Did already we already mention poke is blowing up all over? I think we did. But here's more proof.
Sushi Zone, an all-you-can-eat sushi joint in Mission Viejo, has rebranded itself as Fins, a restaurant specializing in poke bowls where you can choose your flavor (either a house spicy mayo vinaigrette, a ponzu blend, or sesame shoyu), and your fish (salmon or tuna), your base (spring mix, white rice, or brown rice) to make poke bowls of your chosen size (either a regular for $8.95, or a large for $11.95). Extras like avocado, masago, or octopus can be added for a $1.
But Sushi Zone's transformation to Fins doesn't stop there; the new restaurant also offers an unagi sandwich, white fish tempura tacos, Korean BBQ bowls, and because they've got the tortillas and Korean BBQ already: a Korean BBQ taco.
