    "uki" was what we used at home (we're ilocano). i didn't hear "bilat" until i was in my teens. maybe it's less acceptable, in the same way the "c" word isn't as acceptable as "p" *meow* word is.


    i found out today that "poke," or more correctly spelled "puke," & pronounced "pooh-keh" is "p" *meow* in tagalog.

    Howzit R! Long time no "see".

    Eh, keep in, the person who brought that up is the same person who started this ever-popular thread.

    Well, since Tanioka's is located in Waipahu, next time I go there to order some, I'll pronounce the "o" as "u" (I'll act like I'm a tourist). LOL!

    You right, I never see aku poke anywhere either . . . until yesterday. I saw aku poke at Haili's next to Ward Marukai. Cost mo than ahi poke though, & no look as good as the ahi poke. I bought the ahi poke - masarap.

    I love ahi poke - and I love poke made with swordfish even more so, but I get that very rarely.

    I think it's because aku is simply not in great supply right now. Hard to find dry aku and if you do it's about $20.00/lb. get planny dry ahi though. Wait for New Year's to come around and then check out the price.
