Maguro Brothers: Sashimi, Poké bowls, and Sushi Bowls in Hawaii

Diana Chan May 4, 2018 Hawaii, Seafood, Three Beakers

Maguro Brothers Hawaii is a little shop inside Kekaulike Market in Honolulu. It’s a bit hard to find as you have to navigate your way through the market to find this stall. They are best known for their fresh sashimi and rice bowls. It is cash only, so make sure you have some with you.


Sashimi platter

We ordered the sashimi platter and they had various kinds, so we went with the $20 option that comes with 4 different sashimi. There was tako, hamachi, ahi and salmon. All of the sashimi was fresh and delicious, but it really depends where you come from. Being from the Vancouver, we really have a good variety of salmon, so I was more critical on their choice of salmon. Hamachi and the ahi were of course my favourites.

Their knife skills could have been a bit better or use a sharper knife, but now I’m just being picky.

Hawaiian Limu Ahi Poké Bowl

There is limu seaweed, salt, chili pepper, green onions, onion and sesame oil over rice. The delicious marinated mixture was really good. A little kick of heat with the chili peppers. I really like the limu seaweed as I’ve never had this before.

Chutoro Sushi Bowl

There are 6 pieces of chutoro, which is the cut of the tuna belly that is medium. It was really delicious over the sushi rice. There is also 2 pieces of tamago, ginger and wasabi.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the sushi bowls and poke bowls were delicious. I am so-so about the sashimi as I come from Vancouver, which has outstanding sashimi. If you are from a land-locked city, you’ll love what they have here.
