Oka-San Kitchen – Momma’s Poke Bowl
The one drawback to vacationing in Hawaii is having serious withdrawal of Hawaiian food after returning home. Thankfully, we’re starting to see some specialty restaurants open up in Vancouver lately that cater to Hawaiian cuisine.
My first visit to Oka-San Kitchen on Fraser was back in November of last year. Since that time, my sweetie has been wondering why I haven’t taken her there yet. So, here we go…
We started out with the Edamame and Veggie Croquettes. I wanted to order the spam musubi but they were all out… sigh.
Both appetizers were prepared properly. The croquettes reminded me of the ones that we get at the Powell Street Festival every year.
I am pleased that they’ve changed their plating of dishes since I first visited. I had the Hawaiian Loco Moco (which is a very popular Hawaiian dish). The thick hamburger patty was meaty and covered in a slightly peppery sauce and topped off with a fried egg with a perfectly runny yolk. As you can imagine, this went quite well with the rice that came along with the dish. As typical with plate lunches in Hawaii, it also came with a mac and potato salad mix. If that wasn’t enough carbs for you, there were also crispy wedge potatoes drizzled with a spicy sauce.
And the true reason for coming here… Momma’s Poke Bowl. This came with tuna and salmon, avocado, crab, and mac salad over rice. Generally, you don’t see avocado in most poke dishes in Hawaii but the fattiness from the avocado goes well with the dish.
Overall, there’s some really good dishes here… wish I got a chance to try out their spam musubi!
