Foodies with allergies and dietary restrictions, your time is now! You may feel like an afterthought at restaurants focusing on the meaty or glutinous, but High Tide Poke owner Kenny Munic has heard your cries. And he’s come to rescue you from your boring, allergen free desk lunch.
Munic, who comes from a long line of Chicago restaurateurs, was concerned that he couldn’t find a tasty option that focused on quality while still catering to those with food allergies. From this dilemma, High Tide Poke was created. High Tide is dairy free, nut free and gluten free, plus all sauces, desserts and ingredients are prepped fresh, in house daily.
In addition to keeping you healthy and fit, High Tide goes out of their way to ensure their practices are sustainable. From fish that is responsibly obtained, to fruits and veggies that are purchased locally whenever possible – High Tide does everything they can to ensure they’re not harming the one world we have, or the one body you have.
We asked Fooda customers their favorite, and the obvious winner was the Ahi Classic. It’s made with marinated ahi tuna, mango, pineapple, avocado, and pickled ginger. The ingredients are piled on a bed of white rice and topped with a house made spicy mayo drizzled and toasted sesame seeds. It’s served with a side of wasabi and a lime wedge.
Though they offer hand crafted combinations like the Ahi Classic, their menu offers something for everybody. You can order a bowl, salad or wrap (don’t call it a sushirito though) and fill it with your favorite sushi-grade fish, rice, quinoa, zoodles and other fresh toppings and sauces. Or, let them craft one of their signature combinations for you.
Poke not your thing? They also have a build-your-own salad bar and fresh-pressed juice station called Salad Daze. Salad Daze complements their Hawaiian-inspired poke with a full array of toppings and proteins—and everything’s made from scratch and in house.
If you happen to visit on cheat day, or are just in the mood for a sweet treat, High Tide even makes dessert from scratch. Featuring hand-dipped rice bars, baked goods and all-natural fruit pops made in store daily. Why not end your lunch on a sweet note?
High Tide Poke has been serving up the freshest Poke to happy Fooda Customers for almost a year now, and have quickly become a fan favorite. To try one of their delicious poke creations visit one of their Fooda Popups, order it direct to your office via our catering program, or visit them at their brick and mortar location in the loop Monday – Friday at 203 N.
