Tryst Tuna Poké in Crispy Wonton Cups

Tryst Tuna Poké in Crispy Wonton Cups

Tryst on Beach Drive in Downtown St. Pete is one of our most visited hangouts to eat, drink, and people-watch. One of our favorite appetizers is the Tuna Poké. Executive Chef Jon Robben created a special version of his recipe for St. Petersburg Foodies. The Tuna Poké is usually served in a glass with a rice crisp. In this version, we leave out the rice crisp, and serve in crispy wonton cups. Check out the video here, and view the full recipe below.
