Niall Sabongi had an extraordinary year in 2017, when he got past multiple renovations and finally got Klaw Poke open. In addition to working as a Failte Ireland Food Champion, Mr Sabongi was opening funky new restaurants – Klaw Poké on Capel Street, and Klaw The Seafood Café on Fownes Street – and all the while keeping Klaw, his classic Temple Bar fish shack, running smoothly. Poke was a smash because Mr Sabongi knows one thing: how to make eating fish and shellfish the best fun imaginable. In Poke you can order from several signature Poké bowls – there are currently four on offer – or else create your own from scratch. The delicious Ahi Poké bowl, for example, is served with fresh tuna, pickled ginger, cucumber, ponzu, edamame and chucka wakame, served over brown rice, and is certain not only to deliver the deliciousness, but will also keep you energised for the day. Poké as a concept is perfect for a quick lunch on your ownsome, or to share with friends, and there's even a Klaws for Paws doggy bowl, at the door, for your canine companion. There are also lovely lobster rolls and oyster dishes for a good wholesome feed, and tofu Poké for the vegetarian option. The staff are as energetic and energised as the food, and the location, in Capel Street’s food zone, is a perfect stroll across the river from anywhere in the centre of the city.
