Hawaii 6-5-0

Jeanne Cooper | February 21, 2019 | Food & Drink Story Eat and Drink

The quest for the most authentic poke outside of Hawaii is over: Sam Choy, the James Beard Award-winning chef known as the “Godfather of Poke” opened Sam Choy’s Poke to the Max in San Bruno in October. As a partnership with chef Wade Tamura, formerly of Google and Slanted Door, Choy’s first California restaurant offers counter service for fresh (never frozen) ahi tuna and other poke-inspired concoctions; food trucks will follow. 629 San Mateo Ave., San Bruno, 650.763.0763
