We posted a 1963 newspaper ad for the Kon-Tiki on our Facebook page today. I tried to post it here but it's a .bmp and not a .jpg so it wouldn't accept the file.

It's a fun ad showing a tiki looking quite excited by the idea of a $2.85 steak.

Here's a link if anyone wants to take a look.

Well the Tiki transmission tradition keeps going in Portland. That address at 10th and Stark popped up again in this matchbook I got from the South Seas restaurant.



So that makes three Poly Pop places at the same location when you add in the Bali Hai and Pantley's Pagan Hut.

Back to our originally scheduled progam, a matchbook from the Kon Tiki in Portland.

The Kon Tiki chef was Danny Woo.

It looks as if it was pretty swanky. Vaguely reminiscent of Portland's new Trader Vic's. Those fishing float lights look VERY much like the ones that now hang outside the Alibi. They've been recently refurbished but those floats have hung outside the Alibi for as long as I remember, and they were old when I first saw 'em 13 years ago. Wonder if they were salvaged from the Kon Tiki? Much of what was in the old Jasmine Tree (some of which made it's way to Thatch and still resides in Hale Pele) was salvaged from Kon Tiki, or so I'm told, so a trip to Hale Pele is about the only way to catch a glimpse of the former glory of Kon Tiki.

Vintage Roadside has some amazing photos of the Portland Kon Tiki that were sale on Etsy for a while.







And a luncheon menu that I have in my image library.
