You’re in Hawai‘i, which means you’re here for poke. There are plenty of great places in Honolulu, but you’ll want to head to Maguro Brothers for a simple version that highlights fresh fish tossed to order with minimal seasonings of limu and salt or shoyu and onion. While you can expect a consistent line in Waikiki after they open in the late afternoon, the Chinatown location is less busy, stays open until the early afternoon, and rounds out the slim menu of poke and chirashi with grilled hamachi kama and ahi belly.
