Get Fish as Fresh as It ComesBig Island
You’ve seen locals digging into a dish that resembles cubes of raw fish—this is poke (“poh-keh”), 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 thisdish up at local grocery stores such as KTA, Foodland, Sack N Save or fish markets like Da Poke Shack in Kailua-Kona or Suisan in Hilo. If you want, you can also get a side of white or brown rice.
Visit Poke Shack at 76-6246 Alii Dr. in Kailua-Kona or Suisan at 1965 Kamehameha Ave in Hilo.
