A Curated Collection
We’ve culled a list of our favorite foods, adventures and aloha wear.
It’s not pronounced poke, like a jab, but PO-kay, as in the Hawaiian staple that has been around for centuries. In its simplest form, poke is composed of raw, bite-sized cubes of fish—usually ahi—which are seasoned with Hawaiian sea salt. Here are some of our favorites. (1) Clams spiced with red and yellow chili flakes. (2) Tako (octopus) seasoned with ginger and garlic. (3) Salmon mixed with tomatoes and onions. The combinations and incarnations may be infinite but the classic ahi poke will always be a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
