Ono Seafood (Hawaii 2017): Classic Hawaiian Poke
Ono Seafood is well named – “ono” in Hawaiian means “delicious” and everything about the fresh seafood poke here screams deliciousness. This little hole-in-the-wall place has been on our must visit list since we first tried them out.
Speaking about our first visit… we totally walked right by this place on our first visit and had to ask for directions because it’s set back from the street and blended in with the other buildings. On our visit this year, we noticed that they’ve put up a bright red paint job so they’re easier to spot now.
Now, you might be wondering why we only ordered 1/4 lb each of the Shoyu and Spicy Ahi considering we like the poke here so much. That was only because we also had plans to try a new poke place nearby (as well as grabbing some donuts from Leonard’s).
Honestly, simplicity at its best. I’ve got nothing against poke bowls with various toppings… but whenever I think of real Hawaiian poke, this is what I dream about.
