Hello Fellow New England Tikiphiles!

The Queequeg Chapter of the Fraternal Order of Moai would like to invite you to join us as we meet at
Ho Kong in Woonsocket, RI to share cocktails, food, and conversation on Saturday February 11, 2012.
(you can bet we'll be talking a lot about Ohana, Luau at the Lake coming up in June since the anticipation and excitement is growing!)

So come on out!
Ho Kong
366 Cumberland Hill Rd
Woonsocket, RI 02895-4716

Here's the Critiki link:

Here's the Tiki Central "Locating Tiki" thread: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=8217&forum=2&hilite=Ho%20Kong

Looks like the Tiki Central thread could use some pictures, so let's get on that!

Carl, are you driving all the way from Nashua to Woonsocket? Please post a review of this joint. It's only about a half hour from my house.

Even with the impending snow, I believe I will be driving there yes. It's only about 2 hours from me I think. I'm sure we'll have reviews, photos, drink suggestions etc. following our visit!

We'll take the three hour tour to get there, a little snow doesn't matter.

See ya!

Oh yeah, we're on!

I just realized that Woonsocket is only an hour and 20 minutes from me! A hop skip and a jump!

Hope to see a bunch of you at Ho Kong Today!

Have fun at your concert, and Mr. Ho have fun in NYC. We'll get you both to one of these things one of these days. And I'm going to get out to see Mr. Ho play again one of these days too!

Food was good!

Of course I can only stand by what I had, which was Boneless Spare Ribs, Scallion Pancakes, Peking Ravioli, and my wife enjoyed her Kung Pow Chicken.

As for drinks, I think the most popular seemed to be the Ho Kong Special, which was definitely citrusy, but with a good portion of rum, and served in the Wahine mug (as shown above).

I liked the Mai Tai, but it was not entirely like a Mai Tai, being pretty dark red (not uncommon around these parts of course) but the source of the redness may have come from a Cherry Schnapps or something like that. Not a bad flavor at all, but again, not your traditional Mai Tai.

Hopefully some more folks who were there will share their food and drink opinions.

Honestly, the conversation was so fun I didn't eat as much as I usually would!
