Emerging Pacific restaurant chain Island Poké has opened a branch in Islington – and food bowls will all be £1 for a day next week.

The venue on 13 Upper Street has become the 14th location of the brand which specialises in poke, a Hawaiian dish – traditionally (but not exclusively) blending diced fish and vegetables. 

To mark the opening, Island Poké is offering £1 bowls to customers on Wednesday, October 6. One bowl is a meal and there are also chicken and vegan options.

There are some 50,000 combinations of food available to order.

Further openings are planned in London for Notting Hill and Richmond. 

Island Poké founder James Gould-Porter said: “We’re very pleased to be opening another Island in Angel Islington.
