Coral Meets The Mayor Of Malibu
Zuma Jay aka the Mayor of Malibu holding baby Coral while her parents shopped for gear for the restaurant. Our custom surfboard lighting feature is actually a Zuma Jay surfboard from the Mayor’s surf shop (Zuma Jay’s) which he has run for decades. Next time you are in Malibu stop by Jay’s shop and tell him that baby Coral from Zumapoke sent you!
Zumapoke and Lush Ice is ohana owned and operated by husband and wife team Dustin and Rachael Ryen, and our daughter Coral. Zumapoke has been a lifelong dream of ours, made possible by the generosity of our parents, the sale of a family farm, and our life savings. By opening in Davis we have become stakeholders in a community very dear to us. This agricultural community is very important to us since Rachael’s family are local rice farmers (we actually source rice from our farms when possible) and because her family can trace back its roots in Yolo county over 150 years. Zumapoke strives to be a meeting place and gathering spot for students and locals alike, and hope that we bring a bit of Aloha spirit to the downtown core. We deeply admire Hawaiian culture and food and wanted to see this traditional dish become a staple on the mainland as it is in the islands. Zumapoke is one of the few poke shops to respect the traditional format of poke (pronounced “poh-kay”) and serve it pre-marinated. This allows us to infuse the flavors of the islands into every poke and serve a dish that can only be replicated in Hawa’ii. Our poke might be traditional, but our shop certainly is not! Please stop by to see the many creative additions we have on the menu, like poke tacos, that allow us to impart a bit of the California spirit into this old-world food. Aloha!
