Get Fish as Fresh as it Comes

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - DINING & ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
