My first experience in a Tiki restaurant was the Tahitian Terrace at Disneyland…that combined with the old school Chinese restaurants we used to have around here in SoCal.

I like authentic food, but I also like highly un-authentic food….and that’s what I personally think Tiki Food should be. Something shiny, fake and watered down….loaded with MSG and food coloring, garnished with pineapples!

Jim Tikiyaki once described it best! (Can’t find his thread any more) but it is the fake Cantonese food that I think is so awesome!

The last time I came across anything similar was at the Kon-Tiki in Arizona…they had some sweet and sour Hula Chicken (or something like that) that was exactly as I remembered fake Polynesian food as being!

That's a wonderful menu Lucas. And yea, thake Cantonese food and add pineapple and flower garnish and voila..."Polynesian DInner"

Not really, but ALOT of Tiki Restaurants did just that, and I love it !

If you multiply all those menu prices by 10, you will roughly be at today's prices (maybe a little less)....

And an interesting fact about the Monte Cristo sandwhich...it really was essentially the same as the ones currently served at Disneyland (Blue Bayou and French Market) with the exception that they added pineapple juice to the batter, and garnished it with pineapples as well!

Somewhere on the internet I once saw the original recipes for both variations, and lots of other cool items like those Mint Juleps (non alcoholic) that they also still make!


Jim, you would have loved the Tahitian Terrace...it was the only other really "classy" dining experience they ever had. If you go there now, it is right in between the Tiki Room and the Jungle Boat cruise, right were the aladin show (which is never open) is.

I am looking forward to the new polynesian restaurant they are thinking about building in downtown disney....!!

You know what guys? If you keep talking about "tiki" directly "related" aspects of tiki food, we just might have to move this thread back to where it started.

You got me dead to rights, Lucas, I am a mad hatter. How hats fit into the tiki scene may take some real juxtapositioning.

these bananas are from Don's. i'm hope'in they will make fruit
next year, if we get a summer. The other bananas below are my
dwarfs that i've had for a long time. the Banana bread is Raison,
almond, choco chip, brown sugar, coco nut, and all mixed too.
Got 2 pineapples almost ripe and will add those to future BB's.
Also a Papaya. Hope next summer is Summer!

p.s. more tiki food!
