Hawaiian poké outposts are popping up all over the country with their health-conscious bowls and salads; this simple, traditional, Hawaiian dish is fresh, colorful and delicious. A Primer on Hawaiian Poké. We ate Ahi poke, octopus poke, crab poke, oyster poke, mussel poke and several other Hawaiian fish varieties. Our favorite, by far, was the Ahi Poke.

Rich, tender, sashimi grade Ahi tuna dressed with simple ingredients to allow the essence of the raw fish to shine. Poke (pronounced poh-kay) is the bowl of the moment.Like so many kinds of cuisines before it, from Mexican to Mediterranean, the traditional Hawaiian. Aloha Kitchen Cookbook: This classic ahi poke bowl recipe hails from my friend Alana Kysar’s new cookbook Aloha Kitchen [affiliate link],which is a beautiful celebration of local Hawaiian cuisine and culture.. Having grown up in Maui, Alana does an amazing job of weaving Hawaiian history (and how its food culture has been shaped) with more than 85 recipes for local Hawaiian food.

Pronounced “poke-ay,” poke is a salad of cubed raw fish — often tuna, but the sky’s the limit — typically flavored with soy sauce, sesame, seaweed, chiles and inamona (roasted candlenuts). Hawaiian Poke is one a rare poke place that its price includes everything you see on the menu board. Thats right, everything including avocado, mango, etc. Extra cost for more fish or crab meat.

I ordered a medium poke bowl that comes with 3 scoops of your choice of seafood protein (see menu). I enjoyed my poke bowl that consisted of organic. Poke / p oʊ ˈ k eɪ / (Hawaiian for “to slice” or “cut crosswise into pieces”; sometimes stylized Poké to aid pronunciation, also called Poké Bowl) is diced raw fish served either as an appetizer or as a main course and is one of the main dishes of Native Hawaiian cuisine.Traditional forms are aku (skipjack tuna) and heʻe (octopus). Heʻe (octopus) poke is usually called by its Japanese.

Poke delivers the freshness of a sit-down sushi bar with the convenience of take-away fast food. In Hawaii, you can buy it by the pound in big grocery stores or little corner markets, stash it in your cooler, and take it to the beach. You eat it with chopsticks out of a bowl or cup, often accompanied by sweet white rice.

The word poke simply means “chunk” in Hawaiian. That said, in the past poke was typically any meat or seafood that is cut into small chunks and marinated.

  • We just hit the Superette this week for the Shoyu….Freaking awesome. If you’re on the North Shore, make a special trip. You’ll be glad you did. Just a kid from Kahuku….. 😉

  • Thank you for sharing the recipe! Maui is still the best island to go to, been there several times. Kihei is also a nice town, don’t forget to try the Malasadas and ululani’s shaved-ice when you are visiting Maui.

  • 8:57 Don’t eat tuna every day, 2-3 meals a week. Because it may contain more mercury than other fish. https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/mercury-in-tuna#frequency

  • Mark you making me hungry!!!!!, have you ever gone to Tanioke’s in Waipahu, it is the bomb, but the way you went eat that poke was like one true camp with the rice to poke ratio, lol loved it

  • Al0ha Daniel! My family loves poke. Sushi grade tuna is hard to come by in Mississippi so I’ve had to substitute with what’s fresh. There are lots of poke recipes to try when you get back home. Salmon, shrimp, crab, octopus, mussels just to name a few of easy to find seafood you can use for poke.

  • you’re probably well aware of the Japanese influence in Hawai’i history… No matter what ethnic background you are, if you grew up here, you went to Japanese Okazuya (japanese delicatessens) for your school ‘field trip’ lunches… I used to go to the one next to St. Louis Drive Inn… (St. Louis High School is where Heisman award winner Marcus Mariota attended as well as former Alabama qb Tua Tagovaiola….). love your videos!

  • In Africa we grow hibiscus flowers all over the land in Africa tropical experience but I never deal with hibiscus flowers and I am a lover of coconut.

