Kosher Corner: Koshe Poke

Kosher cuisine has evolved over the years.  Now, your kosher palate can enjoy new and exciting tastes from around the world. As a creature of habit, I am sometimes averse to making drastic changes in my food intake. That being said, I was excited to embrace the Poke revolution.The kosher market is ripe for something innovative like Poke. Koshe Poke is taking advantage of the poke (pronounced poh-kay) craze that’s been spreading east from its origins in Hawaii to the mainland’s West Coast and now to our own little overpopulated island of Manhattan.If you are looking for a meal that is nutritious, delicious and affordable look no further than Koshe Poke.

Poke is a dish of raw cubed fish lightly marinated in soy and sesame, sometimes served over rice. Sold as a snack in grocery stores and even gas stations in the Aloha state, it is eaten more often on the sand than in a sit-down restaurant. For $12.99 you can get a bowl, burrito or salad. Kosh Poke is located at 43 East 43rd St., New York, NY; 212-725-8100.
