9 Poke Places to Try in Hawaii

In Hawaii, poke has been a staple for generations

Poke places are popping up all over San Diego, some with their own take on the popular raw fish dish (lookin’ at you poke burritos). There’s even an annual I Love Poke Festival on Shelter Island. But in Hawaii, poke has been a staple for generations. So, if you’re headed to the islands, why not enjoy a poke bowl straight from the source. Here are a few places to try:
