Makai Poke at Tanjong Pagar Centre, Singapore


It's a new week, which means that there's yet another new poke shop in Singapore (7 Wallich Street #B1-08). At this rate, I'm gonna start taking bets on when Cold Storage starts to offer poke bowls as well.

I wasn't too big on this one though. Why not? For one, there was very limited configurability. You could pick a base and a poke, but the toppings were preset. You could pay more for some more of the same toppings...or maybe the chia seeds above. But that was it. And that pre-configured set of pineapple and lime just reminded me of Aloha Poke (not in a good way).

To make it worse, the portions were pretty stingy. And the fact that the rice was still warm really bothered me. I'll stick to Loloku and Alaka'i.
