tough to just stumble on this palce but so glad I found it. I had an ahi bowl made to order by the owner right in front of me. Customized my sauce request. Loved it. Great value. It was perfect cause my wife grabbed a...burrito from Da Crack. Both places are great for grab an go food to take to the beach or wherever you are goingMore

Low-end grocery/market but friendly staff at poke bowl counter. 2 different fish offerings on the day we visited, pre-mixed with marinade/sauce. Not a full poke bar where you can choose from many ingredients.

Based on the great reviews, we wanted to come here. Based on the location, we almost changed our minds. You don’t come here for ambiance, but for excellent, and beautiful, sushi and poke bowls. Thank goodness we proceeded inside to the little stand in the...store or we would have missed out.More

This place was so good I came here 2 days in a row and wish I could go for three! It’s not a sit down restaurant, but a counter in a grocery store. I got my ahi poke bowl and took it down the street...to a park at the beach. Perfectly fresh and delicious!More

This was recommended to us by a local native and it did not disappoint. Don’t let the commonplace appearance fool you. I had never tried a poke bowl before but I ate every last bite and am a poke fan now. Get the gorilla bowl!!!

Haha! NO. It's a stall in the left side of the super market. But I did read that you can order in ahead of time if you are a local or know about this.
