Latin American-inspired bowl available at chef-driven, California-inspired poke concept from April 12 to June 30
From April 12 to June 30, the chef-driven, California-inspired poke concept will feature the one-of-a-kind bowl, handcrafted by Sweetfin Culinary Director Andrea Cuellar. Sweetfin’s Cilantro Jalapeño Bowl was inspired by the Latin flavors of Guatemala and Mexico.
Serving as the perfect light, refreshing option as the weather heats up, the zesty, scratch-made bowl comes with a choice of protein and is topped with a homemade cilantro-lime-jalapeño sauce, pickled Fresno chilis, cucumber, avocado, shaved red onion and pineapple. It’s then served over cilantro bamboo rice and garnished with market radish and crushed plantain chips.
“We’re excited to add more tastes from around the world to our menu,” said Sweetfin Culinary Director Andrea Cuellar. “The Cilantro Jalapeño Bowl is a fusion of several cultures and flavors, resulting in a truly unique offering that our Sweetfans haven’t experienced yet. We look forward to unveiling this new item and continuing to give our guests more ways to enjoy our fresh, accessible and naturally craveable dishes.”
Well-known for popularizing Hawaiian poke in the United States, Sweetfin was one of the first standalone poke concepts outside of Hawaii. Sweetfin’s chef-driven, 100% gluten-free menu uses premium quality ingredients, sustainable fish and homemade preparations for all of its sauces, bases and toppings. As a California-inspired concept, Sweetfin’s menu takes culinary inspiration from a number of different cultures ranging from Japanese to Korean. To learn more about Sweetfin, visit sweetfin.com.
Since 2015, Sweetfin has been on a mission to fuel life through freshness with its healthful, gluten-free and chef-driven poke and plant-based bowls. The fast-casual restaurant serves both customizable and Signature Bowls from a menu created by former Top Chef contestant Chef Dakota Weiss and provides a culinary experience that is fresh, accessible and naturally craveable. After visiting the Islands, founders Alan Nathan, Seth Cohen and Brett Nestadt were inspired to bring the authentic Hawaiian dish to Los Angeles, but with a uniquely Californian twist. The brand currently owns and operates 14 locations across Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego, with several more in the pipeline. Sweetfin was named to QSR’s 40/40 List for 2022: America’s Hottest Startup Fast Casuals, was recognized as a “Breakout Brand” by Nation’s Restaurant News, was named the best poke concept in LA by LA Magazine and has been featured in Bloomberg, Forbes, The Hollywood Reporter, GQ, Inc. Magazine, Vogue and more. For more information, visit sweetfin.com and follow Sweetfin on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
