MARCH RUSSIAN FEAST


















Well we are now a big group and I know most of us are always thinking of new, interesting and delicious places to eat. Since we live in and around one of the great global cities, Osaka, let's take advantage to try one of my favourite cuisines, RUSSIAN!!!

This restaurant is full of specialties perfect for weather which is still a bit chilly. Bortsch and many other favourites.
Web site - http://www.pantry-russia.jp/
Tabelog - http://tabelog.com/osaka/A2702/A270205/27009746/

The exact menu will be decided later but I am aiming for around 4000 yen and including some drinks. Please expect :
BORTSCH
CHICKEN KIEV
PIROSHKI
and some vegetarian options if you need them.

I am sure there is even plenty of vodka if you want to make it very authentically Russian! :)

Anyway I hope many new faces will come and I am looking forward to this event with you all. More details soon but please sign up now if interested!

    It was my first time to join you last night. I was surprised how hard the organizers worked for the feast and much appreciate it. The restaurant was cosy, and staffs were nice.
    I expect that we will explore nice places in Kansai and hope you guys come to Nara where I live!

      Well Minori-san thanks - that is so nice to read these messages, it makes all the hard work worthwhile. Since Ryuichi is moving to Kobe and we are going to call it Eat Kansai in future, Kansai definitely includes Nara so I think that is a great idea! Feel free to suggest some places you think would be good for our group :) Hope to see you again soon! Cheers and hi to your friend too !!

    I enjoyed meeting great people over delicious food. Russian food was an interesting suggestion, the organizers got a great banquet deal, and they always made sure that everyone's having good time.

    What a cool little place! I'm thrilled with Rich for having rooted it out for us, and for having persuaded them to include pelmeni for me (just as I remembered them, by the way). A really ebullient evening with lots of banter and plenty of fantastic food - a real treat. Thanks again

    2 · March 10, 2013

    • Rich

      Thanks Caitlin. I was equally happy and touched that they tried so hard to accommodate every request. Definitely worth another visit, I am sure you would agree. Thanks a lot for coming and hope to see you at a future event!

    This was an awesome event. First off, the food was great and very good. Also, even though our table was separate from the group, we had a great time and several members came by. It was great.
    Rich did a great job organizing it and I am sure everyone realizes how hard you had to work to do that. Thanks
    I look forward to the next time I can join you all.

    • Rich

      David, I aim to please. Thanks very much for your incredible energy and good-humoured support. I am sorry you guys were cut off by a wall there but I think I left you in good company (!) Anyway I do really appreciate the chance to meet and enjoy good fun with all you guys. Looking forward to more but it will probably be April for me now. Have fun at all the rest! Cheers and catch up then!

  • Rich

    I am reposting this from my profile update but I am sure no-one minds. Thank you everyone for coming!!! Particular big thanks to all new people, whom I hope will stay in touch and meet up and come again. Another meetup finished successfully. Apart from a few little issues, all went great, fantastic food from the shop which tried incredibly hard and left us all stuffed extremely full of smoked salmon, piroshki, beef stroganoff, chicken kiev, ice cream and Russian tea with jam. So in other words, feels like I have just been munching in Moscow ;) Thanks to all friends old and new for coming. 次に楽しみにしています!

  • Yuko

    Thank you for giving me room, Rich-san. :)
    This is going to be my first attendance to a meet up, and I'm feeling nervous..., though I'm excited at the same time!

    Well, I'm afraid I'm gonna be a bit late, about 30 min, because of my work. (But I'll definitely come.) What should I do?

    1 · March 8, 2013

    • Rich

      Hi - just come when you can, I will make sure there is food and a seat for you and a friendly welcome! Daijobu desu!! You will love it ! I am very glad I could include you. De wa mata ashita! I will send last reminder for people how to get to the restaurant tonight.

      March 8, 2013

    • Yuko

      Thank you! I'm really looking forward to seeing you tomorrow, with Russian feast. :D

      March 8, 2013

  • Rich

    (SORRY - previous message said Sunday by mistake. Reconfirming here, my dinner is SATURDAY NOT SUNDAY! Apologies for the simple error! Thank you Minori-san and Michiko-san for pointing it out)

    Hi all of you!
    Thanks very much for supporting my Russian event this Saturday. I am so excited to enjoy this unique experience with you and hope you all share that excitement.
    Please let me write a short note as follows - with respect and as a friendly reminder:
    1. Please do not cancel after today, anyone who is not 100% sure if they can come or not, please give up your place for a waiting list person. I hope all people who have signed up though can definitely make it!

    2. At the moment, I have 15 places. I am double checking with the owner today whether 20 is possible. If it is possible (he will let me know today), I will open up the places for the waiting list people.

    March 7, 2013

  • Minori T.

    Gosh! No spots left already? It's pity...I love russian food and vodka.
    I'm joining the waitlist anyway...

    1 · February 24, 2013

    • Minori T.

      Thank you for your note. We'd be pleased to join the event. Can you reconfirm that the event is on 9th Saturday, not 10th Sunday?

      1 · March 7, 2013

    • Rich

      SORRY YES!!! It is on 9th Saturday! I apologise, I was rather hungry and tired when posting before. It is Saturday 9th :) Thank you for your polite correction!

      March 7, 2013

  • Rich

    (continued)
    3. Event will be 7-9pm (we can probably stay a bit later!) under my name, Richard MORT.
    4. Am aiming to include BORTSCH (牛肉をビーツ・タマネギ・にんじん・キャベツなどの野菜で煮込みサワークリームを添えて食するロシアの煮込み料理), PIROSHIKI, CHICKEN KIEV, PELMENI, some vegetable/salad and dessert, plus 2 drinks. I am sure it will be a hearty meal and you will get value for money. I am aiming for 4500 yen maximum per person but will let you all know and if 4000 yen is possible, I will do my best. Again, this will be confirmed today and I will let you know. Please do bear in mind that Russian food and restaurants are rarer than Italian/Chinese/French etc. and so that is why it is a little more expensive. Thanks for understanding!

    5. One vegetarian is confirmed, am making arrangements for that. If anyone else can't eat anything for any reason, please inform me immediately - thanks !

    Any questions, please email me via meetup or message on the noticeboard for this event.
    All the best, Your co-organiser Rich

    I would like to have the vegetarian option; I'm not sure if I should tell this beforehand or not, but better safe then sorry :)

      Rita - noted - thanks for reminder ! Will make sure that is taken care of.

      March 3, 2013

  • Caitlin M.

    Sure, I'll get "authentically Russian." May I make a special request that you include some pelmeni if they're available? I haven't had them in years!

    1 · February 22, 2013

    • David

      Rich, that is awesome. Good job. This will be a very cool Russian extravaganza.

      February 27, 2013

    Hi everyone! I am a Canadian living in Kobe and new to the group. Russian food looked too interesting to pass up, so I look forward to meeting everybody!

    1 · February 24, 2013

    • Rich

      Alexander, you are most welcome and thanks for coming. Your photo has "a hint" of Russian about it to my mind, so I am sure you will enjoy this evening!

      February 25, 2013

  • David

    I don't know Russian food at all. This will be fun.

    1 · February 23, 2013
