onos closed until mid march. sold out today; it was going to be my first time, closed starting tomorrow.
times liliha has fresh (~$16/lb) and previously frozen (~$11/lb )poke, wide selection. sampled different varieties, frozen seems almost as good as the fresh.
i believe Ono Seafood is regularly at the kaka'ako farmers markets on saturday mornings, if you want your fix. Always delicious. I think their 'hawaiian style' is as good as it gets. Plus, their tako seems to be more tender and juicy than anyone else's. interested to see the remodel, thx for the (unfortunate for you) tip.
I hope they add more seating. When I was there in September, the lone table was flled by a single group, so I took my poke and ate it at an abandoned picnic table at the side of Kapahulu (I think it was leftover from a food truck pod that used to be there). I probably looked a little strange, but the poke was so good, I didn't care!
just got to try ono seafood's poke.
you guys are right about the quality of the fish, quite noticable and welcome.
a little heavy on the seasoning, but would have been fine with rice. i don't know if they still toss everything together right after your order - if they do, you could tell them to go easy on it. but with rice, ono as is.
$18/lb for ahi, less for tako. i probably won't be back save for special occasions due to location and price, and times is right down the st. a true gem, though.
