Aside from the miles of white-sand beaches and world-renowned surf breaks, one of the biggest draws of Waikiki is the food scene–a unique and exciting mix of east meets west...

What exactly is poke? “Poke,” pronounced POH-KAY, means “to cut crosswise into pieces” in Hawaiian,  and is a simple concoction of cubed raw ahi tuna or salmon with a bit of shoyu (soy sauce), limu (vitamin-packed algae), crushed kukui nuts, avocado, sesame oil and green onions. The ever-popular poke bowl includes white rice and is often accompanied by a generous sprinkling of furikake (a Japanese seasoning that consists of dried and ground fish, sesame seeds, chopped seaweed, sugar and salt), along with a spicy and tangy aoli. 

The history of the acai bowl traces back to time before memory. Throughout the Amazonian basin the acai palm thrives. The edible palm heart and berry are a vital source of food for many people of the region. There is deep history between acai berry and the Amazon. But how did acai make its way out of the Amazon?  Here is an account of the modern history of the acai bowl.

In the early 1970’s, it was legendary Brazilian Jujitsu founder Carlos Gracie who popularized the acai bowl Brazilian cities like Rio de Janiero. As time went on Brazilian surfers brought the Super Amazon food to Hawaii and Southern California. It quickly became popular with local surfers looking for a tasty and healthy after session pick-me-up.
