This restaurant in El Segundo understands the fundamental truth many of LA’s so-called “poke spots” (cough cough, Sw**tfin) don’t: That quality fish is king. The owner of Ali’i used to be a buyer at the Honolulu Fish Auction, so the seafood they serve is shipped in from Hawai’i. And you can taste the difference. From the onion limu ahi to the salmon ponzu, all of the poke bowls here are simple and taste exactly like something you would get from a Foodland counter in the Islands. They also serve hot food, but who are we kidding? Get the poke bowl.
