A TIKI THIRSTDAY ESCAPE
$6 Trader Vic's style Mai Tais all evening.
:sheckymug: Wearing Tiki / Hawaiian / Island wear is not required, but strongly encouraged and rewarded.
*Though it’s always tiki time at the House of Foong Lin, Thursday night is the restaurant’s long-standing tiki night. Crowds decked out in Hawaiian shirts and straw hats enjoy drink specials — the Mai Tai 44, modeled on Trader Vic’s original recipe; a potent Painkiller; a sweet and pineappley Dr. Foo — while videos of Bora Bora’s palm trees, beaches and blue lagoons play on a large screen.
The Chinese cuisine includes plenty of dishes that would have been familiar to Trader Vic diners: hoisin-heavy spare ribs, crab rangoon, shrimp toast, spicy shrimp dumplings. The drink menu, which contains more than two dozen options, is a relic, too: The blurb for the bitter-heavy Sneaky Tiki warns that “One too many and you’ll know how this drink got its name!” But spend a couple of happy hours at the House of Foong Lin, and you’ll know why it has so many regulars.*
EASY PARKING: There is a 200 space municipal parking lot directly across the street.
Why Drive If You Can Metro: House of Foong Lin is only a 5 minute walk from the Bethesda Metro station.
