Vegan Dinner at Ha Long Bay 1

Ha Long Bay is a vegan-friendly restaurant that serves delicious Thai & Vietnamese food.

Note: To accommodate more people, there is a duplicate dinner on Wednesday, June 11.

Our completely vegan dinner will be served family style.

Appetizers
Fresh Vegetable Spring Roll with Peanut Sauce (gluten free)

Yum Tofu Salad (gluten free)

Entrees
Yellow Curry Vegetable (gluten free)
Mild Thai curry with coconut milk, potato, and onion.

Xào Lạc (gluten free)

Squash Curry (gluten free)
Red curry sauce with zucchini, acorn squash, butternut squash, Thai eggplant, bamboo, and basil.

Drunken Noodle
Stir-fried munduck with large rice noodle, chili paste, onion, mushroom, tomato, broccoli, peapod, and basil.

Dessert

(gluten free)

Beverages
Arnold Palmers are included (iced tea/lemonade combo). Wine, beer, and soda will be available for an extra charge.

The $15.00 fee includes the tax, tip, and everything mentioned above (except the noted beverages). That breaks down to about $11.00 for the meal, plus tax, tip, and a little to cover the meetup.com and PayPal fees.


RSVP/Payment Info:
Pre-payment is required to RSVP (see exception below). Meetup.com automates this process when you pay via PayPal. If you want to pay by check, contact me and I will give you my mailing address. I will manually update your RSVP as soon as I receive your request, but since our events fill up quickly, out of fairness to other group members I will remove the RSVP if the check is not received within four business days.

Special honor system exception: If you have been in the group for a while and have a history of attending and paying for events without any problems you can contact me about paying me at the event. This accommodation is provided as a convenience -- you are still responsible for paying even if you do not attend

Important Note: I will manually update the RSVPs of people who pay by check or use the honor system, but it's possible the event will fill up before I check my email. If that happens I will add you to the waiting list.

Fee Disclosure:
The $15.00 fee includes a little extra to cover PayPal's fees (74 cents) as well as Meetup.com's $144 annual cost.

Refund Policy:
If you cancel on or before June 8 you will get a full refund. There are no refunds for cancellations after the deadline or if you do not show up to the event. If something comes up at the last minute you are welcome to find someone else to attend instead of you. The reason refunds are not given after the deadline is that I agree to pay for everyone who has paid me at that point.

What about kids?
Kids 8 and under pay $7.50. Young children who will only nibble off of your plate can attend at no charge. Please note in the comment section of your RSVP if kids will be joining you.

This is a vegetarian group. Why is the dinner vegan?
This group has members who are vegetarian, vegan, and just interested. Everyone is welcome. I think it's important for our events to have a menu that not only has something for everyone, but where everyone can eat everything.

    I really enjoyed the variety and quantity of food and loved that they had a good dessert. The drink was one of the better Arnold Palmers (sweet tea + sweet lemonade = a sweat drink) that I've tried. They usually taste synthetic to me be this one had a floral flavor.

    The tea was overly sweet and it would be better if in the future, we could request unsweetened iced tea and guests could add their own sweetener if they wished. For some reason I have had a very mild low-grade nausea since our meal, and my husband feels the same, so I wonder if we could have eaten something bad. Does anyone else notice anything like this?

      I agree with you about the tea. It wasn't very refreshing. The rest of the meal was fabulous. I've not felt ill at all since the dinner. I'm sorry you and your husband are feeling under the weather.

      Yes, I came home and got actually got sick. I didn't have this experience with the first meetup there. I agree about the sweetness of the tea. I think that all four of us at our table thought it was too sweet, and one person thought to ask a server for ice water then. It would be nice if ice water was either also included or was an option.

    They served a nice variety of dishes, and everything was hot and fresh. It would be hard to name a favorite because I liked all of the dishes, but I'd have to say I liked the curry best. It is such a treat to have dessert as well. Who'd have thought that rice could make such a tasty dessert? I also appreciated the professional and efficient service. I enjoyed pleasant conversation with my tablemates (Dave, Liz, and Noah), so it was really an enjoyable evening for me.

    I ate too much. I feel like a drunk noodle.
