Nation’s Leading Poke Franchise Introduces Newest Menu Item in Partnership with Top Chef Alum, Chef Seldon Simeon, Heating Up at Locations Nationwide
Irvine, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Summer has officially come to an end, but things are still heating up at Pokeworks. The leading poke franchise announced today the launch of its newest menu item, the Spicy Sichuan Bowl, now available at locations across the nation. The new spice-centric dish was created in collaboration with the award-winning alumnus of Bravo’s Top Chef and owner of Tin Roof in Maui, Chef Sheldon Simeon.
Featuring a house-made sauce that consists of red chili peppers, peppercorns and honey infused soy, the flavor-packed Spicy Sichuan Bowl is topped with spicy crushed peanuts to add a satisfying crunch. The fusion of these ingredients creates a tingly sensation that transforms taste buds, offering guests a taste they can feel.
“The Spicy Sichuan Bowl is for spice-seeking foodies who look for an exciting, effervescent dining experience,” said celebrity Chef-collaborator, Sheldon Simeon. “Pokeworks gives me the freedom to implement the Hawaiian traditions I grew up with and fuse them with my passion for flavor and spice. We are excited to turn up the heat with the Spicy Sichuan Bowl to offer guests across the nation not only a meal, but an experience in every bite.”
