The truck looks super sketchy but the food was great. Fish was very fresh and they have authentic sticky rice. Everything we had was great. Fish of the day was ahi

We stopped to pick up some local fresh fish. They were helpful in our making our selections and we walked away with mahi and shrimp. The shrimp were the sweetest we have ever had and the mahi was so fresh and delicious!

Tiny shack serving delicious and fresh poke. Super nice (although slightly slow) service. Poke was fresh--some were better seasoned than others. Limited sides.

You could easily drive by this place. Really, it doesn't look like anything. But when you stop, and eat there… There's just nothing like it. To be blunt – if you don't eat here, you're an idiot. Note: if you like poke/raw stuff, it's in...More
