Name:Albert's Tiki Village
Type:restaurant
Street:3514 Marconi Ave at Watt Ave.
City:Sacramento
State:CA
Zip:
country:USA
Phone:916-489-8221
Status:defunct

Description:
I have been looking and researching and have not been able to find much at all
about Albert's Tiki Village .It's funny because out of all the menus that I have
collected ,the Tiki Village is one of my favorites .Based on the menu they served
Cantonese , Mandarin and American dishes like- Steak and Lobster,Top Sirloin,Spring
Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken etc.Their specialty drinks were the: Green Dragon ,
Sharks Tooth,Tiki Village punch, Rangoon Ruby,The Blue Diamond,Pino Frio and of
coarse a Mai Tai.Looks like they also served :Tiki Grog for two served in a
communal tiki bowl,Volcano eruption and a Scorpion bowl for two as well.

I have not seen any mugs , plates , swizzles or any other items that would help
about info on the place.I had seen that PTD found a matchbook , but that's really
the only thing I have seen.Abstractiki(David)is really good about research on
places...so maybe he has something for us.

Bill,

PTD just posted some pictures of the menu from Tiki Village that he found in a Sacramento Dining Out guide. I had never heard of this place before then.

Here are PTD's menu pages:




Menu states that the owner was Albert Mar and that he was usually on-site to meet and greet and advise on the dishes.

A friend of mine was able to salvage a few pieces from this place prior to it going under the wrecking ball. He still has some of the bamboo wall sconce lamps and three 12' tikis that used to be there. I have wanted to buy the two he is willing to sell, but the $3,000.00 price tag for both of them has kept me from acquiring them to date. Still dreaming though...

Oh, and he does have a menu too!

PTD

PTD,

Any chance of seeing some photos of those items?

Man, wish I would have had that menu for Tiki Modern, since it features (as you all have noticed, I am sure) the Witco "God of Fortune" Tiki. I was only able to squeeze in the gold matchbook cover into the Tiki collage on page 99.

PTD, did you say THREE 12 FOOT Tikis? Or two, or even one...would you have any photos?

There were 3 of these tikis in total...one the owner has kept for himself and he has it at home and the other two are for sale...as much as I would love to own one I am willing to put anyone interested in purchasing one or both of these with the owner.

Here is a picture of one of them...

Yes, they are Witco.

I can always go by and take a couple of more pics and talk to him as well.

Nice job PTD .The menu was too large to scan so I took a couple of better photos
of the cover and the first two pages of menu.

More photos. Talk. Yah, please.

In that size, they must have been custom jobs by Witco. That one looks like it has a good coat of paint on it, prolly cuz of being outside. Would be nice to find a pic of them in Situ at the restaurant.

I just got off the phone with the owner and have set up a time tomorrow afternoon to go take pictures and talk to him. Apparently the other one is slightly different and we are going to have to dig them out of a corner to take the pictures. They are literally buried in a warehouse full of stuff, so I am hoping to see if he is willing to make a better deal once we get them out.

Thank you for the compliment Trader Bill, I would love to be able to dig something up for you. I'll sure try.

Great new thread you have started here and you've already got a ton of cool stuff poring in! What a fantastic response form everyone. And those Tikis! WoW! I would love to have one. Would he sell just one i wonder? Looking forward to seeing more pics!

Here is the complete GOLDEN matchbook:



Because of the gold and it advertising Cantonese food, I always assumed this place was more Chinese in character.

Not much to tell right now.

The demo had began when these were salvaged. Several other pieces aside from the tikis were saved including a boat, lobster traps and the wall sconces.

Here are the pictures I took. I was cramped for space. The tikis are actually 10'6" and 10'8". There were three that were hollowed to fit against the posts on the overhang of the building and no they are not painted.



































They are for sale individually @ $1,500.00 each or $3,000.00 for the pair. If sold as a pair, the owner will include some extras such as a pair of the bamboo wall light sconces and some other items! Again, if I had the money (and the space)...it would be nice to see these go to someone here!

Nice. The other one looks like an elongated version of Witco's "Polynesian Fishing God"


--sometimes referred to as the "Mick Jagger Tiki"



Though these are custom pieces, the price is still a little high for today's market.
