The Fish Express serves up what its name implies – fish plates to go. Dishing up fresh, local Hawaiian fish in a variety of styles, this is a great place to grab lunch on the go for a picnic at the beach.
For a fish plate lunch, choose your fresh catch of the day such as ahi or swordfish, along with rice, fresh greens, and potato salad. Try it macadamia crusted with lilikoi dill sauce or blackened with guava basil sauce. Traditional Hawaiian food is also served, such as lau lau or kalua pork with lomi salmon and chicken long rice. Fish tacos and wraps are also on offer. Poke (pronounced po-keh) is a popular native Hawaiian dish of diced, marinated raw fish. The Fish Express has many types of poke on offer displayed in a deli-like counter. To order a poke bowl, begin by choosing your rice – brown, white, or sushi. Next, choose your poke and add toppings from the self-service toppings bar. Grabbing a bite at The Fish Express in Kauai is a great way to avoid fast food chains and enjoy a fresh, local meal.
