If you haven’t gone for a “Poke Bowl” you don’t know what you’re missing and I highly recommend that (right after you read this) you drop what your’re doing and head for the nearest poke bowl shop and start eating!  Poke is the Hawaiian term for marinated raw fish (typically but not necessarily Ahi tuna) served on a bed of rice and poke bowl shops are springing up all across the mainland.  If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, this would be it.  Our local girl Aina takes you through a little tour of poke and fish choices in Hawaii.  Of course when you get here, make a beeline for any of the local poke sources (any supermarket will do!) and enjoy.

About the Author:

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.
