Ahi Poke to go?

Looking for great Ahi Poke in the South Bay area. Preferably a market or restaurant that sells it to go. Thanks!

      +1 for Bristol Farms. It is self serve and they offer a few different kinds and spice levels.

        I haven't been to the Bristol Farms in thw South Bay in a while but the Westchester store now only sells the ahi poke in containers. They raised prices on the ahi poke - I'm assuming the price differential from the other seafood salads is the reason.

          Manhattan Beach Bristol Farms is still self serve. I believe it is $14.99 a pound.

            If the South Pasadena location is similar, I would veto this. The one we got was terrible. Terrible quality, terrible flavor, terrible texture. Just ... overall very terrible. Wouldn't recommend at all.

              i wish we could get charles barkley to read your review out loud: tur-ble. just tur-ble.

    2. Whole Foods has pretty good ahi poke as does Bristol Farms. Have not been in the South Bay, but would assume they do too.

        1. I like the one from Quality Seafood on the Redondo Pier

          1. There is an excellent Poke place in Venice Beach on Ocean Front Walk right across from the paddle tennis courts / Muscle Beach.

              really ? damn, may have missed it so far, it's roughly where washington meets the boardwalk, close to Jodie Maroni's ???

              What's it called ?

                I think it's called Poke Poke but not sure. It is a few blocks N of Venice BLvd on the boardwalk right at the end of 18th street maybe? There are a few surprisingly foodie-ish outposts there one next to the other along the 18th St side / corner of Ocean Front Walk right at the edge of the paddle tennis courts. It is right next to Schulzie's Bread Pudding & a new organic farm fresh food place.... The ahi is good and fresh and high quality, they make it with kale & macademia nuts and avocado & other yummie stuff. They also have acai bowls.

                  Yeah, I like to with the avocado.

                  there's a hawaiian-influence joint in Huntington Beach but that's pretty far away.
