I recently went to visit FINS Poke Fusion in Mission Viejo. It was my first time at the restaurant and some of the friends that we were with were explaining to us how they used to be an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant and had recently changed to the new concept of Poke Bowls, Macho Rolls, and Poke Tacos. Owners, Peter Cho and Moby Duncan had the right idea! Fresh poke bowl places have popped up in several areas in North Orange County and I was so very excited to have FINS recently open less than 10 miles from my home in South Orange County! This is just what we needed. Seriously, we really needed a poke place in our area!
When FINS Poke Fusion invited me in to try their poke bowls, I of course kindly obliged. Poke is literally one of my personal favorites and when I eat it, it brings back happy visions of Hawaii in my mind. When I travel to the big island, I always must visit my favorite poke place called, “Da Poke Shack” in which they actually show you the fresh fish they catch for the day and slice it up in front of your very eyes…Anyhow, after eating at that place sometimes twice a day when I travel to Hawaii, I think my poke standards are quite high! 🙂
I am happy to say that I loved FINS poke…sure I would have loved if my bowl had even more ahi tuna then it did, but I think next time I will ask for a double order, just because I am crazy like that! 🙂
At FINS you go through a line that is Chipotle style where you can actually select each of the fresh ingredients one by one while the staff prepares your bowl, roll or taco depending on what you fancy. One of my recommendations….make sure to add the crab and avocado! They truly can add something amazing to your poke experience. I also loved the sauces that they had at FINS and I ended up having them mix their spicy mayo with a soy based sauce and the combination was divine. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for extra sauce on the side. 🙂
As you can see in my photos, the staff at FINS works very hard to make sure that each customer is satisfied. It is great to have the personal experience of going through the line and customizing your own order! I cannot wait to visit FINS again in the near future!
