Looking for poke in Kapahulu? How’s about a refreshing sweet treat? I’ve got two businesses that share the same parking lot that can satisfy both your needs. Ono Seafood and Anu Island Soft Serve are 2 tiny but very popular destinations for those in search of something delicious.
I know Ono has been around for a long time, but I recently stopped in for my first visit. I know, I know…I promise I was born and raised here! Anyhow, I opted for a regular combo poke bowl served on white rice with shoyu ahi and miso tako. I thought my poke tasted fresh with good texture throughout.
They set their prices according to market prices and all poke bowls come with a can of juice or soda or a bottle of water.
There’s also a small selection of grab and go foods in the fridge, including edamame, taegu, and raw crab.
With enough space for a few people at a time inside the shop, you’ll likely see a line outside. The line did seem to move fast when I was there. There’s limited parking in their lot and a few tables outside if you plan to eat it there.

After your poke bowl or before (if you’re a dessert first kinda person), you should check out Anu Island Soft Serve. It’s located in the same parking lot as Ono Seafood. Anu is serving up dairy free soft serve with a variety of toppings. On this occasion, I got ube and honey lavender soft serve with strawberries. Other toppings included almonds, cocoa nibs, coconut, blueberries, banana, chocolate syrup, and granola. Flavors change frequently, so check their IG for updates.
