Tiny squares of deliciousness. That’s how I refer to poke (pronounced: POH-kay). The Hawaiian raw-fish salad is supposed to be an appetizer, but I’m convinced I could buy pounds of it and eat it—and only it—all day. Luckily, you can get pounds of it (or just half- or quarter-pound servings, if you’re a little less ambitious) at Poke Express, the tiny deli-style counter tucked inside Island Sushi (9400 S. Eastern Ave.). My go-to varieties are the spicy and furikake ahi, but everything offered is a light, flavorful and inexpensive delight for your mouth.
