Hawai is definitely a destination I intend to visit some day, so having a taste of Hawai “before” actually going there was an amazing experience!
While in Chicago, my friends took me to the Tikki Terrace. It’s an awesome Hawaian restaurant located in Des Plaines (not really far from Chi-city).
One of the things I found interesting about this place was the fact that it’s like a needle in a haystack: a small gem located in the suburb, not downtown. Pretty precious. The food was good, the drinks were better and the hosts and staff were the best! We also got to watch their famous Hula Show (ethnic dancers moving to the Hawaian beats!) and that was really entertaining.
And you know what the best part is? All of this was at an affordable price! Here is how we got the best deals for this place.
- If you intend to go there, don’t expect to see a big display sign indicating that you have arrived at your destination. It’s at a pretty discrete location, so GPS is paramount.
- Make sure you book in advance because the place is always packed and you can’t guarantee a seat if you just randomly walk in.
- Make a reservation for a night when they have the Hula Show. It’s definitely worth it and gives you a better value for your money!
