International Poke Day
You might be wrong if you think this day is all about poke. Poke is a Hawaiian dish that consists of raw fish and a variety of spices. Poke is a lighter and more delicious version of sushi. It soaks up the ingredients in raw fish and provides people with a tasty snack to munch on. Although Poke was originally a Hawaiian snack, it has grown in popularity over time alongside other dishes such as Acai bowls or bubble tea.

The dish is pronounced “Poh-keh” and was originally created as a snack for Hawaiian fisherman before the arrival of modern cultures. Many natives of the archipelago consider it a comfort food. It didn’t become popular until 1970s cookbooks began adding it to their recipes. The rise of Hawaiian restaurants in the United States was due to Hawaiian migration from the islands. These restaurants had increased the popularity of this dish by 2012 alone. The dish was popularized in the rest of the world by 2014, including Pololi, which was one of the first poke shops to open in Hong Kong.
Sam Choy, one the most famous food chefs in Hawaii, hosts an annual three-day poke festival called “I Love Poke”. Over 2,000 entries were received from across the country, including those from Hawaii, Hawaii and Western Canada. The contest is open to anyone who submits a recipe and creates a variety of tasty poke. The winner will be chosen from 2,000 entries. Modern poke can now be made with avocados, ponzu sauces, teriyaki, mushrooms, crispy onion, sriracha and cilantro.
