I have had a craving for poi, especially 3 finger poi. Is there any available in Los Angeles? Thanks.

  1. As in Hawaiian poi? If so, there's Bruddahs and Bob's Hawaiian in Gardena.

      Yes, Hawaiian. But I was thinking of a market, like the old Hawaiian market on Sawtelle, that had the three kinds.

        Then...should you be looking for Hawaiian markets? There's one in SGV, on Valley and DelMar, I believe.

          I don't think that the Hawaiian market you're speaking of is a real Hawaiian market...more like a Chinese market.

          Marukai in Gardena has packaged poi from Hawaii. I believe places like Bruddah's serve that particular brand when and if they have it.

            ah, I see. I've always wondered. Thanks for the clarification.
