This Hawaiian-Themed Restaurant In Arizona Will Transport You Straight To The Islands
If you don’t have the time or finances for a trip to Hawaii, we’ve got the next best thing right here in Arizona. Hula’s Modern Tiki brings island cuisine to the desert, complete with a tropical ambiance to match. Take a look:
With locations in Phoenix and Scottsdale, Hula's Modern Tiki has revolutionized the Arizona food scene.
It isn't just a restaurant, but rather a dining experience that fuses traditional Polynesian recipes with familiar flavors we all know and love.
Once inside, you'll be instantly transported to a tropical island paradise.
Floral wallpaper, grass reminiscent of hula skirts, and wooden furnishings are just several of the many Hawaiian influences that help complete the ambiance.
Kick off your meal with some Samurai Beef Sticks - one of the most popular starters.
These skewers are stacked end-to-end with grilled Mongolian beef, pineapple, and scallions, accompanied by a lime curry dipping sauce.
When it comes time to choose an entree, information overload will likely ensue.
The sheer number of delicious options is overwhelming in a beautiful way, but you can't go wrong with a classic. This spicy chicken bowl is served on a bed of rice, black beans, and cabbage, topped with avocado and fried plantains.
Burgers are brunch food if they have a fried egg on top, right?
This behemoth is a take on Loco Moco, a Hawaiian delicacy combining a beef patty, fried Spam, rice with mushroom gravy, and sunny side up eggs. Throwing all of that (plus some jack cheese) between two slices of toasted bread takes things to a whole new level.
Opt for a traditional table, or take your seat at the tiki bar.
Happy Hour is from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday through Friday and features discounted appetizers and drinks.
Over a dozen cocktails can be found on the drink menu, along with an extensive beer and wine selection.
Each beverage is a uniquely different journey for the taste buds, with notes ranging from light and fruity to robust.
Get the most bang for your buck with a Scorpion Bowl.
This blend of light and dark rum, brandy, and pineapple, lemon, and cranberry juice offers a complex flavor profile sure to please just about everyone. It's $18 and serves four, which comes out to just $4 a person!
