HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Hawaii Bureau) – The mobile device game sensation “Pokéman Go” may be on the way out. It’s being pushed out by “Poke Go” which has its roots in Hawaii.
Poke, of course is a Hawaiian raw tuna salad usually made from ahi, ground kukui nut, salt, and a little sesame oil.
You can get poke almost everywhere in Hawaii, including 7-Eleven and ABC stores, but finding authentic poke is always a big challenge.
But now, a new mobile phone “Poke Go” app will help consumers find the authentic version of the dish. It’s as simple as signing in to the app and walking the streets of Oahu and the other Hawaiian islands. Once the app detects authentic poke, your mobile phone plays ukelele music and gives you directions to reach the poke place.
The app can be downloaded from the Apple Store or aboard any Hawaiian Airlines flight to the islands.
