So you not only have raw fish, you got cooked shrimp, cooked octopus," Says owner and third-generation Hawaiian, Robert Kubota. "The locals always remember us because their grandparents brought them, and now they became grandparents bringing their grandchildren. So even when the high school kids, they graduate, they go off to college-- one of the first stops when they come home from college during summer breaks, winter breaks. Come straight to Pono Market."
