Here’s something that we don’t get In The Middle Of The Desert,
We went over to Fort Ruger Market, one of our old favorites for Poke. MAN! Can you see the prices? But this stuff is so fresh, I mean, straight off the fishing boats this morning. The Smoked Tako or Octopus was like eating Beef, really tasty. The Ahi or Tuna Poke has super fresh, as in plucked from the Ocean this morning, as well as the Limu or Seaweed. I asked for a dash of Shoyu on the Tako Onion and Ahi. Before you freak out too much and say, ‘I can’t eat raw fish’, the Octopus is cooked.
We took our booty back to the apartment and had dinner el fresco on our lanai, overlooking Diamond Head.
I thought about getting us some Opihi, but, GEEZ!! That’s okay, I’ll pass. A quarter pound container would be $15.25 before tax (yes, Hawaii taxes EVERYTHING!). That stuff is like gold.
So if you every make it to Oahu, do rent a car, do try the different local foods, do go to Ft. Ruger Market and get some fish and maybe even a six-pack of beer to wash it all down.
