Poke has been around forever (well, at least in Hawaii). When I was a kid many decades ago, it was either homemade or sold at fish markets; don't recall it being on any restaurant menus.

Nowadays there are scores and scores of variations of poke. The traditional one is still my favorite: ahi tuna, limu (seaweed), sesame oil, and green onions.

Besides Hawaii, I've had really good poke in Vegas (lots of expatriates from the islands) and, believe it or not, in Colorado.

I've never understood why people take pictures of their food either: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5NmmdUbI3Q

Had my first experience with kaiten zushi over the weekend. It had computer touch pads at every table and a slot to drop your plates. I was surprised at how good the quality of sushi was. The menu had a nice variety. They even had hamachi kama which is a favorite of mine. I ordered it, and it was tasty. And you can't beat the prices--sushi was 2.25 per plate; the kama was 4.80.

$2.25/plate? Sounds like Kula to me. Smile

If so, that's practically down the street from me... Guess I need to check it out.

Kula sushi at the Laguna Hills Mall in Orange County. I was told not all of the Kula restaurants have the touch pads and plate slots--I don't know if that's true or not.

It's true. The new location in Cupertino has the touch screen and plate slot as well. But the Little Tokyo location didn't have it the last time I was there.

Edit: I think the Torrance location was upgraded as well.

Wow!
I'm jealous of your sushi choices. Beaten

Hi all,

Hope youve been well.
