Located on West 3rd Street, Mainland has been open for just over a month, but word of the fresh, raw fish bar where you can mix and match bases, proteins, and toppings has spread quickly. There was a line out the door when I arrived for an evening snack at 6pm on a Wednesday! Owner Ari Kahan and Executive Chef Kayson Chong have started something worth noticing.
My eyes darted between the fresh ingredients spread through the glass in front of me and the menu posted on the wall. I didn't know where to begin. I explained to the staff that it was my first time having a go with the Poke. They promised to be gentle.
- Brown rice base
- 2 scoops Tuna 1 scoop Salmon (all large bowls come with 3 scoops of protein)
- Sweet onions
- Green onions
- Pickled ginger
- Sesame seeds
- Coconut Sauce (more sweet than spicy)
As you can see in the below photo, it turned out to be a delicious masterpiece!
If you already love sushi, but have never been "Poke'd" you must have the experience. It's fast, healthy, affordable and you can easily eat it on the go. That's right ya busy schmuck, you can eat and walk at the same time! C'mon do what The Food Pervert says...
