Join the surfers and construction workers refueling at this general store. Fort Ruger Market dates back to 1942, but the food has never been as good as it is now. You don’t have to choose between the Rugerlicious poke made up of fresh ahi mixed with taegu, or the crispy-skinned lechon: get them both on top of rice for the ultimate bowl. And while you’re there, grab some dried ahi, a tub of smoked ahi, and a paper bag of boiled peanuts by the cash register for all-day snacking, and bring your haul for a picnic at the nearby Diamond Head lookout.
