Following the unofficial start of summer, the days are starting to heat up in Missouri. On a sunny afternoon or a steamy evening, sometimes just the idea of eating something hot can send you into a sweat. Raw dishes like poke offer a more refreshing alternative that is packed with both protein and flavor. If you're looking for a tasty dish to cool down with today in Columbia, we suggest the poke stack from Park.
The poke stack is a delicious pile of sushi-grade ahi tuna marinated in a sesame and citrus dressing. The stack is topped with fresh avocado, cilantro, nori and microgreens. If you are looking to add a little crunch, the dish is served with crispy wonton chips; crush them up and add them to the top, or use them to scoop the stack right into your mouth.
The poke stack is a small plate, but you can get it as your own meal or share it with someone before diving into an entree. Park is offering its menu for carryout, as well as limited dine-in service.
