9 Poke Places to Try in Hawaii

In Hawaii, poke has been a staple for generations



Published:

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:
