Yeah the drinks weren't bad Rain. I had a Navy Grog that was surprisingly very close in taste to the real thing (not used to that around here). The Mon Kou Mai Tai was ok - not even close to the real deal but drinkable.

Fortunately Pappy fixed us up a nice round of Mai Tais at his place later in the evening and they were superb. We also got to test out Pappy's latest concoction, Jungle Madness, and I must say it was pretty good - smooth and not too sweet. Recipe here:

Can't wait until the next adventure all!

I have to concur with johnman. The Mon Kou was just ok. There was one wall FULL of tikis & masks, but that was about it. The rest was chinese resteraunt decor (with a few REALLY nice murals).

The cocktails, while not "traditional", were all pretty tasty & drinkable (they had nothing on Pappy's mixing however!). I'm still not sure what was in the "secret sauce" tub that the bartender kept ladeling into the cocktails...and I dont wanna know.

I was a little disapointed with the food. I think we all had Polynesian dishes, and all of them left something to be desired (my 4 happinesses had maybe 2 happinesses, max)

In all, well worth the trip if you're in the area, and with the lack of tiki joints up here, its prob worth a short ride.

Up next...the Tahiti. More details to come. (oh, and all my pics of the Mon Kou came out crappy, so its up to Pappy to post some good ones)

shame about the mon kou... like you said, though, pappy, not a lot going on around here :/

anyone ever check out that newish tiki place right IN boston next axis/avalon? i think i saw photos somewhere that made it look like some young townie club rather than a retro lounge, but i was just curious.

Yeah, I've been to that place by Fenway (avalon, etc). I think its called "The Tiki Room" or something. Decor was ok, food was almost ok, and the drinks left alot to be desired. Worth checking out before or after a game if your in Boston, but I wouldnt go out of my way to get there

Yeah Tiki Room in Boston sounded promising until I read their drink menu. Just imagine a Mai Tai with zero lime juice and Capt. Morgan. If I do ever end up in the area I would certainly have to check it out.

You know what the problem with America is? It's too darn big. The Mai Kai should be an few hours drive from everywhere...

Who's up for the Tahiti Restaurant in Dedham on Sat. the 20th?

there's a possibility of that for us, too... more likely it'll be mid july, but i'll keep it in mind just in case.

Rain- keep me posted if you decide to go early

Pappy- I'm all over the Tahiti, but the 20th doesn't work for me. Any chance of pushing it back a week?

Hi folks! Don't know if the 20th will work for me but maybe the following week. The Tahitian sounds promising Pappy - the drink menu actually mentions 15 year rum in their Mai Tais. At $4.90 a drink it can't be true. Maybe it's 15 year old Bacardi:) Anyway I'm totally up for a night out just gotta confirm things here (I never know what the heck is on our schedule).

Bargoyle I'm envious man - Mai Kai is in your immediate future. Looks like I'll be holding out for the HKL. I'm just itching to make reservations!

Greetings New Englanders!

When I was out east visiting family, my brother and I stumbled upon Tiki Island in Medford Mass. We sat at the small bar in the back. The Zombie I had was one of the best I've ever had -- and I've been around the block a couple of times when it comes to tiki drinks. We only ordered an egg roll, and it had that light and delicious East Coast Chinese food flavor (those from the midwest, who transplanted from the east coast will know what I mean).

I can't say much more about the rest of the food or drink, other than to say I wish we had eaten dinner there rather than go to the place we did go too. In any case, it seems like those in range of this place might want to give it a whirl.

I think Tikisgrl mentioned this before. Has anyone been there recently?

Looks pretty good from the website. They even show the drinks in tiki mugs. I'm wondering if any are served that way.

Hopefully my musician schedule will allow me to come out some time.
