Bahooka interior showing clutter

This weekend on Good Food, independent producer Gideon Brower bids farewell to Bahooka Family Restaurant in Rosemead. The tiki-themed restaurant will close its doors forever after service this Sunday, March 10th. Looking at the photo above, it’s no surprise that Bahooka was a cult favorite for decades. As Los Angeles Magazine’s Chris Nichols points out, “It’s so psychedelic that it makes complete sense that they filmed Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas there.”

Listen to Brower’s piece below.

For more on the design and architecture of Bahooka Family Restaurant, check out Brower’s blog post on the DNA Blog. See photos of Bahooka’s interior after the jump.
