As Let's Tiki, I feel it is my duty to sample the world's Mai Tais whenever I come across them. Even, when better judgement says not to. You just never know; a good Mai Tai could be found at a very unexpected location. So, when I was at Red Robin this week the bartender put a drink menu in front of me and the first thing I saw was their Mai Tai. So I ordered one so I could report back to all of you.
The Red Robin Mai Tai was cute looking. They poured a lot of Grenadine in the bottom of the glass to give it a cute smile and floated some dark rum at the top to give the little Mai Tai man a hat. Unfortunately, the cute look was the best part of the Mai Tai. It was very sweet, weak and just tasted a lot like pineapple juice and Grenadine. So, as I suspected I don't need to ever have one of those again. At least the Mai Tai was cute looking. I realize they need to cater to a main stream audience. Oh well.
I had the Burnin' Love Burger for dinner. That was pretty good. It was a cayenne pepper seasoned beef patty with fried jalapeno rings, salsa, pepper jack cheese, and Chipotle Mayo. So if you are at Red Robin and you like a little spice give the Burnin' Love Burger a try. Don't worry it isn't super spicy.
I have a small correction to my post. The rum floating on the top wasn't his hat. It was his hair. I stand corrected. :-)
