The Hip Fish
The Hip Fish, the funniest fish
The Hip Fish is a small, unpretentious place where we find one of the latest trends: the poké. Lately it seems that raw food attracts us like a magnet. Ceviches, sushis, sashimis and now poké. It is the most novel and apparently this typical Hawaiian food is causing fury in the US and little by little it is already doing it in the City.
This trend has not gone unnoticed by the brave young people who are launching this meeting point of healthy food and take away in the most progressive district of Barcelona, in Gracia.
But what are we going to find in The Hip Fish? Poké Bowl, as we said, but also poké salad and Sushi Burrito. Three models that can end up becoming many dishes because they use a very easy formula to "customize" your food. As if it were a T-shirt, you choose between S, M and L depending on your hunger. The size will allow you to put more or less ingredients in your poké bowl. So by trying, you can find the perfect dish of super foods.
You choose a rice or quinoa base for the Poké Bowl or mixum or kale for the Poké Salad. To this base we must add the protein among its 7 proposals, 7 types of different marinades, 12 accompaniments, 6 sauces and 5 special touches to top. Almost impossible not to get the perfect dish for you!!.
This is how you prepare a good bowl of raw and nutritionally perfect fish suitable for Flexiterians, Crudiveganos or celiac.
But the thing does not stop there, because The Hip Fish also gives you the possibility, following the same formula, to take your own combination in another way: in a Sushi burrito. The name already says it all. Japan and Mexico ... How to eat typical Asian food and typical Latin food in the same dish? This way you get the sushi burrito, a mega sushi roll, ideal for those who are in a hurry or who do not want to get into a local and prefer to eat on the street. The fusion is not only in the form but also in the ingredients, since inside this giant maki you can find salmon, cucumber or jalapeños.
Depending on the season we can also find some soups or creams sporadically. And let's not forget their desserts, which although they are not too many, are good and homemade.
In short, one of the latest news in Barcelona that is striking. Super food for all tastes accompanied by a good craft beer whose price allows you to repeat without having to scratch your pocket too much. And for all tastes or food trends. You have no excuse not to go and, of course, show it to everyone in instagram. There have already more than 100,000 publications with the #pokebowl hashatag.
