Asian restaurant to open first Alabama outlet in Huntsville

September 8, 2017 by  

The first of a new Asian eatery chain will open its first U.S. location in October in Georgia, and the following month, one of the chain’s restaurants will be opening in Huntsville.

An announcement by Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate Group stated that Huntsville will welcome Alabama’s first Oshi Poké Bowl & Sushi in November. As a dish, Poké originated in Hawaii and typically is made up of fresh seafood – a sauce with vegetables and seasoning.

Digital business cards for the new establishment will show its location to be on the bottom floor among the retail shops of The Avenue, a mixed use city block-sized development at 201 Jefferson Street.

The team of Jackie Chang, Paul Liu, Tom Huang and Min Liu created the Oshi eatery. Overseeing the Huntsville restaurant will be Min Liu, who is quoted as saying:

“In Japanese, ‘oshi’ means great taste. We have watched the trend spread in the restaurant industry and we realized that it works well. One of the best features of the poké bowl is that everything is customizable and countless combinations of flavors and textures can be experienced.”

In addition to its build-your-own poké bowls, the restaurant will also offer signature bowls using recipes from the award-winning chef Chang, and sushi dishes. Plans are underway to work with local craft breweries to offer the restaurant’s customers a selection of beers.
