Paperfish @ TTDI: Healthy Delicious Hawaii-Inspired Poke Bowls

11:47 becky-wong 0 Comments

Among all the Indian restaurants, Malay food and cafes, Paperfish is like a breath of fresh air at TTDI. Why do I say so? Because of the concept of Paperfish - Healthy yet delicious Hawaii-inspired poke bowls.

Poke means "to cute or to slice" in Hawaiian. It is one of many Hawaii delicacies where fresh cuts of sashimi will be cubed and marinated with variety of flavours, then paired with fresh local produce where it can all be enjoyed in a bowl.

Despite being a delicacy from Hawaii, you can actually find Japanese influence in poke bowls, and I like how Paperfish incorporated this into their name along with the colourful origami found in the shop.

Just like the simple and clean concept of their food, they have kept the shop simple yet spacious.

There are a total of 10 different types of poke bowls found on their menu, but you can always customized your own poke bowls by choosing your proteins, sides and base. Looking at the menu, I wish I could order everything on their menu and have a poke feast, but I know I'll be having a tough time finishing them. :(

So, my friends and I decided on 4 poke bowls.

Umami Shoyu Tuna (RM 16.90). Kick-start our poke meal with a bowl of classic poke done the Hawaiian way. The light shoyu flavours goes very well with the delicate tuna cubes, and we added some Chia seeds to go with our tuna. For someone who loves very strong flavours, I truly enjoyed the Umami Shoyu Tuna. Despite its light taste, but the flavours were there. I actually went back the 2nd time and ordered this again.

Mango Salsa Shrimp (RM 17.90). Fresh shrimps with mango salsa. yumz! The natural sweetness of the fresh shrimp and savoury-sweet mango salsa were perfect match. A highly recommend poke bowl at Paperfish!

Heat Wave (RM 17.90). Another protein available at Paperfish is salmon, and we were told Heat Wave is one of their best-sellers. Heat Wave has a tad of spiciness but not too over-whelming. If you are not a fan of sashimi, you can actually request to have yours cooked, like our salmon. Personally, I'd still prefer mine to be served raw, as I really don't enjoy eating cooked-salmon.

For vegetarian options, go for the Cado Bowl (RM 15.90). Instead of sashimi, they have replaced it with creamy avocados. If you love avocado as much as I do, and don't mind not having meat for a meal, try this!

Not sure how to order at Paperfish?

Step 1: Choose your proteins - salmon, tuna or shrimp.
Step 2: Choose your base - brown rice, white rice, baby green or quinoa (+RM 1.90).
Step 3: Go for the default sides or choose your 4 preferred sides, and top-up an additional of RM0.50 with every scoop of additional sides.
Step 4: To make your poke bowl healthier, feel free to add-on Chia seeds, flaxseeds, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, almond, sous vide egg and many more.

Voila, you can start to enjoy your poke bowl!

Hot Tea (RM 5.90).

Cold Tea.

The Grand Hornbill (RM 10.90).

Honey B (RM 6.90). Finally I found it!!!!! I love this fizzy honey drink.

If you think eating clean and healthy means having to eat tasteless food, think again. When prepare the right way, it can be as delicious as the poke bowls at Paperfish. No matter if you are looking to have a clean and healthy meal (oh, each of their poke bowl has less than 450 Calories!!!) or want to have a fuss-free meal, Paperfish is the place you want to be.
