I don’t think I’ve mentioned it on the blog before, but I’m a bit of a foodie. Going to Hawaii I was expecting amazing sites and OK food; I was so wrong about that last part. Both were amazing, but the stand out food favorite was poke pronounced /poʊˈkeɪ/. It’s basically raw fish that’s been marinated in various sauces and served over rice, some of our favorites were the spicy Ahi, wasabi ahi, and shoyu ahi.
Luckily for us we were able to have poke at two of the best places on the island, both of which were pointed out by the folks from Pedals Bike Tours. One is Ono Seafood. It was outside of Waikiki, a little over a mile walk from our hotel, but the walk was very much worth it. The other great poke shop we stopped at was a convenience store on the north shore. Since Honolulu is the only city on the island, the locals all shop at convenience stores. Most of these stores are family run and usually have some house made food that they’re well known for. So if you’re in the north shore, you should check one out.
Without further ado, delicious poke is below.
