Once you make it past the parking situation, Umeke’s is totally worth it! My personal favorite is the Niçoise salad with Ono instead of ahi but the fish tacos are a close second. Everything on the menu I’ve tasted is delicious!! The staff is also...More

The poke is soooo good. Try it with the fried rice it’s amazing and has chunks of smoked pork and salmon in it. In a strip Mall which meant away from the touristy kitch.
