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 trend picks up in Denver with opening of Sushi Cup

“If Hawaii and Japan had a torrid affair, their culinary love child would be poke. Combining cubes of raw fish with delicious Hawaiian seasonings is something we need more of in our lives, so we’re psyched that the trend is picking up in Denver and that Sushi Cup opened last Friday next to Max’s Wine Dive on 7th Avenue.

Despite the “sushi” name, this restaurant will be serving poke bowls and burritos — layers of rice, marinated raw fish, fresh veggies and chopped nori — in addition to sushi rolls.


“We aren’t like all the other poke trend pop-up restaurants looking to open fast, have high sales and sell the business right away,” owner Andrew Castillo said. “My menu will not only feature a diverse range of options, but it will bring the quality and service of a sushi restaurant.”By the way, poke is pronounced po-kay — kind of like Jackée from TV’s “Sister Sister” and “227” (oh come on, you watched) — and Sushi Cup isn’t messing around with mispronunciations. “
