The Shameful Tiki Room

The Shameful Tiki Room

Location: 4362 Main Street, Vancouver, BC

Meal:  Mai Tai and Sriracha Teriyaki Chicken Wings

Service:  Absolutely amazing once you sit down. The one recommendation I have is to make a reservation or you'll be waiting for maybe an hour or so. Sitting time is a maximum of two hours per table.

Atmosphere: The atmosphere is really why you want to come here. The owners have managed to recreate a piece of Hawaii and Tiki culture by infusing it in every inch of this lounge. Order the mystery bowl or the volcano and see what happens. 

Bottom line: This was my first time at the Shameful Tiki after a ton of people recommend that I try it. The first initial thought I had when I entered was wow, it's very humid in here. But my friend said to me that they do it on purpose to recreate how it feels in Hawaii (props). 

I really had no idea which drinks to order so I decided on their special of the day which was a Mai Tai for $8 (normally 12). Each drink on the menu has an icon representation of how strong the drink is. The Mai Tai was considered a three which was on the higher end of the spectrum. 

How was the drink? STRONG. As the ice diluted it a bit, it became easier to drink but it really reminded me of a strong margarita. 

As for food, I ordered 8 pieces of the Sriracha teriyaki wings which were very good. The meat fell off the bones and the wings were covered in sauce. It was spicy but wasn't unbearable.
