So my events job finished and I had the best time working with Achmea! Now I’m working full time with Poke.
Our team had grown and we were in a great place, ready for the crazy summer rush! We went out a couple of weeks ago for our Christmas party and boy was is good! We first of all tasted the new cocktails on offer in the restaurant; pina colada and a gin, mint and coconut concuction. It was such a tough job, but it had to be done by someone 😜 Then the team packed up and went down to Churrasco, a little bit tipsy by this point, which is a Brazilian barbecue restaurant.
Here’s the team outside the shop:
- Beef brisket with a cheese sauce
- Honey soy chicken
- Griddled haloumi
- Brazilian cheese balls
- Garlic steak
- Chicken hearts
We ate so much we felt sick, but it was well worth it!
The next event on the cards was our Tiki night; an event to celebrate these new cocktails and that we were opening an extra day. All our regulars attended, there was an abundance of drinks and poke available. We served:
- Crab with wasabi mayonnaise
- Tuna with a chilli shoyu dressing
- Salmon with a ponzu jelly
- Salmon with a sweet sesame dressing
Here’s a photo of the evening:
One morning, the owner of the restaurant asked if I could prepare a poke and I was so excited (it was kind of a big deal). So I decided to make: garlic prawns, lime aioli, red onion, edamame beans, celery and dill.
Here’s a pic of my creation:
