Ono Seafood (Hawaii 2018): Ahi Poke
No trip to Honolulu would be complete without a healthy dose of poke. One of the best places to find fresh quality poke is Ono Seafood. Ever since our first visit to this hole-in-the-wall poke shop, we make a point to coming back whenever we’re in Waikiki.
It can be a bit difficult to find as the shop is set back from the street (on our first visit here, we walked right by without even noticing it). Located on Kapahulu, a few blocks away from Leonard’s, it’s walkable from Waikiki or you can just hop on a bus to get here.
We picked up the Shoyu Ahi Poke and the Spicy Ahi Poke ($20/lb). You can also get this served on rice but we wanted to save room in our tummies because we had a lot of other poke places to try out (not to mention a trip Leonard’s for some malasadas).
If you’re looking for a classic Hawaiian version of poke, make sure to try the Shoyu Ahi – it’s quite flavourful but the freshness of the ahi really stands out. The Spicy Ahi isn’t overly spicy but the creamy sauce is soooo good! There’s a small seating area just in front of the store but it can get quite busy here during the peak hours.
