A poke bowl that I learned in Honolulu, very simple and sooooo delicious 








About this recipe

I first heard about poke when I visited the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu, and my first try was a revelation

Poke Bowl


 

"Poke" means "to cut" or "to slice" in Hawaiian language

Poke Bowl


 

Oahu island

Honolulu, in beautiful Oahu. That was the last island of the Hawaiian islands that I visited, for I was under the assumption that Honolulu was just another American city, with its starbuck and other chain food restaurants...

And I was wrong ! The city and the island are actually very interesting ! I recommend to visit not only Honolulu but also the countryside which is amazing

Waikīkī

Beautiful Waikiki beach...
Poke Bowl

Though I liked Waikiki, I preferred other beaches, on the south side, more quiet, with locals, and fewer tourists !

And I love those Hula dances, and even if they are here for tourists' delight, I find them so beautiful.... Something that I learned during my trip to Oahu : These dancers tell a story, but through their hands : You are supposed to look at their hands, for it is their hands that will tell the story

The greatest surfer

The best surfer of all times is probably Duke Kahanamoku, and this statue reminds us that Duke used to swim and surf here

The other greatest surfer

Did you recognize the other best world surfer ? Yes ! That's me, holding a surf board for the very first time in my life....

That's me... falling.
