With all the opinion's that this thread has nothing to do with Tiki
I post this as an answer,not all the meals posted here might be a "Tiki" meal
but this one sure is! it's on the first page when I started this thread,so I made it again tonight.

So I give you "Char Siu Chinese Barbecued Pork & Pineapple Coconut Rice"
And it tastes as good as it looks....

Sorry, I'm calling bullshit. That first entry very well in my opinion is a tiki dish, but then reposting it now is just an effort to cover your tracks. Philly cheese steaks, breakfast for dinner, and even your second "dinner" of Huevos Rancheros not only have nothing to do with tiki, but they add to the devolotion of this web site, especially since you started this thread - it sets a bad example of, "hey, post whatever you want about ANYTHING".

Don't get me wrong, I love a good plate of Huevos Rancheros, or a great Philly cheesesteak - and I've got the waistline to prove it - and would gladly join you in breakfast for dinner after boozing it up the next time I'm down in SoCal, but if I wanted to pontificate on other good foods that might be fun to post about, then I'd start looking for that in Beyond Tiki. As fun and tasty looking as some of this may be, a lot of, or most of, the stuff on this thread belongs in Bilge, or Beyond Tiki at the very least. You know it, I know it, and everyone else here knows it as well.

OK Mai Tai,let me first say don't worry to all reading, I am not going to go bat-shit, I know I have come across strongly
about this subject.

Mai Tai,I respect that you have a different point of view,then I do,I could say some outrageous "pop-culture" remark like I often do,but I will engage you in verbal intercourse for a moment if I may (Oh My!)

You are right that this thread is a general one & does not only concentrate on so called "Tiki" dishes
So I pose this question to you,why is this not a "Tiki" category? what is your criteria for what is "Tiki" and what is not?

My argument rests on the mainstay of the Modern Tiki lifestyle i.e. from the (1940s to 1960s) Tiki-bar & the Polynesian Restaurant
what did you need to enjoy the "Tiki Lifestyle" Food,Drink & Decor

If you where sitting in any number of Tiki-bars or restaurants 50 years ago,you could be eating a steak,chicken,a curry dish,Sushi,
any type of Asian dish,egg rolls and what not

The original Tiki-ware was for men,a suit & tie & for the ladies an evening dress,do you say a suit & tie is not Tiki?

also you say this thread should be in bilge instead of the "Tiki Drinks & Food" category where it now resides,how so?

You have stated your disagreement,but you have not posed any valid argument.
what do the rest of you think?

I leave you with an old menu from the Stockton Islander

That is what leads to the devolution of TikiCentral. No midcentury modern man would think of using profanity in the presence of a lady.

MaiTai, apparently you feel strongly about this. If you think this thread belongs in Bilge or Other, use your power to "U-Moderate", find other like-minded people to do the same. I would much rather post my dinner in Bilge that to have all this bickering (which, I believe, also adds to the devolution of TikiCentral)

Mai Tai, you (and the facebook friends in your head) sound more like a Suffering Bastard.

So much for the ALOHA SPIRIT here on tc.

One of the things I have really enjoyed about this thread is a strong sense of "Ohana"
we have a great group of cooks & foodies here who share an interest in both "Tiki" & good food
what could be more Tiki?

All! of you have been the most magnanimous & mannered bunch of natives I have had the pleasure to hang out with,period!
it is you guys that keep me from going all (Dark,Twisted Humor maniac) all over this thread,well mostly?
this is why this thread has become one that many people keep coming back to.

Now I don't know if Mai Tai was meaning to be disrespectful or was just joking,he is certainly welcome to say whatever
he likes & disagree with anything I might have to say,but since he does disagree,I would hope he can back up his opinion
with a real argument and hope he still feels welcome to post any meals he might want to.

That being said I hope to keep this thread a friendly & pleasant one, because there are plenty of other threads here
that one can go to & misbehave.

Hey ATP, I think I can figure out the pineapple, coconut rice, but the char siu pork? I cook chicken in a char siu sauce but is the preparing of the pork a method like smoking or on the grill? It looks very yummy and would like to try and make (something) like this myself. Thanks!

BTW, I say ignore the man behind the curtain....maybe he will just go away.

Laura

Hi Laura,
I just marinate Pork Tenderloins for 24 to 48 hours in
Char Siu sauce (I use "Lee Kum Kee" brand,no red dye sauces for me) Ginger,Garlic,Soy sauce,Sesame oil
and salt & pepper then topped with some Sesame seeds.

Then into a preheated oven 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes
rest the Pork for at least 10 minutes & thin slice.

All we need to do is put "Tiki" in front of what ever meals we post here and it is a Tiki meal!

maybe I will make some Tiki Quiche or Tiki Tacos
are "Shrimp waffles" Tiki? Pineapple Dogs?

Hey Amy! Pineapple!
