What a great thread that deserves a bump.

Does anyone else have any other suggestion for their fav items on a pupu platter? How essential are the sauces? If yes, what are your sauce musts to go with your fav contents of the famous appetizer combo?

It is acceptable to just stop at 4 types of food on your pupu?

I've only had the Mai Kai puu puu platter, so I really can't say what are other favs from around the tiki community. Just curious and would love feedback.

I found a recipe for Vegetarian Rumaki in a new cookbook I bought! Haven't tried it yet - but here goes. Its also good if you're a tightwad and don't want to shell out for scallops, ahhah!

Mushroom Rumaki

24 canned water chestnut slices
1/2 cup port wine
1 tbsp olive oil
12 small mushroom caps. halved
1 tbsp tamari or other soy sauce
5 slices vegetarian bacon, cut into 2-inch lengths

1. Place the water chestnuts in a sha;llow bowl and add the port. Marinate for 30 minutes at room temp.

2. Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the msuhrooms and soy sauce and cook until mushrooms are slightly softened, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

2. Position a rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the broiler. Wrap a slice of water chestnut and a mushroom half in a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining ingredients and place on a baking sheet. Place under the broiler and broil until bacon is crisp. serve hot!

Serves 6 to 8 cheapskates or vegetarians

Mmmmm...Pupu platter...

When I was a kid (the 1970's), every Chinese restaurant in New Jersey used to offer these, and I frequently insisted on my folks ordering one for us, since I loved toasting stuff on the fire. Those multi-colored shrimp chips (looked like styrofoam packing material, tasted vaguely of shrimp) were the best. Toasting those was not done, though.

There weren't any Polynesian places as such that I recall, but a few of the Chinese restaurants around New Jersey made moves in that direction, offered the Pupu appetizers and had a small selection of polynesian cocktails in tiki mugs, if I'm remembering correctly. Obviously I never had any cocktails, and my folks weren't drinkers (much) so they never ordered any either.

The one we went to most often was the Jade Foutain on Route 17 in Paramus, long gone. I even remember my Cub Scout troop had some type of banquet dinner in there, we had it in the cocktail lounge! Pupu memories...
