‘Ono Poke Co. | 10142-104 St.
A popular dish in Hawaii, the delicious poke—or raw fish salad—at ‘Ono Poke Co. is sure to please you with a myriad of fresh flavours. Each feature poke was created by Chef Lawrence Hui based on influences he picked up while touring Maui and learning from its chefs. Uncle Tom’s Surf Poke was named after one of those chefs, a combo of ahi tuna with fresh onion, cucumber, and sea asparagus with a spicy tobiko aioli. You can even take home bottles of their addictive Hawaiian Chili Water and bags of fresh baked Taro Chips!
