Steve Huynh, founder of Steve’s Poké Bar, was born in a Malaysian refugee camp as a result of the Vietnam War. His parents were sponsored to Canada although half of his family lives in various parts of Oahu. He spent much of his life growing up between Vancouver and Honolulu, and he shares many childhood memories there – from days at the beach with cousins, adventurous night snorkeling, to learning how to cut whole ahi tuna and perfecting authentic Hawaiian poké from a mix of family recipes and influences from his favourite local poké joints.
Steve’s Poké Bar was established in 2017 when Steve and his wife Camy, wanted to share their love of traditional Hawaiian poké with fellow Vancouverites. Less than three years later, there are now 6 locations and 7 more opening by mid 2020. Steve’s Poké Bar has consistent 4.6-4.9 stars across Google, Yelp, Groupon and Facebook platforms, voted best poke in Vancouver, and named Yelp's Top 10 Places to Eat in Canada 2019.
