Tamashiro Market Restaurant Review

: If you visit Tamashiro Market in Kalihi, you’ll find the tiny parking lot is almost always busy and the building looks pretty much the same as it did when it was built in 1962. The place boasts a large selection of seafood --- not just poke --- with 75 varieties available, including rare local favorites like Samoan crab, opihi and Hawaii-grown amaebi (sweet shrimp). The variations on ahi poke are the best sellers, but the owner, Guy Tamashiro, says aku poke is his favorite.
