Fresh, made-to-order Ahi Poke: Diced fresh raw Ahi (Tuna), Ogo (seaweed), White Onion, Green Onion, Hawaiian Chili Pepper, Shoyu & Sesame Oil, $12.00/lb.
It’s true. The best. That’s their slogan, and I agree!
Most places that sell Poke usually have it made in advance in large service pans on display in refrigerator cases, deli style. The problem with this is, if you don’t get there early when it was just made, after hours of sitting, the salt and/or shoyu in the marinade tends to eventually “cook” the delicate raw fish, causing it to stiffen and lose that buttery texture. The onions get soggy too. Eventually, the moisture in the fish escapes and makes the marinade watery, and just overall not good Poke.
