The corn and crab dish looks like a party! Was it good?

Trader Vic's Emeryville is posting some savory looking dishes styled in a similar fashion:

The food was good that night! The crab was on special for $14.99 (a Wenesday night thing).
I really like going to Don's, but the quality of food is kinda hit 'n' miss there...the zombie fish was also pretty dang tasty last month, I must say.
Unfortunately, or fortunately for DBC, there was a lady with her son (I'm assuming) sitting next to us giving her "harsh" criticisms to the manager. He seemed to be soaking it in, and wanting to improve their menu with her suggestions. Don't know who she was, but attention was being paid. Looking forward to improvements/changes.

It was mighty mighty tasty.
We ordered it the first time we went to the Crystal Cove Beachcomber, and had to order it again when we went to the Malibu Beachcomber.
They have 3 cool local specific mugs and a bowl too for quite reasonable prices. They are the same at both locations.

Here are some pics I took from the Crystal Cove local.

International Market Place food court...



"If it doesn't say Tiki on it, it's not Tiki food."

Who was the guy who said that?

Anyway I opted for the Kimchi fried rice in the stall next door.

There's a lot of bad Tiki around here (Waikiki). Stay tuned...

I went to the newly renovated Trader Vic's in Emeryville recently.

The view is nice, but the food and drinks were totally disappointing. They weren't awful, just not anything to take a photo of, or inspiring me to want to go there again. It was happy hour, so the tab wasn't ridiculous.

If anyone has a better experience with the menu there, I'd love to hear about it. In the meantime, it's cocktails at home, parties, or Forbidden Island.

That's dissapointing to hear Amy. I get to TV's Chicago several times a year and the food is always great.

Lots of people have good things to say about the food at Trader's L.A.
I know Sabu is a fan, anyone else?

I'm a fan!!!
The last time we went, we sat in the bar (corner booth so you can check the whole area) during late afternoon, and ordered off the appetizer menu. Although the shrimp were overcooked, the other four dishes we had were great. We had Mai Tais from scratch, Navy Grogs and Menehune Juice...All very tasty!
