Da Poke Shack

On the advice of the folks at Greenwell Farm, I headed closer to the beach and toward the very long line at Da Poke Shack in order to get a taste of the island’s best poke. Since you can find poke, good ones, everywhere it is really hard to say who really has the best, but I definitely thought the one I got was pretty darn good!

Poke is made up of sliced ahi tuna (traditionally although they make other kinds including octopus) with green onions, chili peppers, sea salt, and shoyu (soy sauce). Then things like sesame oil, roasted kukui nut or seaweed can be added in different varieties as well as sriracha to make it a spicy poke.

Poke was something I enjoyed over and over during my week in Hawaii, I literally could not get enough of it!

How about you? Are you a fan of poke? Where is your favorite?

    You know, I never tried poke either time I went to Hawaii — now I feel like I missed out!

    I love poke! And now that I’m in Hawaii, it shows up everywhere from new hire orientation (hello poke nachos) to the grocery store, to bbqs to our employee cafeteria.

    This sounds like something my husband would get if we ever went to Hawaii. Thank you for sharing.
