 Rubio’s® Restaurants, known for its uniquely delicious coastal cuisine and popularizing the fish taco, has announced the addition of sustainable, wild-caught ahi poke to its menu. This is the first time ahi poke will be available at Rubio’s, demonstrating the company’s efforts to expand its seafood recipes beyond shrimp and beer-battered, grilled and blackened fish. Beginning Wednesday, October 18, guests are invited to try the Ahi Poke Bowl for a limited time.

Developed by co-founder Ralph Rubio and the culinary team, the Ahi Poke Bowl features raw, sashimi-grade ahi poke topped with tamari based ginger soy, for a fresh flavor profile. Placed atop a bed of citrus rice and romaine lettuce, the ahi poke is topped with traditional Asian-inspired ingredients such as edamame and sesame seeds, and then paired with unique Baja-inspired twists, such as crispy tortilla strips, fresh Hass avocado slices and Rubio’s signature creamy chipotle sauce. For added heat, guests can try the bowl “spicy-style” with Fresno Chili peppers.

In addition to the Ahi Poke Bowl, Rubio’s is bringing back seasonal favorites Langostino Lobster Burrito and Langostino Lobster Two Taco Plate for a limited time. The sustainable Langostino Lobster is drizzled with warm basil butter and has been a fan favorite for more than 10 years. Guests looking for a little variety can also enjoy the Langostino Lobster in Rubio’s new Surf and Turf Burrito. The Surf and Turf Burrito features Langostino Lobster and marinated allnatural steak, toasted cheese, avocado slices, citrus rice, salsa fresca and chipotle white sauce wrapped in a flour tortilla.

The Langostino Lobster Burrito actually is one of my favorites! I was so excited to see that it has returned even if obnly for a short time! You just have to try it! But, I also tried the Ahi Poke Bowl and it is very good!
