Sushi Fix's tuna poke: 50 Favorite Dishes, no. 35
Tuna poke me, please!
As a countdown to the Best of the Twin Cities 2013, coming April 17, the Hot Dish is serving up 50 of our favorite local dishes.
Tuna poke is tossed in a lightly salty sauce with avocado and fried beet chips. The tuna is wonderfully meaty and rolls over the tongue like a set of silky sheets. The lush, perfectly ripe avocado cubes are rich, fatty, and creamy. The tart, crisp beet chips add a welcome earthy, crunchy foil. Voluptuous, luxurious, and light, it's as opulent as any of those nearby lakeside homes, but for a fraction of the price. Kampai!
