Trader Vic’s Wordwide has a rich and storied history of success and innovation that all began in 1934 when the ebullient Vic “The Trader” Bergeron built a cozy little saloon on San Pablo Avenue in Oakland, California that he called Hinky Dinks. After embarking on an adventure to Cuba to refine his skills as a bartender and explore the subtleties of rums from around the world, The Trader eventually landed in Hawaii and completely immersed himself in island living and culture. Upon his return home, his objective was clear: inject the spirit of the island into our everyday lives.Today, the Trader Vic’s family of restaurants is known as Trader Vic’s Worldwide and is recognized across the globe. Taste The World through exotic cuisines and happily imbibe from a collection of expertly crafted libations at Trader Vic’s, the Home of the Original Mai Tai.
Traders Vic’s celebrates its 12th Anniversary with great pomp and shows from Selfie competition, serving Mai Tai’s, Girls on dance floors to bands everything was an event not to be missed. From September 18 to 24, guests can buy a Mai Thai at its 2004 price of US $11 (AED42) and order ‘vintage’ dishes that are no longer available on the dinner menu, at the old prices. There are also ‘buy one get one free’ lunch options, live bands and performances throughout the week, as well as chances to win prizes.
A s we settled i ordered my Mocktails for the evening, Strawberry Daiquiry. It was perfectly done with strawberry puree, lemon juice, dash of grenadine. It was a relishing treat to oneself, the strawberry can be felt on every sip.
For the light bites we were served on tables with Smoked Salmon, Tuna Tartare, Caprese. They were delectable bites of delicacy, perfectly done and smoked salmon being my favorite so it was my personal hit of the evening.
Peri Peri Prawns, Cheese Balls and Veg Spring Rolls served with a Garlic Mayo and Chilli Sauce. The best part was a bucket full of flames was given to us to grill our prawns according to our choice, o wow what an Idea!!!. My favorite was the cheese balls, it melted in my mouth after every bite.
As it was getting fully loaded up we ordered for our second set of Mocktails and this time it was the Pinna Colada and Margherita.
The cake was the best part of the evening, just with the theme of Traders Vic’s done by my favorite bakery shop the Sugaholic BakeShop located in Karama.
Overall it was an amazing birthday celebration with all pomps and hues, the cake was amazing, the food served were very delectables and the drinks were the best part.
