Fresh Catch

I've been wanting to try Fresh Catch for a while. They are known mostly for their fresh poke. There are many variations of poke, and Fresh Catch seems to have them all - ahi, crab, salmon, tako. They also offer a handful of plate lunches, sashimi platters, and daily specials.

When you first walk in, you'll see all the different kinds of pokes in the display case. At our visit, the lady behind the counter was more than happy to offer us a sample.

My friend got the poke bowl. The poke bowl is made to order and it's made your way - choose the amount of rice you want (50 cents per scoop), and then choose your poke. Choose one, choose a few. You are charged by the pound. My friend got the spicy poke and Hawaiian spicy poke.

A lot of Yelpers spoke highly of the furikake salmon, so I ordered it. They give you a big slice of salmon served on a bed of greens, and two scoops rice (brown rice is available). They put mayo-based sauce on top of the salmon, which I could have done without (I'm not a big fan of mayo) but maybe that's what keeps the salmon moist.

On the way out, I bought a 1/4 lb of the salmon poke and took it home so that my husband could try it. His first reaction was "you should have bought more!" Although I didn't admit it, I also thought I should have bought more of it - it was so ono.

They'll be opening their second location in Kaneohe soon, in the building formerly occupied by Papa Johns on Kamehameha Highway.
