A Downtown Tasting With Ventura Food Tours!
Ventiki is a tiki lounge in Ventura that is loved dearly by locals. I’ll be honest, when I think of tiki lounges, good food doesn’t come to mind. But Ventiki is the exception and I was so happy to be proven wrong! Before we get to the food, I have to talk about the incredibly friendly staff who are so passionate about what they do. Our bartender made us the best mai tai I’ve ever tasted, and shared with us the history behind the drink as well.
Before I knew it, the chef brought out giant platters of sushi that couldn’t possibly be for just one person. I was proven wrong, yet again. We tried California rolls, salmon rolls, peppered seared ahi, albacore, tiger shrimp, coconut curry rice, and an array of sauces. I was overwhelmed in the best possible way. Everything was so fresh and flavorful, I was genuinely sad to leave.
