12 May Poke: the bowl that continues to spark mainland’s fascination with Hawaiian cuisine.
Call it poké. Or correctly, call it poke. Heck, correctly and phonetically, call it poh-kay. This dish — this bowl, technically — continues to spark mainland’s fascination with Hawaiian cuisine.
It has all the trappings of today’s casual zeitgeist: inherently fresh, fast, healthy. It’s refreshing, namely for Hawaiian cuisine in general, unfairly denoted by Spam, and for which stale notions of mid-century luaus still reign supreme.
