Aloha Poke is serving Poke (pronounced as “Poh-kay”) at Amoy Street. Poke is a staple at Hawaiian choice staple. The traditional Poke consist of seasoned Ahi (Tuna) tossed with toasted sesame seeds, sweet onions and scallions. At Aloha Poke, it is served with salad and rice.
The cafe envrionment was very causal with all bar table seatings. And everything from ordering to collection were self-service.
There were some tropical looking like ornaments, I suppose that was an effort to make the place look a little Hawaiian. The service crew will greet diners “Aloha” as they as make their way into the space and at ordering counter too.
