Thanks for posting the pics Pappy! You were lucky to escape with your camera out of there.

My opinion - visit the Mon Kou if you're looking for a tiki fix and you're in the Attleboro area. I'll certainly venture there again in the future.

Yeah, that place was amazing and I don't mean because it was so wonderful. It was amazing to still find a restaurant like that. Back in the 70's, EVERY decent-sized town in MA had a Chinese-Polynesian place just like the Mon Kou.

It was being taken to the Honolulu in Massachussetts in the late 70's that I got the Tiki itch. I'm convinced that there's a whole lot more in that area to be uncovered. Keep on digging, Pappy!

although its a fairly new establishment,and isnt much to look at shanghai gardens certainly makes a lovely scorpion bowl. it is in south attleboro,MA on RT 1 on the border of pawtucket. Give it a shot. I will post a review once i have more accurately sampled the menu.

Milford (about 20 miles NW of Attleboro) is home to the PAGO-PAGO. Haven't been there in a while but I'm sure it's worth a visit.

Just returned from my first trip to the Mon Kou. Very kool. Good food , good drinks.
Great decor, in spite of the updated booths and tables. The murals & tikis are awesome. Sorry to say, our drinks were served in regular glasses, although mine did have a dragon on it & the Mon Kou name. they wouldn't sell me one though. I did see a mean looking scorpion bowl go by in a big volcano bowl but they never lit the center. Definitely a must see for anyone visiting the area & will be a frequent stop of mine as it's less than 45 minutes from home. As for the mug hunt, when I got home, there was a message on my machine. My favorite antique store called to say she had a bunch of stuff set aside for me. Unfortunately, that'll have to wait til tomorrow.

I am getting the feeling that Kate joined a matchbook club.

Nope. No club. Although that's not a bad idea. I'm just a little paper-obsessed these days, and I do believe that I can now call myself a phillumenist. It's so much easier to put 100 matchbooks into a binder as opposed to finding shelf space for mugs.

I found a photo of this great postcard from Mon Kou on flickr.



Witco-like carvings




And check out all of the Tiki mugs and bowls lined up behind the bar.



Nice looking Tiki bar.
