Located at the corner of Palama Street, this Oahu landmark is known for the iconic pink exterior and the quality seafood on the interior. It's a local grocery like no other offering everything from three kinds of poi to five different kinds of tuna. For the uninitiated, the experience is one that is filled with aromas that have a fishy top note, a butchery middle note and an Asian finishing note. All of this is in a cramped and small interior filled with exotic items behind lighted display cases. Regulars know that this place is haven for fresh poi, poke and quality sashimi grade ahi, hands down.
