Just FYI... it's poke with an E, pernounced "poh-keh." There's no diacritical mark because that doesn't exist in the Hawaiian alphabet. Please please please don't just spell it any way you THINK is accurate.
Poke means to slice and that's why the fish is cut up into pieces. Kealoha and I were just talking about the article that addresses this much better than I ever could: http://firstwefeast.com/eat/2016/03/hawaii-chef-has-problems-with-poke-trend
Now that I'm thinking about it though... I don't know why I didn't talk story with them and mention that the spelling was incorrect. Maybe I subconsciously thought it's just an item on the menu, is it a problem worth fixing?
"You have to visit! It's a landmark!"
The energy was amazing in this place, as soon
as I walked in I felt extremely happy (and I didn't even eat the ice cream yet). The presentation, the service and the taste - just the whole experience was sooo 'ono!
When Misha's mama was a kid, she used to buy a scoop of ice cream here for 25 cents!
I'm pretty sure it's the creamiest ice cream I've ever had. Good thing I came here on the last day, I think I would've went to this place every day.
Mahalo nui to this beautiful city!
I came with a very short list of things to do and now have a plan for my next visit here. It was an amazing experience, one I will never forget.
It wouldn't have been as awesome without my sister Misha and her family! Mahalo for letting me stay. Aunty Joan, Aunty Barbra, Chelsea and Sonny - mahalo for giving me advice, it was extremely helpful.
On to LA to surprise my brother from another mama. Keep your fingers crossed that he has no idea that I'm coming, I wanna see him cry at Knott's Berry Farm. 😁😆😊❤️
