Already feeling overwhelmed? Let me break it down for you starting with poke. Google labels poke as a “fish salad” which is fairly accurate. Poke was popularized in California, but it’s definitely made its way to Arizona. There are at least ten different poke restaurants across the state. Most places serve poke in a bowl. Raw fish and other toppings are layered on rice or salad but, Pokitrition in Chandler is doing things a bit different.
Behold the sushi burrito. It’s everything you love about poke, wrapped up in a sheet of seaweed, which is why Pokitrition also describes the delicacy as a “poke wrap”.
Now that you understand the greatness that is poke and the insanity that is a poke burrito, here’s some more mind-blowing information. Pokitrition offers a Hot Cheetos Sushi Burrito. The monster creation costs $9.95 plus $0.70 for Hot Cheetos so $10.65 total. It’s a lot of food for the price tag. Hot Cheetos’ typical heat is actually toned down by all the fish, rice, and other toppings. Instead of overpowering the poke, the Hot Cheetos add just a bit of spice and crunch.
If you’re not so adventurous, Pokitrition also offers traditional poke bowls along with cold-brewed tea made fresh daily. You can try it all for yourself weekdays between 10:45 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Pokitrition is open weekends 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday.
