ige's 19th puka

Recently, we checked out Ige's 19th Puka for lunch.

In Hawaii, "puka" means "hole".

Aunty Marian went with their Fresh Seared Ahi(yellow fin tuna)...$12 + tax. This was grilled with lemon butter and served with a cilantro aioli.

This was good except we thought that the aioli could've used more cilantro.

I tried their Furikake Ahi...$12 + tax. This came with a spicy oyster sauce. The sauce was thick, spicy perfect for the ahi.

Mom and Grandma shared the Fish Tofu Patties...$10 + tax.

This came with a sweet chili aioli which had no spiciness to it at all. Also the patties which were HUGE had more fish than tofu.

They said these were delicious, but if no one had told them there was tofu in it they would've thought it was just a fish patty.

Lots of seating and everything comes out pretty quickly.

We'll be back.

Everything looks great, but I really liked the different sauces that went with each fish. Spicy oyster think it was just oyster sauce spiked with chili pepper or some extra ingredients? I'd like to try something like that on ahi on the grill.

Ooh that furikake ahi looks delicious!

K and S said...

no Rowena, it seemed like a thick teri sauce with oyster sauce and chili pepper in it. I think it would be perfect for grilling.

it was K :)

Take care you two.
