At this rate Poke is appearing at different part of Singapore, soon we will be able to find Poke at all corners of Singapore. Last week, we visited Aloha Poke, forth outlet at Bugis and this week we tried Poke Lulu at United Square.
Most Poke joints are takeaway kiosk with a handful of seats. Poke Lulu is no exception. The seating area isn’t the most glamorous and comfortable.
Poke Lulu offers about 5 poke selection with both Tuna and Salmon choices. They have roughly half a dozen of topping and superfood too.
At Poke Lulu, they are so far the only Poke outlet that I know offering additional sauce and condiments for self-service.
Finally, ordering is simple. Take a chit and tick the bowl size, poke, toppings and superfood. The selection process and options are similar to Aloha Poke. There are 3 sizes, Small ($11.90 – 1 scoop 75g poke), Medium ($15.90 – 2 scoops 150g poke) and Large ($19.90 – 3 scoops 225g poke).
Alternatively, diners could leave it to the decision to the service crew for their customised bowl. There isn’t standard bowl at Poke Lulu.
Finally, my assembled Medium Bowl ($15.90 for 2 scoops 150 g of poke) with mix base (white and brown rice), a scoop of Original Salmon and a scoop of Spicy Tuna with Flying Fish Roe, Sunflower Seeds and Cucumber as complimentary add-ons. Lastly, Avocado for superfood.
The poke flavour was closed to Aloha Poke. Both has a distinct Sesame Oil. The only difference, Poke Lulu is lighter in flavour.
At Poke Lulu, Musubi Rice ($3.90) and even kids menu ($5.90) are available.
For drinks, Coconut Water ($3) is available too. Other choices are Evain ($3), Perriar ($4).
The impression of Poke Lulu was too similar to Aloha Poke. Especially with their format of ordering and flavour. After all, not a bad choice but if they could have an uniqueness, it would have been better.
