Aside from the miles of white-sand beaches and world-renowned surf breaks, one of the biggest draws of Waikiki is the food scene–a unique and exciting mix of east meets west... What exactly is poke? “Poke,” pronounced POH-KAY, means “to cut crosswise into pieces” in Hawaiian, and is a simple concoction of cubed raw ahi tuna or salmon with a bit of shoyu (soy sauce), limu (vitamin-packed algae), crushed kukui nuts, avocado, sesame oil and green onions. The ever-popular poke bowl includes white rice and is often accompanied by a generous sprinkling of furikake (a Japanese seasoning that consists of dried and ground fish, sesame seeds, chopped seaweed, sugar and salt), along with a spicy and tangy aoli.
