What we're about

Calling all Foodies! let's share our craze for food by hunting & experimenting different restaurants and hidden gems in our region & beyond! We'll meet bi-weekly at a restaurant to taste spicy/non-spicy food. Happy Food Huntin'


A little bit of housekeeping during our meetups:

1. Bringing family members including children is permitted, but please use your discretion as we discuss adult topics that may or may not be suitable for children

2. We pay for own meal separately.

3. During instances when we order larger communal platters hint: "The China Bowl Sichuan food Meetup," we will split one bill evenly. Alcohol will be on your own separate bill.

4. Alcohol should be on your own separate bill and we ask our members to drink responsibly.

Note: we are always looking for recommendations on restaurants. Please feel free to put your recommendation on ethnic restaurants/cafe/bar. Please put your recommendations on the discussion board and we will follow through.
