Fast-casual poke bar Maui Onion, open today, offers no less than twelve varieties of poke. The options can be prepared as a bowl, salad, burrito, or temaki (hand roll). Examples of combinations include Yuzu Shoyu Salmon with onion, cucumber, scallion, lotus chips, pomegranate, and pickled ginger; and Spicy Tuna with scallion, cucumber, hijiki, onion, and pickled ginger.
It will also offer fresh juices (cactus pear, pineapple, and kale) and hot infused teas (lemon and pear; lemon, ginger, and grape).
To celebrate the opening, Maui Onion will offer complimentary teas with the purchase of any signature combination from Nov. 30 through Dec. 2, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The eatery’s name references Hawaii, where poke is popular—Maui onions are small varieties of onions grown on Maui.
