Steve Huynh, founder of Steve’s Poké Bar, spent much of his life growing up between Honolulu and Vancouver. Almost half of his family lives in various parts of Oahu, and he shares many childhood memories there – from days at the beach with cousins, adventurous night snorkeling, to learning how to cut whole ahi tuna and perfecting authentic Hawaiian poké from a mix of family recipes and influences from his favourite local poké joints.
Steve’s Poké Bar was born when Steve and his wife Camy, wanted to share their love of Hawaiian poké with fellow Vancouverites. Their love story began in Hawaii in 2010, when Steve and Camy first started dating. Prior to that trip, Camy refused to eat raw fish because of an experience getting sick from eating it as a child. Steve wanted to introduce Camy to the local Hawaiian lifestyle, including poké – the must-try Hawaiian staple, which was the first stop off the plane. That’s when Camy not only started eating raw fish again, but loving and craving poké.
Before 2016, poké was almost non-existent in Vancouver. Now it's amazing to see Steve's childhood comfort food grow and evolve from fusion flavours to poké burritos. How is Steve’s different? Steve wanted to preserve the method and traditional way of serving authentic Hawaiian poké, the way he grew up with poké, with the option of adding various toppings to complete a healthy meal. Steve and Camy’s love of the local Hawaiian lifestyle sparked their desire to open an authentic Hawaiian poké bar. Steve's wife Camy, being an SFU Alumni, decided to make their dream a reality with their first location at Simon Fraser University to serve students first. More locations coming soon!
Steve’s Poké Bar looks forward to spreading aloha and bringing the best poké experience to Vancouverites. If you would like to get poké the Hawaiian way, come see us, and mahalo for sharing your love of poké with us!
