When Ricardo Salcedo heard about poke, he wanted to bring it to Houston because it was so different.

Now he’s behind Pokii Eatery, at 12153 Katy Freeway, which is slated to open in February. He’s done his research, and he’s convinced stand-alone poke restaurants will do well in the Bayou City.

“I’m excited to see other places opening up,” Salcedo said. “It introduces other things to Houston. (The city is) a melting pot of different cuisines and styles. It’s a great feeling knowing we’re part of a great movement.”
