Brunch at Virginia-Highland’s neighborhood tiki bar includes spam musubi over rice wrapped in nori, tropical stuffed French toast filled with fruit cream cheese, and hash made with taro and potatoes, served with two sunny eggs and the option to add braised beef. The heavy, carb-ladened dishes on the menu are certainly necessary to soak up the amount of alcohol present in one of Tiki Iniki’s riffs on Trader Vic’s classics like the mai tai, gin-based Singapore sling with pineapple molasses, or a shared scorpion bowl consisting of rum, brandy, and orgeat.
This is the very definition of a boozy brunch.
Eater Atlanta is trying to confirm whether the law allowing the sale of alcohol to begin at 11 a.m. on Sundays at Atlanta restaurants is in effect. The vote was certified in both Dekalb and Fulton counties Tuesday. However, mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms must sign off on the ordinance. She is expect to do so.
Take a look at the brunch menu:
Tiki Iniki is located on Greenwood Avenue. It’s owned by Brett Holtzclaw and Bill Chapman of Atlanta’s Supper Club Restaurant Group. The partners announced they would be opening a franchise version of the original Tiki Iniki, owned by Michele Rundgren and rock guitarist Todd Rundgren in Kauai, Hawaii, in June. The Rundgrens are not involved with the Virginia-Highland location.
Open Tuesday - Thursday, 4:20 p.m. to 12 a.m.; Friday and Saturday, 4:20 p.m. to 1 a.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.
