Island Starters at Hula’s Modern Tiki in Scottsdale
With a background of early 1960s surf music, the efficient servers arrive at your table with a menu inspired from far-off South Pacific locales. To begin, order the Hawaiian Ceviche, a citrus-marinated masterpiece made with fresh white fish, coconut milk, chili cilantro, garlic and wonton chips. For landlubbers, ask your server for an order of Hula’s Chicken Wings served with a spicy Asian BBQ sauce or the Samurai Beef Skewers with pineapple, scallions and a lime-curry sauce. The kitchen also prepares an excellent lobster bisque and a piquant seaweed salad for people who prefer the traditional soup and salad before the entrée.
