Okay, let's get this thing rolling again. I'd like to start up the monthly meals, especially the ethnic ones we used to do.  

 

I talked to Nan at ImJai and they're interested in doing a meal for us that would be mostly specials they have for Thai customers. All the specials I've tried have been very good.  They have a lot of dishes you rarely see elsewhere that are either off-menu things you have to be offered or are part of a rotating specials menu they have.

 

I'm thinking max 20 people, family style, about 2 dishes per person with plenty of leftovers, enough for another meal or two, for about $20 to $25 per head before tip or beverage. (So that we can try more things.)  Probably 7 to 10 different dishes.

 

Who's in?

So do we have 7?  I would be nice to get more than 10 if we can to expand it out to more dishes.  I can send out a mass email to PFG or post on Facebook.

Went in and set up the meal last night.  We have 8 dishes, all off the specials menu.  Should be a good mix of dishes and many of them will be things you've never had before. I've personally only tried about half of them.

It will be served family style.  I have two orders of each dish, so 16 plates for 12 people.  If we need more, we can order more, but I suspect it will be enough.

PortlandFood.org is back in action?! Tammi just told me about this. I would love to come if I can. Is there room for one or two more? I'm not sure if John can come, but I'd sure love to.
