Kung-Fu Tiki Mai Tai - The Best Friday Night Drink EVAH!
The Kung-Fu Tiki Mai Tai has become a Friday ritual for me (well, the last two Friday nights I've been in town, at least). We have a restaurant just a few blocks away from us called Kitsch'n. We had basically avoided the joint because of one mediocre meal and the fact that Rachael Ray recommends it. I just can't trust someone who uses words like, "yum-o" and "delish." (In fact, I cringe just typing them.)
But ANYWAY, we moved even closer to the restaurant when we bought this house, so we decided to give it another try, and I just love it. First of all, it is perfect for children. Kids meals are very varied, and come in a totally cool, retro metal lunchbox. You can also have the kitchen mix peas or broccoli INTO the meal, which is a nice feature. Adult food is also quite good (our first visit must have been a fluke). I have a hard time ordering anything other than the Fried Chicken, but the Beef Stroganoff also rocks, and Michael has even enjoyed more gourmet fare, like Tilapia in a White Wine Sauce.
It's just a great place to eat with kids without losing sanity. Everyone can be kept entertained with the board games piled high on the shelves, and adults can drink away the screaming and whining with drinks like the Kung-Fu Tiki Mai Tai (or a Daquiri made with Tang, but I haven't yet been so bold as to try that).
