HELP recalling Secaucus Polynesian restaurant 1979

My brothers all lived in Secaucus in the late 70's. We often gathered at a tiki joint on Rt. 3. Trying to get my brother a 'fog cutter' (sweet & potent cocktail) cup on ebay for Christmas. We remember to food being pretty good and the drinks always flowed. Anybody remember the name? Thanks.

  1. You're sure it wasn't Lee's Hawaiian Islander in Lyndhurst?

      I was thinking Lee's also.

    2. A friend who grew up in Passaic has also mentioned Jade...Palace(?) from her childhood-- not sure where it was but I'm going to ask her about this...

        Jade Fountain, one in Clifton, one in Lyndhurst.

          and one was in Paramus as well.

      2. Secaucus, Rt 3. Pretty sure it was the eastbound side.

          1. Yes, yes, yes! South Seas. After drinking his third Zombie, my brothers would call it "Sow See". Thanks again. I did google it with the year, but came up empty.

              :-). Glad I could help!

            2. That's the one--thx

              1. SO bizarre--when does one ever see/read about tiki stuff these days? Today's Tasting Table (NYC edition) email has a whole article about a place in Chicago--and mentions a book that might be of interest to you gift-wise:
