Get Fish as Fresh as it Comes
You may have seen locals digging into a dish that resembles cubes of raw fish—this is poke (pronounced “poh-keh”), and it is arguably the best way to eat freshly caught ‘ahi (tuna) or tako (octopus). Poke can be raw or smoked and tossed in a variety of sauces, from simple shoyu (soy sauce) to original flavors like wasabi or sesame.
You can pick this dish up at local grocery stores such as KTA, Foodland, Sack N Save or at fish markets like Da Poke Shack in Kailua-Kona or Suisan in Hilo. If you want, you also can get a side of white or brown rice.
Visit Poke Shack at 76-6246 Ali‘i Drive in Kailua-Kona, or Suisan at 1965 Kamehameha Ave. in Hilo.
