Vancouver's Westcoast Poké is heading south. The poké shop is opening up their long-anticipated Richmond location on Friday, February 23, and to get the party started they'll be giving out free poké bowls to the first 500 customers.
Westcoast Poké will be the first restaurant devoted to the popular Hawaiian-born raw fish dish to open up in Richmond. They're moving into a space in Richmond's Ironwood shopping area, on Steveston Highway, in a unit that was previously a Flight Centre outpost.
For their opening day, Westcoast Poké will have bowls in three of their signature flavours for the first 500 people to cross the threshold: Aloha, Pacific, and Cascade.
Not part of the promo is their Ahimi, a revolutionary vegan tuna stand-in they launched a couple of months ago at their original Vancouver location near Cambie and Broadway.
Westcoast Poké's Richmond location is at 3030-11666 Steveston Highway.
