Bright, fun and startlingly colorful, the poke bowls at this Capitol Hill spot not only look good, they taste good, too. Unlike the suddenly trendy spots that are all poke, all the time, Sushi Cup offers Japanese and Korean cuisine along with Hawaiian; the various influences prove a perfect match for poke. Sit at one of the tall wooden tables and dive into Off the Shore, a dish filled with tuna, pineapple, mango, Fuji apple, nori and a bright splash of ponzu. The shrimp tempura is an unusual but winning combination of shrimp tempura, crab salad, cream cheese and sweet-spicy sauce. And if you feel like eating your poke with one hand, any of the bowls can also be made into a sushi burrito.
