My wife & I had lots of great food in Hawaii, but the 808 Kauai Shrimp Poke Bowl from Umekes is the one dish that really blew me away–and I don’t even like shrimp!
We stopped at Umekes before we hopped on the plane homeward bound for Canada. We agreed that it was the best food we had tasted on our entire 10 day trip of the big island. My husband, Michael, ordered the Ahi belly and raved about it the whole way home. We would definitely recommend Umekes to anyone!
As always this place never fails. Nakoa and crew do an excellent job on creating flavorful and very inventive dishes. This new location is prime.
