Although Hawaii is the most isolated landmass in the world, living on an island-state comes with its benefits. The fiftieth state is home to the largest fish auction in the United States, where independent fisherman sell their fresh catch six days a week. With an ocean-to-table menu featured at restaurants across Oahu, diners are treated to some of the best and highest-quality seafood in the world.
For a taste of a popular local dish, seafood lovers might want to try poke, where raw, cubed fish is seasoned with Hawaiian, Japanese or Korean spices and garnishes. Sushi fans can enjoy freshly caught and fresh-from-Japan seafood prepared by seasoned chefs. When dining, keep a lookout for the eatery’s fresh catch of the day, and your taste buds likely won’t be disappointed.
