There aren’t a lot of places to go for Hawaiian food in Philly, but Poi Dog is your best bet. And while they do have a few hot dog options (all of which are good), our favorite things here are the rice plates, which you can mix and match with things like mochi nori fried chicken and pickled red cabbage. They also make good poke bowls and everything can be taken to go. When you get sick of the Sweetgreen order you’ve been placing every day since you started your job in Rittenhouse, stop here for a better weekday lunch
Poi Dog is permanently closed.
