AC Food Fight: Poke

Ola Poke and Poke Poke get raw

By Brandon Watson, November 18, 2016, Food

The bitter truth about fads is that we rarely think things through. True, yesterday's Pogs are no doubt being worked into crochet vests by some spirit healer on Venice Beach and forgotten JNCOs have a little utility left in them as deeply practical carryalls, but most of our fancies deserve to be forgotten. But not poke – that delicious Hawaiian fish salad that this year has become as trendy as the Mannequin Challenge. Still, slave to fashion or not, we won't just sit still for any old raw fish. We're getting our knives out for another Austin Chronicle Food Fight.
