I had heard about this place when I grabbed an afternoon Blue Moon at Lava Lava. When traveling I like to find good food off the beaten track. Especially something unique to the area. Melissa at Lava Lava suggested Da Poke Shack and although she had a personal interest her endorsement was confirmed by 3-4 other locals I bounced it off over the next two days. When I mentioned the name of the place people's eyes would get big so I knew it was something special.
To be realistic if you don't like raw fish or sitting at a picnic table (only two) when dining then you may want to look elsewhere but my wife had the pulled pork (she's not a fan of raw fish) and loved it. I did too. They also have chicken but I'll have to try that next time I'm in town.
Personally I sampled several different Poke's and enjoyed them all. Never had anything like it and am bummed that I might have to wait till I come back to have it again. The fish is fresh daily and very high grade Tuna. I actually watched Keoki slice up a new 30 lb cut from scratch. He was super cool by the way and very friendly. I flat out loved the place. The salads were fresh and the rice was cooked perfect, just sticky enough. All priced reasonably. Even the t-shirts.
If you're in the area and want to treat yourself to something special, check out Da Poke Shack. It's worth the trip.
