POKE - IN PARTICULAR POKE TO YOUR TASTE
You go to this little shop (it's in Hilo), Solomon comes out to greet you and
voila - a big bowl of poke - TO YOUR TASTE (extra garlic, ginger, kokui nuts, YUMO)
Oh and for those of you not familiar with the term (poke), it's just like sashimi (raw fish) but usually comes with a mild sauce, seaweed, kokui nuts, etc. A staple here in Hawaii.
Plus Solomon is so sweet, he always gives you more than you pay for!!!
Yeah you "could" go to Safeway and get poke and get more variety, but why would you?
Thanks Solomon, that's the way to make people keep comin' back 8-)
