If you love ethnic food/international dining, cooking, culture and diversity, meeting new foodie friends then this is the group for you. North County has a reputation for not having interesting ethnic food choices, so let's investigate and see what we can find! I have stumbled across a few gems in the past year or so and will share them with you. Let's see what you have discovered! This is not the group for basic tacos, Chinese take-out, burgers, or beer halls, etc... We search for authentic, bright, unusual foods bursting with flavor! Most dining outings will be in North County, (Poway, Escondido, San Marcos out to the coast) but, we will have, occasional treks into San Diego proper. If you love to cook, and share recipes we may also hold themed potlucks at members' homes. True foodies, epicures, couples, singles ethnic food lovers, all are welcome to join! But please don't let us be a notch on your Meetup Belt! We would like serious members.
A few rules:
1} If you do not come visit our page after 6 months, you will be removed from the group. We are not looking for lurkers or people who want to see how many groups they can belong to or just picking the best option of the day. We want active members who are interested in our outings and topic, even if you cant make an event see what we have going. Looking for true foodies!
2} If you sign up for an event and then can not make it please try to give 48 hours notice. This will give people on a waitlist the ability to join us. Also almost of the time we do have reservations and it is only fair to the restaurant especially if they have to bring in extra staff to help serve us.
3} While dues are not required at this time, it does cost to run a meetup group. When you feel comfortable and think you may stick around, donations are appreciated to help with running the group.
4} We occasionally will allow guests, at the time you RSVP if you want to bring someone do it then. If they back out please update you RSVP so people on a waitlist can attend.
5} If you have 3 no shows for events that you signed up for you will be removed from the group.
6} If you would like to host a Meetup let the organizer know and we will gladly let you do that.
Most of all we want you to come on the dining adventure with us and hopefully makes some friends along the way!
