Local Knowledge: Foodland Poke

The ahi poke (raw tuna) is served fresh, cheap and in numerous varieties at the Foodland grocery store seafood counter. It’s one of the best culinary deals on the island. Our favorite part? The free samples! If you want a meal to-go, ask for a poke bowl, which comes with a hefty helping of rice. The spiced ahi poke is outstanding.

Once you've checked it out, go for a picnic overlooking the water on Front St.
