Mighty Fine Poke at Tamura’s Fine Wine & Liquors

The mainland United States might only now be figuring out what the heck poke is. Hawaii, though, has had a love affair with this simple dish for some time now.

One of my favorite places to go for poke is…a liquor store? Yep. Tamara’s Fine Wine & Liquors is perfect for those looking for ono grinds (delicious food) to go with their pau hana (after work gatherings) beverage of choice.


They have a nice selection of fresh poke to choose from.


Many locals like their poke simple…shoyu poke to go, please.


Want something different? Try the king crab poke with wasabi and masago (fish roe).



My personal favorite is Tamura’s take on spice ahi poke. A half-pound of spicy ahi poke over rice makes for the perfect lunch.
