Spontaneous Tiki Bar: Tonga Hut
We were in the North Hollywood area yesterday running an errand and I realized hey, we are very close to Tonga Hut, the oldest tiki bar in Los Angeles. I’ve been a few times, mostly with BBHG, but Cole has never been so I decided to fix that. We decided to share their TongaPunch, which, as you can see, is basically served in a salad bowl with a paper umbrella and two straws. FUCKING MAGICAL. Also, it was basically like a bowl of rum with a spritz of juice. We were officially drunk after finishing this and I’ll do it again when the opportunity arises. It was fantastic. I also obtained a new tiki mug for the collection (photos below). It stands out quite a bit, as it has a matte finish.
We stumbled down the street to Zahle Restaurant and had some food so I could sober up. If you’re interested, I wrote a review.
