OK, I wasn't gonna say anything, because with all the genres of Tiki that I am into, food is the farthest thing from my mind. And I don't wanna open a "Tiki food is all fake anyway - and so is Tiki - so there is no Tiki food - so it's a free-for-all" discussion. But why is it that, whenever someone (which often, but not always is myself) speaks up for keeping things Tiki-related, do folks have to play the "It's supposed to be fun" card, throwing in the "Don't be a Tiki Nazi" ace for good measure (I am excluding well thought out replies like Sabu's here). It's so pointless.
All I have to say to this is: This is Tiki CENTRAL, not a Tupperware party.

This just to make clear that my Tiki Hot Dog was not meant to dilute a valid discussion with silly jokes, an often attempted technique here. BUT, this said:

Actually ATP, you know I only addressed it for future newbies who are surfing and lurking. The title seriously threw me off, and I had never seen the thread before today. It could have been up there for a year or an hour, wouldn't have made any difference in my case. I also wasn't 'grilling' anyone, but rather clarifying how I saw, and interpreted it.

As for Sven's pic of Babalu's weiner, that is between them two! (I kid), but really that is actually what I had expected to see when reading the previous title, unique tiki food. Either that or exotic/tropical ingredient based foods. If you look, I haven't posted much in the past months, but I came on today and asked a question of Dr Z in Beyond Tiki...Then I went surfing...
No animosity, no hard feelings, no hating from me. Just wanted to add my opinion on what I think 'tiki food/dinner' could be. Especially since you were asking what would define "Tiki Dinner".

The title now, is much more fitting, and will be less confusing for Vets of TC, as well as Newer lurkers.

As for Erk, you think since corndogs are made from pork, they are tiki-ish, I have to still stand by original comment that they are in fact, a Fair Food. The only way you could get me to go along with corndogs are/could be tiki, would be by having the batter made with coconut shavings & macadamia nuts, deep fried, and then adding a final tropical sauce to compliment it.
Sorta like what PukaDog does.

Be sure to see their relishes too!(below image)

If we have to agree to disagree, its OK. We are both entitled to our opinions. Corndogs are fun, but unless they come with a carved face or special tropical sauce and batter, they will never be tiki to me.

On that note, let the food postings resume their pace.

I dare say that it hard to classify a corndog as any identifiable lone meat product. I didn't include it on this post for it's tenuous connection to the pork family. Again, it was something made for kids that have no interest in regular "tiki" foods and could still be fun. It does contain pineapple, coconut milk in the batter, and a suggestion for a tropical fruit based condiment,all of which I believed I had included in my recipe. Being as that all of the ingredients that may be linked to some tiki dishes were not noticed, I will endeavor to make any future recipe posts to be clearer in intent, with included graphs, filmstrip (wait for the ding before turning the slide) and perhaps a pie chart..........mmmmmmmmm pie..........

Actually Mexican food is my "Tiki Food". If it wasn't for the Carne Asada plate at this place...

absorbing all the rum out of my bloodstream after a TC Sunday at Tonga Hut...

I'd never be able to make the 20-mile drive back from NoHo to SaMo.

After a full day of building tikis, reading about tikis, writing about tikis, talking about tikis, organizing my tiki mugs, booze, mixes, music and wardrobe, reading tons of tiki threads, posting on tiki threads, and following up with new friends from these threads... well, sometimes a nice dinner of meatballs really hits the spot.







It's true that all this tiki stuff doesn't leave a lot of time to hang at the tiki bar, so I pretty much save that for special occasions. I've been hoping that someone who actually cooks tiki food would post about it, but I guess there aren't so many who do. And maybe those that do have been scared off by all the meatballs. And pizza.

There is another thread that is now about tiki food out and about, as opposed to home cooked.

I have my Trader Vic's Pacific Island Cookbook in front of me. On the inside flap it says "Anyone who relishes sumptuous, exotic dining and drinking (the kind exemplified by Trader Vic's famous establishment around the world) will find what he is looking for in these pages". Personally, I think the word "exotic" is the key word with anything tiki. By simply including pineapple/or coconut does not make or not make it a "tiki" meal.

Pictures on between pages 128-9, Lobster Cantonese and Curried Lamb Cheeks. Pictures between pages 192-3, Green Enchiladas with Sour Cream and Texan Sonofabitch Stew. Pictures between pages 224-5, Tacos and Tamales and Presidio Chili. Tiki recipes? There cocktail recipes are in the back. Are they all "tiki" drinks? Couldn't tell you.

Too bad the folks voicing negative comments weren't around to let Trader Vic know that he really didn't know what a tiki menu required.

Just sayin....
