Aloha Poke, Man! — New & Exclusive to Market District!
Poke (Pronounced like “Okay” with a “P”) is a Hawaiian word meaning “to cut,” and started out as a way for local fisherman to take their catch, some salt, and oil, and combine them to create a fresh and healthy meal.
As time went on, local Hawaiians started to add ingredients, like kukui nuts and limu seaweed. Traditionally, poke it is made of ahi tuna, (A.K.A. yellowfin tuna); however, other Hawaiian fish such as marlin and albacore ale also popular.
Never tried poke? At Market District, we are excited to bring you Wasabi Ahi, Shoyu Ahi, and Albacore with chili sauce. All of these are simplistic and made with yellowfin or albacore tuna and an accompanying sauce. Find them in our Freshly Prepared Foods department and get hooked!
