The quintessential of soy sauce, salt, sesame oil, green and sweet onion shrouding bite-size morsels of succulent, flash-fried-rare ahi make the perfect fried poke. No one does it better than Sam Choy’s Kai Lanai kitchen—on its own as a pūpū, topping a fresh salad or with rice. Sam’s classic local flavors still reign at this spectacular ocean view venue that bears his name.
