We had a light lunch at Kaleo's Bar & Grill on the way to Volcano town from Hilo. They received the Best Big Island restaurant awards in 2011 and 2012 so we decided to check it out.

I had to eat poke at least once in Hawaii even though I get to eat poke in the Marshall Islands all the time. But Hawaiian poke has a unique flavor. They put chuncks of tomotoes and some sugar in the sauce to make the poke slightly sweet.

Sorry for the blurry photo but the grilled mahi sandwich was very straight forward and simple but it was fresh and good. It is hard to judge with only two items but everyone at the restaurant seemed to be very happy.
