Open Seattle Japanese Language and Culture Meetup

This week, thanks to another meeting I've got in the international district a bit before our usual meetup time, I'm scheduling us for night of excessive Chinese food consumption at KC Kitchen.

We'll order food to share. Pricing should be shockingly cheap, but I'm not 100% sure of the exact amount; plan for up to $20/person just to be safe.

We'll probably order curried fish balls, dumplings, something involving soft tofu, and a bunch of vegetables, among other things. They serve beer and wine, which we'll handle separately. If you're a stricter vegetarian than I am, let me know ahead of time because I may need to make special requests on the vegetable dishes. If you have any special allergies, please make a note of it in your RSVP.

Bring cash, because credit cards are annoying in large groups. But you knew that already.

Nijikai will probably involve either a crappy karaoke joint stuck in the 50s where you can sing badly in front of strangers or Maekawa/Ft. Ste. George, depending on the size of the group.

    The location for this venue is in the international district on 8th street between Jackson & King street, across the street from HOUSE OF HONG on the I - 5 freeway (East) side of the street. It is right next to another wonderful restaurant GREEN LEAF, just one door North. It is one of my favorite inexpensive places to eat. It has 2 of the friendliest wait staffs, Shirley & Alice (probably not there real names because their Taiwanese names are too hard to remember) are very kind & sweet. I left a sweater there once & they remembered that it was mine & kept it for me 6 months later. Obviously I do not have a sophisticated palate but one of my favorite things there is their Taiwanese sweet & sour pork chops which is different from any sweet/sour you have ever had...see you tomorrow :)
