Japanese Culture Exchange Over Vietnamese Dinner!
みなさん、こんにちは!サミーです。このイベントはオーガナイザーとして初めてです。楽しみにしています。宜しくお願いします! Hi all! My name is Sammy and this will be my first time hosting an event with this group. Than Viというインタナショナル区にあるベトナムレストランで会いましょう。色な皆が知らないベトナム料理を紹介したいです。 Let's meet at Than Vi restaurant in the international district for some refreshing Vietnamese cuisine! There are many Vietnamese dishes that most people are unfamiliar with, especially dishes that can be shared family style. I would like to introduce and share some of these with you. A fun dinner to share with groups is "goi cuon" or commonly known as summer rolls. My family always makes these together, and you can make/eat them as you go, which is fun right?! Depending on group size, I will order other small shared dishes, but the main event will be wrapping our own goi cuons! 今回のミートアップでは、インターナショナル地区にある、普段とは少し違った、新鮮な、Than Vi ザンヴィーレストランへ行きます。ここでは一般的には余り知られていない、大皿から皆で取分けて楽しみのがお勧めのメニューが沢山あります。この中でも、特にぜひ皆さんに楽しんで頂きたいものを、今回のミートアップでは、紹介させて頂きます。中でもお気に入りなのが、Goi Cuon、または一般的に知られている名前はサマーロール、生春巻きです。僕の家族はいつもこれを、家族でワイワイいいながら、味見をしつつ、作ったものです。ぜひ、手作りのGoi cuonsを一緒に巻いて楽しみましょう。自分で作った料理は本当に楽しくて、美味しいものです。 今回のミートアップでは取分け易い、小ぶりなサイズでのオーダーをする予定です。 Since going to restaurants as a group can be a challenge, I hope you all don't mind me taking the liberty with the menu/ordering/bill. I will order according to the size of our group, and be sure to order enough for everyone while keeping the budget at or under $20 per person (if you want to add a beverage, add $5). Any remaining amount will go towards tax/tip. Please be sure to bring cash or have Venmo. Google Maps: Thanh Vi 大人数でレストランへ行く時には、意外な問題が起こったりするものです。僕がまとめて皆の分を注文しますが、皆さん、どうぞ、注文についてはお手柔らかに。アレルギーや、食の好みが在れば、前もって知らせて頂けると助かります。予算としては一人、食事代で20ドル、飲み物を加えて+$5。現金で当日支払い、又はVenmoでお支払いをお願いします。当日お会いできるのを楽しみにしています。 1046 S Jackson St, Seattle, WA 98104 (206) 329-0208 Looking forward to seeing you all! P.S. The main food items will be: pork, shrimp, noodles, vegetables, mints, fish sauce, spices.

What we're about

Public Group

We're the area's most active Japanese Meetup, with a lively group of people who speak or are learning Japanese. We have regular, casual meetings to socialize in Japanese and English, usually over dinner. Native speakers are welcomed, intermediate Japanese speakers get lots of practice, and beginners are encouraged to ask questions to learn more.

We rarely set an agenda. This isn't a classroom; it's primary an opportunity to get to know people who are connected to Japan in some way. Most of the time we go somewhere for dinner, but members sometimes plan coffee gatherings, local adventures, happy hours, or occasionally, structured events. If you're trying to learn something specific, please feel free to bring materials or books that cover your topic and feel free to ask for help. We don't have any formal lesson plans, but many people will be glad to help you out on something with which you're struggling.

Thursday night dinner Meetups: Always in Seattle, but the neighborhood varies. Once or twice a month: Coffee Meetup, usually in-city, now hosted rather irregularly, but you are welcome to step up. There's usually an event about once a month on the Eastside. Occasional events: Karaoke/Happy Hour. Irregular: Southend/Northend events, private home parties. (You can always volunteer to organize these) Please sign up to keep informed! Suggestions? Email Jason.
