Magustuhan o Maibigan


Filipino: Magustuhan o Maibigan
English: To like


Emma's Poke
Haleiwa Joe's, North Shore, Hawaii


Noong nakatira pa ako sa Hawaii, ang paborito kong pagkaing katutubong Hawaiian ay ang poke.

Ang poke ay hilaw na isda na ginawang ensalada. Ang kadalasang sangkap ay Ahi (yellow fin tuna) sashimi na binabad sa asin, shoyu (toyo), sesame oil, labuyo, lunga at gulaman (limukohu). Minsan, nilalagyan rin eto ng sibuyas at bawang.

Noong nagtanghalian ako sa Haleiwa Joe's sa North Shore, ang pulutan ko ay ang Emma's Poke na gawa sa hilaw na Ahi na binabad sa soy-sesame marinade.

Kung mahilig kayong kumain ng sashimi o hilaw na isda, tikman ninyo ang poke at magustuhan rin ninyo eto.


When I was living in Hawaii, my favorite authentic Hawaiian food is poke.

Poke is a raw fish salad. The usual ingredients are Ahi (yellow fin tuna) sashimi marinated in salt, shoyu (soy sauce), sesame oil, Hawaiian chili pepper, sesame and limukohu seaweed. Sometimes, they also add onions and garlic.

When I had lunch at Haleiwa Joe's at North Shore, I had for appetizer Emma's Poke made of raw Ahi in soy-sesame marinade.

If you like eating sashimi or raw fish, try poke and you will like it, too.

I like Japanese food although I am still wary of eating raw fish, lol. Okay lang kung kilawin dahil naluluto sa suka yung isda o hipon pero and sushi ay binabad lang sa toyo at iba pang sauce. I love tempura though. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
