the story behind kaisin.
we were roommates on vacation in southeast asia when we, by chance (or was it destiny?), tried poké for the first time. it was everything we had always craved for a quick, healthy lunch – fresh, flavorful, nutritious, and, most importantly, delicious. we immediately fell in love with this dish and wondered where we could find it once we returned home to zurich.
to our surprise, we couldn’t find a single poke store in zurich. moreover, we had always felt that there weren’t enough quick and healthy lunch options for all us busy bees running around town.
so, we decided to do something about it. with hardly any money but with tons of passion, an enthusiastic team and hard work, we opened the first store in the summer of 2017 as a pop-up near the zurich main station.
we were finally able to share the dish we loved so much in asia with you, our friends and family in switzerland, and we were overwhelmed to see that you love it as much as we do.
a few years later, we now serve our delicious poke to hundreds of happy customers every day in three different locations around switzerland – two in central zurich, and one in basel on the campus of novartis. we are so very grateful for your support and loyalty over the past two years, and we promise to keep working hard to earn it.
