Dinner & Conversation (Oakridge)

The hosts of Richmond/Oakridge Mandarin Meetup are happy to organize new activities suggested by some members. If you have any new ideas, please suggest them to any host. We will try our best to organize them.

Our first activity will be a "Dinner & Conversation" gathering at the Flamingo Chinese Restaurant.

Since this gathering is about food, we will also prepare a topic sheet related to food. Please feel free to suggest food related words/phrases that you like to learn.

As per our regular meetup, we will converse in Mandarin & English. Speakers of all levels are welcomed to this event. We will try to group sitting arrangement by levels so everyone can learn new words & phrases.

Cost: $15 per person (inclusive of food, tea, tax & tips)

Please make sure you come when you RSVP because we need to tell the restaurant the exact number. The restaurant is kind enough to reserve a private room for our group.

You can pay to anyone of the organizers when you arrive.

We will not have our regular Wednesday night conversation meetup that week, due to conflict with Halloween night.

    It's so nice to have this opportunity to get to know everyone. Thanks to John, Eddy, and Lina who did most of the work. I really enjoyed the one on one conversations with most of you. Hopefully, I will remember everyone's name. Let's have more social meetups like this. :)

    Menu is not set yet, it's to be determined by the restaurant manager. There will be a variety of dishes (about 7) served per table so you'll see a mix of everything. Or if needed I could request for a table without seafood.

    • Stephen M.

      Eddy cannot eat fish as well.

      October 19, 2012

  • Stephen M.

    Gerrie cannot eat seafood as well as me.

    October 19, 2012

  • Gerrie

    Btw, I can't eat seafood either.

    October 19, 2012

  • Stephen M.

    Is this a set menu? I ask because I cannot eat seafood.

  • John C.

    This is going to be our first featured event, so RSVP early! And to top it off, we have Gerrie from BCIT meetup dining with us! You don't want to miss this!

    Flamingo is located at Cambie & 59th Ave. Those coming by Skytrain can get off at Langara skytrain station and walk south (downhill). Find us inside the private VIP room in the restaurant.

    The food is generally Southern Chinese style, served in various dishes and shared amongst a round table. There will be a mix of meat and vegetables, with rice and small dessert. If you have any food allergies or request, please contact me.
