Update on Asian Aroma: Yes it's back in business, remodeling plan seems to be changed, and Nora talked to them, they opened again on Jan 20th, we will keep it in mind for a future dinner meetup!! Thanks Thomas for the heads-up!
Seoul Garden is the pick for our alternative this time, it is an excellent Korean restaurant in this area, and offers a great menu that has all the traditional favorites such as beef BBQ, Tofu Stew, there are vegetarian dishes as well, if you like spicy food you will have some good companions in the group.
1) There's no limit on number of guests because we will be in a private room for a large size of group, the restaurant will line up the tables and the room holds up to 60 people. However, I was asked to call back in the morning of Jan 23 to confirm the final number of guests so PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP if necessary.
2) Please note the location has been changed to Raleigh, and the meeting time has been changed to 7PM.
3) There's no extra charge for using the private room however there's no discount offered either. If you find any coupon please let us know!
4) Here is a good intro to some traditional Korean food, if you have any dietary request, please email me (vegan, certain meats, allergic to specific food, etc.), my email is cynthiaqiu at gmail dot com.
Thanks and look forward to a great time!
