Travel Eats: Ono Seafood in Hawaii
Ono Seafood is a small hole-in-the-wall fast-food type of place. When we were looking for Ono Seafood, it took us a while to find it. As you can see, they do not have a huge sign. It is next to a motel so parking was difficult. Before I took this photo, these two parking spots dedicated to the restaurant were taken but was available after we found parking elsewhere. I am sure if you are getting take-out, you would be fine to pull up for a quick second on the side.
There is no seating inside but there are tables outside (as seen in the photo above) which seats about 10 people.
As you wait in line, you will see that pre-packaged food items available in the refrigerator section. Make sure you grab your complimentary drink before you order your poke bowl.

The texture of the poke we had were extremely soft and you can taste the freshness. For a creamier texture, the spicy ahi poke was an all time favorite.
