A must go to spot for me everytime I visit Honolulu is Pa'ina Cafe in the Ward Warehouse. It's a few doors down from In4mation, Dig Lifestyles and Second Skin, and Pa'ina has poke bowls that I continue to crave when I head back home to Los Angeles.
Pa'ina has a selection of delicious salads, sandwiches and entrees, but my favorite is the Hawaiian Bowl which is a combination of Kalua Pig, Lomi Salmon and your choice of Poke, and they offer brown rice as a healthy option. After picking your style of poke, (either shoyu, hot shoyu ahi, limu ahi, or spicy tuna), you can choose a choice of a wide array toppings including nori, furikake, natto, taegu, kim chee, green onion, and a lot more. There is always a line of people at Pa'ina, meaning it's seriously good eats, and it doesn't take long for them to prep your order so the wait isn't excruciating, and it's definitely worth the wait.
