This Tiny Shop In Hawaii Serves Poke To Die For

There is perhaps no dish more uniquely Hawaiian than poke, a raw fish salad that usually consists of cubed aku (an oily tuna), he’e (octopus), or ahi (yellowfin tuna) marinated with sea salt, soy sauce, sesame oil, limu seaweed and chili powder. The delicious dish is often served as an appetizer and is currently taking over the mainland, though Hawaii obviously still does it best. And, let’s be honest, there is nowhere that serves better Poke than Kailua-Kona’s Da Poke Shack.

Eating poke at 9 a.m. is normal, right? Well, if it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right. If Da Poke Shack isn’t on your Hawaiian food bucket list, add it immediately, along with these 15 joints that serve up Hawaii’s best poke.
