options are for one, two, or three scoops of poke which can be tuna, salmon, shrimp, or spicy tuna. Rice is brown or white. You then add on whatever else you want out of their topping selections. In my case I got the tuna with onions, cucumbers, Japanese seaweed, green onion, jalapeno, wasabi, and probably a couple others things I'm forgetting. They also have some sauce options and the three way flavor was pretty good mixed in with everything else. Honestly most poke places seem to taste the same. I guess it's in the toppings where one can stand out. I thought this bowl was on-par with the others spots to have opened shop in the city. I just dont happen to love this stuff the way others do.
