With two locations in both El Segundo and Torrance, this small Hawaiian poke shop offers high-quality fish flown from the Honolulu Fish Market every morning in a casual, takeout-friendly environment. Unlike build-your-own poke places, Ali'i Fish Co pre-marinates its fish–including its standout spicy ahi tuna poke. Stop by on Taco Tuesdays for a discounted poke or fried fish taco. (For those who prefer cooked fish, the ahi burgers are pretty great, too.)
From the array of toppings to the differing sizes, to the freshness of the fish, it can be difficult to distinguish a great poke place from one that's below average. In fact, it's almost as hard as picking your favorite sushi spot. But one thing's always certain: whether you're looking for traditional Hawaiian poke or a build-your-own SoCal hybrid, there's never a lack of great seafood options to choose from. Because poke involves a ton of decision making already, we thought we'd take one decision out of the equation: where to go the next time you're craving lightly marinated raw fish over rice (or salad, if that's more your speed). Below are the absolute best restaurants to eat poke of just about every variety.
