At a glance, this seems more like something to be found in Asia rather than here, and it is not wrong to think so, as located across the Pacific, this Hawaiian appetizer has been heavily influenced by the Asian; especially the Japanese from which the idea of the raw fish probably came about in the first place.
Hawaiian cuisine, was also a blend of many different cultures; which slowly formed the identity of the local cuisine and varieties found on the islands.
I was fascinated with the Poke; and enjoyed this interesting and innovative mix which even included some sticky rice at the bottom.
The blends of the condiments made the poke taste so delicious and lip smacking that I found myself enjoying the small portion served; which was a sample handed out by a new cafe.
This is a must try if one is in Hawaii; for this is truly a food which is unique and if that is not enough, this is a dish which dates long back to its origins and has been a traditional food ever since.
The poke has evolved since, and nowadays innovative vendors are making various types of pokes; including other forms of seafood; prawns, squids, octopus into the mixture.
A Poke, anyone?
I think I saved some for you guys, here, a photo for you to relish in ;)
