Sushi Cup

NAMED THE BEST FAST CASUAL POKE OF DENVER 2018

SUSHI CUP IS A MODERN AND UNIQUE TWIST ON POKE WHICH COMBINES HAWAIIAN, KOREAN AND JAPANESE FOOD TOGETHER.

What we did was combine Hawaiian style with the taste of Japanese raw fish. Hawaiian Poke is essentially the Japanese equivalent of sashimi. Through combining both cultures, we were able to create Sushi Cup, which is a healthy fast food alternative that everyone can enjoy from: gluten free, vegetarians, vegans and even non-fish connoisseurs.

Poke Is Poking Up All Over Denver

“Poke, the Hawaiian dish made with diced, marinated tuna or other seafood, was a rarity in Denver even just two or three years ago. Back in those dark, poke-less days, the seafood dish was only available at a few Hawaiian joints in town, like Iwayama Sushi, and as occasional appetizers at seafood giants like Jax Fish House. But recently, poke has spread to more traditional sushi bars, as well as restaurants that aren't necessarily fish houses or Pacific Rim specialists. You'll find it at Mister Tuna, where poke seems an obvious choice, as well as places like Public School 303 or the Yard House, where soy-marinated tuna swims alongside more traditional pub fare.

While culinary trends tend to take over menus in waves, poke is now hitting Denver with tsunami force, with entire eateries dedicated to the dish opening up in shopping centers and neighborhoods around town. Ohana Island Kitchen started as a walk-up joint serving Hawaiian specialties out the side door of the Truffle Table before moving across the intersection to 2563 15th Street last fall. Of Ohana's half-dozen entrees, three are poke-based, ensuring that the popular little joint sells plenty of tuna, thus keeping supplies fresh.

If that's not enough, the Governor's Park neighborhood is about to be bowled over by Sushi Cup, which will take over the tiny slot at 208 East Seventh Avenue vacated by Flow Juice Bar. 

While the simplest versions of poke are little more than diced fish dressed in soy and sesame oil, Sushi Cup's bowls will venture far beyond that.” Westword
