Tropic Treasure: Cheap Tiki Drinks and $2.50 Musubi at the Hukilau
Feeling a little fruity? Are the trade winds calling your name and filling your head with visions of tranquil isles. Well, if its tropical drinks you crave and don’t feel like spending a fortune at the Tonga Room or hiking out to Trader Sam’s, then the Hukilau is a good alternative.
Everyday they have some island-themed concoction on special all day and night ($5 Mai-tais on Mondays; $3 Lychee-tinis on Wednesdays, $5 Blue Hawaiians on Saturday.
Food wise, your best sticking to appetizers if you’re trying to save a few bucks, although you get a grip of food if you go the Loco Moco route. Also, their service tends to be chaotic or non-existent, so plan on being there for a while or try your luck at the bar.
