Meet others who lack true refinement, lack a regal heritage, and lack a superior attitude towards other cultures. We live in a city of vast ethnic diversity. The idea of this group is to explore that heterogeneity, find other open-minded flavour seekers and do it on a budget. There are hundreds of ethnic, family-owned restaurants, often no frills, but really authentic flavours from around the world. Please have a face picture posted!

SOME BASIC RULES
*If you have far-right political, sexual or racial views, join a different group.
*Be open-minded and tolerant. You don't have to eat super-spicy goat testicles or crunchy insects, but others might. And please be aware that this is NOT a vegetarian group.
*Be a nice person, that's really what it's all about.

PLEASE READ OUR RSVP ETIQUETTE:

SHOW UP or change your RSVP to "NO" the day before.
If you're new and you don't follow that rule, you're out.
If we've met you before, 2 strikes and you're out.

Many of our events have pre-ordered food, so if you don't come or cancel late:

WE would have to pay for YOU
