Eat Like a Local: Oki’s Seafood Corner

When it comes to enjoying authentic Hawaiian flavors, few places offer a more genuine taste of the islands than Oki’s Seafood Corner, nestled within the Foodland supermarket in Kahului, Maui. Make no mistake, this isn’t your typical supermarket seafood counter. In fact, Oki’s is a fully autonomous shop, with a serious commitment to quality, freshness and variety. Renowned for its extensive selection of poke and fresh seafood, Oki’s has been beloved destination for locals for years. And recently, word of mouth has spread to visitors eager to explore Maui’s culinary flavors + traditions.

At the heart of Oki’s appeal is its exceptional array of poke options, which go far beyond the typical variety found elsewhere. Of course, there’s the classics like Shoyu, Limu and Spicy Ahi; but also some more innovative and creative blends, like California Ahi, Shoyu Salmon and Bluefin Tuna. No matter what you order, each offering is prepared with fresh, often locally-sourced ingredients, that highlight the natural flavors of the ocean. But Oki’s Seafood Corner is much more than just a poke stop. It’s a true seafood market that boasts an impressive variety of local fish and crustaceans, presenting both fillets and whole options, making it a paradise for seafood enthusiasts.

Oki’s essentially always stocks the most sought-after Hawaiian fish such as Ahi (tuna), Mahi Mahi, and Ono (wahoo). Additionally, for those looking to try something uniquely Hawaiian, whole fish like Opakapaka (pink snapper), Aku (skipjack tuna), and Nabeta (deep water parrotfish) are often available. These selections not only offer a taste of the local aquatic life but also allow patrons to appreciate the freshness and quality that Oki’s prides itself on.

Not sure how to handle a whole fish? No worries! Oki’s friendly experts are there to clean and prep your pick for just a couple of bucks (literally $2.00 as of writing). They make it easy to go from market to meal, so you can enjoy your seafood feast without the fuss. Furthermore, the market also offers some prime, fresh-cut sashimi platters, as well as other local favorites like Kimchee Cucumber, Spicy Edamame, Lomi Lomi Salmon, Ogo (seaweed) Salad and more. Truly something for everyone to enjoy!

Swing by Oki’s Seafood Corner next time you’re in Central Maui and discover why it’s a local legend within Maui’s culinary landscape.
