City/Town: Bern Speichergass 27

Meeting Point: Kung-Fu Burger restaurant, Speichergasse

On Tuesday 10th February we are going to try the USA
style burgers at Kung-Fu Burger restaurant.

(It used to be a Chinese take away)

Pete recommends it, so it should be good!

http://www.kungfu-burger.com/

As usual, we ask you to reserve a place on the form below,
and please only firm reservations
(- no "maybe" thank you, how will I know if you are coming?)
As the restaurant is small, we will have to restrict the event
to a maximum of 22 dinner guests!

Menu,

That's definitely part of the awesomeness. The food is also quite tasty.

I have completed my survey of all existing burger restaurants from Geneva to Montreux.

Guess it's time to cross the RostiLine.

Would be interesting to compare this to Holy Cow.

The whole concept, vibe, and menu are very similar to that of Holy Cow. Copy/Paste restaurant concept?

The difference is that Kung Fu is more expensive and they have sides, which HC doesn't have. I want, like, six of them! Don't let me order 6 of them!!!

Go on order six then I can try them without having to order them myself.

It's exactly the same distance Basel to Bern as Lausanne to Bern. So no one should have any excuse not to go to the Bern dinners.

Noted for future events when you claim you can't make it.

Is it what used to be restaurant Peking? Anyone fancy meeting up beforehand, either in Boomerang's next door, or the Turnhalle opposite?

Re: Bern Dinner Club, (Tuesday 10th February) US style Burgers

I called the restaurant and ordered tables for 14 guests, on Tuesday 10th February at 7pm. They informed me that is fine with them, and the maximum number will have to be 22 guests. Reservation is under "English Club"... but I don't think you will miss us!

The reservation list will have to close at 9 am on Saturday 7th February, as the restaurant wish to know exactly how many are coming.

Re: Bern Dinner Club, (Tuesday 10th February) US style Burgers

I'm a bit of a bugger for a burger, so I've had a word with my probation officer, and as my rehabilitation back into society is almost on schedule, I've got an evening pass, so barring accidents or incidents, I should have reduced your outstanding to only four.
But will be flying solo.

Re: Bern Dinner Club, (Tuesday 10th February) US style Burgers

Some crazy magic is afoot on CFF... trying to buy billets dégriffés for Tuesday night. The search results show such tickets available at one price, then when I try to select my tickets later (after entering in one's details), a higher price is shown (not as high as the standard price, but higher than that shown in the search results).

Looking forward to this. I probably won't make any pre-meal drinks, but will definitely be there for the main event.

Sorry, I cannot come tomorrow as planned, so there are 2 more seats available, which have now been taken.

Unless someone has a special wish, next month we could go to the Domino, middle east cuisine, http://www.domino-bern.ch/index.php/speisekarte.html
