This story, like most good stories, is an adventure.
It all started with a journey to the North Shore of Oahu to visit old friends and indulge in the sport of kings, my greatest passion—surfing. Tanned and tubed, one becomes pretty hungry.
We all know Philly has the cheesesteak, Texas has big steaks, yada yada. What many don’t know about is Hawaiian poké. On this trip I discovered and immediately fell in love with this dish. After tasting this fresh, delicate, and delicious ensemble of flavors for the first time I was determined to bring this soul-nourishing dish back to the east coast.
Poké Ono serves up authentic surf-inspired Hawaiian Poké Bowls raising the bar for what your taste buds can expect.
What is Poké?
Pronounced (Poh-Kay), it is a Hawaiian word that means to 'cut' or 'slice'. Traditionally, a poké bowl is made with cubed ahi tuna that is marinated and served over a bed of rice.
