Ono Seafood (Honolulu 2015) – Hole-in-the-Wall Poke
It’s true, you can find poke just about anywhere in Hawaii. But, if you’re looking for something special, you’ve got to try this little hole-in-the-wall place called Ono Seafood.
Don’t confuse it with the nearby Ono Hawaiian Foods (although they are quite popular for their authentic Hawaiian cuisine). We dropped by after our visit to Leonard’s Bakery (about a 5 minute walk away) but we walked right by without noticing it. After asking some nice folks at a nearby gas station, we finally found this place in the parking lot of a motel.
There’s a couple of outdoor park benches right in front of the store (which obscures the signage) but not much else for seating.
Their menu is pretty basic… they have either ahi (tuna) or tako (octopus) and you pay by the weight ($18/lb).
We decided to order just the poke by itself… but many people order a poke bowl with rice.
We picked their most popular items… #1 Shoyu Ahi
#2 Shoyu Tako
#7 Spicy Ahi
While I preferred the Shoyu Ahi over the Tako, my favourite was the Spicy Ahi. If you’re in Waikiki and looking for some really tasty ahi poke, this is the place to go.
