Tiki Tuesday at Hula’s Island Grill in Monterey

Melanie Wong | Jul 1, 2014 06:33 PM

Hula’s Island Grill is oft voted tops in happy hour on the Monterey Peninsula. On Tuesdays, happy hour lasts all night from opening at 2pm until close. A few weeks ago a friend and I met here for an afternoon drink, a first time for both of us.!happy-hour...

We shared:

Spicy edamame – My favorite of the three, given a nice sear, tossed with chile flakes and garlic, and served hot. Very flavorful and addictive.

Samurai beef sticks – Nicely marinated, juicy and tender beef kabobs.

Abalone style calamari – My friend’s favorite, giant squid steaks with deep-fried in an egg wash then cut into fingers and doused with a lemony-garlic sauce. A second dipping sauce added more pizzaz.

Drinks were colorful, and not the dilute versions that are the bane of happy hour offerings nearly everywhere.

Hula’s is located a couple blocks from Cannery Row. The food and drink are better than they need to be. I’d return for a quick bite and fun atmosphere.
