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.
Out the door price: Under $25 with tip
Final Rating: 4/5
