Like Poke is pretty much the creme de la creme of Maui poke food trucks, offering many different specialty poke styles, raw and fried.

This Maui food truck begins serving plates around 10 am, typically sells out by noon, but can still be found slingin’ poke plates until about 2 pm (if you’re lucky).

Like Poke’s most popular poke styles are the Shoyu Wasabi, Shoyu Ginger, Spicy Ahi, Tako Poke, and the dangerously delicious Fried Poke drizzled with a yummy sauce and garnished with tobiko.
