The Book Of Tiki

We mourn the passing of tiki-themed restaurant Bahooka

This month, Southern California will say goodbye to an institution. Bahooka, one of the few surviving examples of mid-century, South-Pacific themed “tiki”-style restaurants, is closing after 50 years in business. Rico visits the eatery and talks tiki with with Sven Kirsten, the author of “The Book Of Tiki,” a sort of the Bible on the subject.
