Koibito Poké celebrates reopening in Gainey Village
Koibito Poké, known for its fresh Hawaiian poke bowls, reopened its Scottsdale location in Gainey Village last weekend.
To celebrate the reopening, Koibito Poké held a weekend-long event that started from Friday, June 18 through Sunday, June 20. Each day offered customers a different deal. On Sunday, the fast-casual restaurant offered dads a free medium bowl with the purchase of any size bowl and a soft drink for Father’s Day.

The new location of Koibito Poké, owned by Erica and Todd Stottlemyre, has the right square footage needed for the franchise and is more visible to customers. Todd Stottlemyre is a former professional baseball pitcher who played 15 seasons of Major League Baseball, most notably as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays with whom he won two World Series championships in 1992 and 1993. He also played for the Oakland Athletics, St. Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers, and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The restaurant allows customers to build their own bowl following a six-step system where the customer chooses the size of their bowl, the type of rice, protein, sauce, toppings and any additional garnishes.
One example of a build-your-own bowl to try is a fresh spring mix base with shrimp, salmon, sweet chili lime and wasabi aioli sauce, cucumber salad, avocado, edamame and crab mix.
Aside from the build-your-own option, Koibito Poké also offers two featured dishes: the Trio Tuna Bowl and the Koibito Bowl.
The Trio Tuna Bowl is a yummy multitude of flavors topped with the freshest Tuna. The ingredients include white rice, tuna, Hawaiian tuna and spicy tuna mixed in with sweet chili lime sauce and garnished with edamame, cucumbers, sesame seeds and masago.
The Koibito Poké Bowl features salmon, Hawaiian tuna and regular tuna with sriracha aioli and topped with cilantro, edamame, cucumbers, seaweed salad and sesame seeds.
If you’re craving something sweet after eating a tasty poke bowl, the establishment offers frozen soft serve Dole Whip Yogurt for dessert. The dessert is exclusive to the Gainey Village location but will soon be available at other locations.
