You just never know what you’ll find exploring the little nooks and crannies of new locales. Unfortunately there’s no amount of effort other than time that can prepare you to try all the foods you can taste everywhere you go. Koloa is no exception to that rule.
Nadia reminded me that a friend suggested a small hole in the wall place in the town of Koloa called Koloa Fish Market for some poke. Driving through Kauai we eventually found the small town and wandered it’s streets admiring it’s myriad of both boutique shops and local culture.
Enter the Market
As we turned down one road, we and our already full stomachs found Koloa Fish Market and were unprepared for the treasures that lay within. Like I said earlier, being new to Kauai we literally snacked on everything everywhere we went. At this point of the day I wish we had walked a little or a lot more to work up an appetite.
Nothing prepared us for the onslaught of pokes behind the glass that visually assaulted us. We wanted to try to eat everything but alas there’s not much we could do. I was already loosening my belt and unbuttoned my waist button but only was able to build up the courage to order 2 of the many flavors… And a coconut taro dessert!
What is It
Koloa Fish Market is an old school poke joint that moved to a new building on the other side of town from their original location. It’s a no nonsense deli like venue that slings a bunch of different poke flavors:
- Fresh Korean Ahi Poke
- Kim Chee Tako Poke
- Fresh Ahi Shoyu Poke
- Spicy Shrimp Poke
- Fresh Spicy Ahi Poke
- And MORE Poke
Don’t forget that they also have a bunch of rice plates, cooked local dishes, AND different local desserts as well.
Where is It

Good luck on eating as many pokes as you can!