  • Mark hey there…watch ur vidio’s…waiting for u to take a trip to South Carolina and Georgia for our world famous bbq and southern cuisine…keep fooding bro

  • I stay as far away from Oahu as I can when I go to Hawaii. I can see and experience all that garbage back home. I want to get the hell away from people when I am in Hawaii. It is getting harder and harder to do with the amount of imbecile tourists flooding the islands each year, but Oahu is basically disgusting and draws in the worst tourists ever.

  • Hey Mark I love watching all your videos but when you came to Oahu my home town it just made it more enjoyable to watch because I know and ate all the same places bro keep doing what you doing cant wait for the next Oahu food tour video stay safe and healthy Aloha ����

Thanks to you…YeSss…I would be so willinG to try thiS dish!!! Your humour and insights are Contagious! Happi Summer fellow foodie!✌����������������⚘��⚘

  • I grew up and lived in Honolulu, Hawaii (heaven!!!) for ten 10 years then I moved away and now I live in San Diego, California. My family are still in Hawaii (Paradise!!!) I always love Hawaii and that’s is the ONE place I always wanna come back to. Anyway, Poke is one of my favorite food and I am still not sure how to make it. So I found your video and I have to say you ARE HILARIOUS! I think you are so genuinely funny and delighted that you should be a comedian!!! I love everything in your video and got a good laugh at it ��. Mahalo for making this video and hope you and your family had a wonderful time in Maui. I will give this recipe a try. Aloha!

  • It looks delicious but i think I’m not going to like eating huge chunks of raw fish. Sashimi is great because the fish is thinly sliced and on top of some rice, easy to eat.

  • Aloha, wow the food i miss it alot i lived in Honolulu for about very close to 10 years i loved local foods of every kind now I am on mainland u.s. but got plan to be moving back to Hawaii not sure of date yet but planning it. That is when I will grab local foods again can’t wait

  • Is your dad vegetarian or pescatarian, you know only eats seafood and no meat? Only cos your mum made salad qith fish sauce in it.

  • MY HOME TOWN!!! I worked right next to the airport doing graphic arts and printing. Man this is a throw back. Been 4 years since I’ve been home

  • His eating face matches his integrity for his work. I watch him because of his enthusiasm, even though at times he doesn’t use words to describe (excitement and appreciation on his part), and so unless you are into zombies that eat human flesh this is better (lifeless vs vibrant, lol). Zombies are dead, he’s not. GOD bless you Mark Wiens, Ying Wiens, and Micah Wiens and ohana! Keeping you all in prayer for the Lord’s protection over you all.

  • How wonderful it was to see Mark and his son Micha sharing his ice treat, just puts a special little touch of bondship between father and son. He is a gorgeous little boy. All the best from Australia

  • Loved the video, as always:) I took a stab at submitting Korean subtitles so your parents and grandma can fully understand the video. Maybe it’ll bring in some Korean people, too!

  • In the same parking lot you can eat chans buffet if i remember correctly lunch 14$ dinner 17 18 haven’t been there in a couple of years. Its like a panda Express, with a little of local dishes

  • I visited to Kahuku Superette last week. I ordered Shoyu Poke and Tako poke. It was soooooooo amazing taste. Specially, I really love their Shoyu poke sauce because it is really fantastic poke sauce and perfect match with tuna. I think it is the best poke sauce.

  • ??? The hawaii breakfast looks like the philipino breakfast, they have exactly the same stuff… I had one of those in California for $5, and it said it was philipino… Hmm…

  • my home town. I miss kahuku superette. there’s also some manapua lunch trucks I remember eating at after school. not sure if the shrimp truck (Giovanni) is there still. thanks Mark good vid.��

  • I did 4 years in san quen penitentiary, my first day out I was craving poke, so i typed it in on youtube and found your video. What I actually discovered was much deeper than food, I saw the smiles on your families faces, and the feeling of love in your home. It made me want to stop selling cocaine, and meth, and start working a honest job to provide for my family. Maybe one day i’ll be able to take my parents to Hawaii for their birthdays!! Cheers man! thanks for the inspiration.
