GET REAL. Real, authentic island activities and a real deal, that is.
poke not only at high-end restaurants and
resorts (which have a tendency to overcomplicate — and overprice — it), but also at
takeout stands, roadside trucks, supermarket
counters and tucked in the back of liquor
stores (no joke). If you want to know where
the best poke is, don’t bother asking the concierge, who’ll probably circle you back into
the hotel. Instead, ask the valet who brings
your car around.
Oahu, being the most populous of the

spots. Tamura’s Fine Wines and Liquors gets
its fish fresh daily from the Honolulu Fish
Auction and has five locations: Honolulu,
Wahiawa, Hauula, Kapolei and Kailua. Head
to the back, where you’ll find the poke coun-
ter and a pretty diverse selection, including
proprietary and seasonal recipes (and they
let you sample). Up on the North Shore, poke
bowls derived from an old family recipe
have earned Kahuku Superette a loyal fol-
lowing; in winter you’ll be standing in line
beside locals and pro surfers alike. Back in
Honolulu, Yama’s Fish Market is a mostly
unknown treasure, where you can get true
Hawaiian and local food to accompany its
superb ahi poke. Fresh Catch, with two loca-

Hawaii Island, head for Umeke’s Poke Bowls

Hilo side, it’s Suisan Fish Market, fins down
the freshest fish in East Hawaii. For the Kauai
bound, Ishihara Fish Market in Waimea is the
south shore’s poke stop; on the north shore
it’s Dolphin Restaurant in Hanalei or Kilauea
Fish Market in Kilauea.
If you’re in a hurry, though, you can do what
locals do and hit a Foodland supermarket (or
KTA on Hawaii Island), where, though they
often use frozen fish, they offer a wide selection.
And please, kind reader, take these recommendations seriously; as an island resident who
is not using a pseudonym for his byline, I’m
hazarding my personal safety by divulging this
information, a risk akin to spilling Hawaii’s best
secret surfing spots to Lonely Planet. So enjoy
your poke … just don’t tell ’em I sent you. m
