• Lunch at Tropics Bar & Grill Waikiki

    February 19, 2013

    After my tour of the Hawaii Prince Hotel, I met Mal at the beach, which was just a short walk from the hotel.

    We went swimming and worked on our tans for about an hour before we started to get hungry for lunch.

    There were a bunch of bars and restaurants along the water, so we walked up the strip to check out the dining options. Our only requirement for lunch: outdoor seating. Us folks from the Northeast are easy to please!

    We eventually decided on Tropics Bar & Grill, which had a nice-looking patio and a bunch of tasty options on the menu.

    There was about a 15 minute wait for a table, so Mal and I headed over to the bar to get a drink.

    When I sat down, the bartender handed me a drink menu, which was filled with pages and pages of colorful drink options. There were all sorts of usual cocktails and drinks to choose from!

    After much debate (seriously, I spent a good 5 minutes trying to pick the best option), I went with the Lychee Acai Cooler, which was made with Absolut Berri Acai Vodka, Funkin Lychee Puree, Sprite, and Sweet n Sour mix.

    It sounded like the most “tropical” option and, boy, was it delicious! It sort of reminded me of a sweet and sour peach ring gummy candy. Yum!

    A little while later, our table was ready and we scored a great spot overlooking the beach.

    Fresh lychee? Delicious!

    Life is good.

    For lunch, I ordered the Coconut Crusted Shrimp, which came with a housemade hot pepper jelly. Loved it.

    Question of the Day

    What’s your favorite “tropical” cocktail?

    Mine: Skinny Piña Colada, Blue Crush from the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas (I drank like 10 of them in 4 days), and now the Lychee Acai Cooler.

    My favorite cocktail is a Cosmopolitain. But that probably doesn’t count as tropical though…

    I don’t typically drink mixed beverages so I don’t have a favorite! I agree with previous posters, holy six pack! That’s my goal, I’d love a 6 pack.
