Paddles Up specializes in poké. What’s poké? Think deconstructed sushi or sushi in a bowl. Poké (pronounced POH-KAY) means “to section, slice, or to cut.” This Hawaiian classic is a very casual meal, that families in Hawaii have been packing on the go for years. Poké has now evolved into trendy rice bowls that are customized per order. This tasty meal is simple: chunks of fresh raw fish, marinated in our in-house handcrafted sauces, packed with all the tasty toppings that you can find on classic sushi rolls, and served on top of a bed of brown rice, white rice, sushi rice, zoodles, or fresh mixed greens.
Paddles Up takes pride in their product quality and freshness. They know that every day matters when it comes to consuming raw fish, so their fish is delivered every day to ensure the freshest product offered in the state. Dan, Jordan, and our Ketchum store manager, Matt Dietz, hand select all of the fish and produce to ensure they meet the highest quality standards that is required at Paddles Up. They keep all of their products under 38 degrees and check that the temperature is maintained at all times. Paddles Up sauces are all made with the finest Aloha Shoyu, imported from Hawaii for an authentic sweet fermented soy sauce taste. Their entire menu is built to accommodate any type of dietary needs. Just ask, and one of the amazing team members will assist you from start to finish. It's the Paddles Up way!
Paddles Up will also provide delivery throughout downtown Ketchum, and catering all throughout the area.
