Good Time Poké is San Diego’s first grab-and-go poké shop offering different versions of the traditional Hawaiian fare. The dishes – from tako (octopus) to ahi (yellowfin tuna) are created by Executive Chef Brian Redzikowski. During the daytime, when the space operates as Good Time Poké, the menu will also include custom raw fish and rice bowls, plus kombucha on tap. Pictured here is the Big-eye Tuna, which comes with bonito flake, pickled ginger and sesame.

In the evening, the space will transform into The Grass Skirt, the latest tiki-themed spot to open in San Diego as the tiki culture revival continues to trend. The cool cocktail program at this tiki watering hole will be spearheaded by Beverage Director Steven Tuttle.

“Tiki is something we’re pretty passionate about here, said SDCM co-owner Matt Spencer, talking about the debut of The Grass Skirt. This cocktail is dubbed the Tiki Iniki. The Grass Skirt includes a lot of traditional tiki design influences, including fire pit tables.
