Open for dine in, click & collect and delivery, poké fans can choose from a selection of house bowls on a fluffy sushi rice or green leaves base. These include the best-selling Yuzu Lomi Lomi Salmon featuring sashimi grade 100% Scottish salmon, mango mint salsa, edamame and yuzu dressing; the Chicken Teriyaki with double miso chicken, shiitake teriyaki dressing, pineapple chilli salsa, pickled red cabbage and yuzu koshu seed mix.

For those wanting to try their award-winning bao buns, choose between the Spicy Tuna, Yuzu Salmon, Korean BBQ Chicken and Miso Aubergine. 

Launching in time for the opening those looking for a warmer bite can try their all-new hot food menu featuring Island Katsu and Pacific Coconut Curry with a choice of blackened miso chicken or teriyaki mushrooms, sesame infused brown rice or udon noodles. 

With over 50,000 Build Your Own Bowl options too, they really are bringing a little slice of paradise to the Scotland’s capital.

To celebrate the opening, the team have collaborated with Aye Pickled an Edinburgh based family business reinventing condiments with an exciting range of pickles, live-cultured ferments and sauces. For a gochugaru chilli kick, poké fans will be able to add a drizzle of their smoky Kimchi Hot Sauce to their bowls or purchase an exclusive collab bottle to take home. There’s no better way to fire up your poké with a pacific flavour handmade in Scotland.

Island Poké will also be running a series of giveaway and activities in the lead up to the launch featuring exclusive offers and promotions to neighbouring residents, both instore and online. They will also be hosting their infamous £1 bowl day where customers can get their hands on any house bowl for just £1! Keep your eyes peeled on their socials for further announcements.

The Edinburgh opening will be shortly followed mid-summer by new Island openings in both Brighton and Bristol with a number of further locations in central London being considered for later in the year.

Island Poké founder James Gould-Porter said: “We’re thrilled to be opening our first Island in Scotland, it’s another real milestone for the Island Poké brand and a great opportunity to expand the poké fan base. Having served up 100% Scottish salmon from day one, being able to collaborate with another local business, Aye Pickled, to champion pacific flavours is exciting too.”
