26.11.2011 19:00 to 22:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich (Oerlikon)
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Dapur Indonesia

Amigos (friends), after much talk, it's here.

Rijsttafel at Dapur Indonesia!
SUBSCRIPTION LIMIT: 20 PEOPLE (restaurant cannot handle a bigger group)

Say what????
An 11-course meal for every participant, with all the following yummy foods included:

Beef Rendang
Chicken Sate ayam
Duck Bebek
Prawn Udang Kemiri
Fish Gurame
Kanghung (Water Spinach)
Tofu
Bala (Vegi Cake)
Martabale
Aubergine
Chicken Ayam Rice

As you can see, a wide variety of choice - meat, fish, veggies, seafood, etc. to please everyone. Plus a coffee at the end (included in the price).

Where?
Dapur Indonesia
Schaffhauserstr. 373
8050 Zürich - Oerlikon
http://dapur-indonesia.ch/


Price?
69CHF per person inclusive of the coffee at the end but exclusive of the drinks during the meal.

What do you need to do?
This is a special menu that the chef is cooking just for us upon request. This means that, a couple of days prior to the dinner, we need to close the RSVP and call the chef to confirm the exact number of attendees. This also means that we will need a CHF 30 deposit from you if you decide to attend, no later than Thursday, November 24 to secure your spot. No deposit, no party - sorry. You will then pay your balance (CHF 39 plus the drinks) on the day of the dinner, directly to the restaurant.

Deposit collection
There are a few ways that you can pay your deposit:
1. Directly to me at the German Conversation Group on either of the following Wednesdays from now till the event: Nov. 9 or 23.
2. Directly to me at this lunch event in Zurich.
3. If you can't make either option, please PM me or forum member gourmet to arrange a mutually convenient time/place.
4. I cannot guarantee (depending on work commitments), but one of us or both might also be at the Viadukt some/all Thursdays this month. We will update this thread if that's the case.

What else?
I know it is quite a bit of money, however, I invite you all to read this thread for some raving reviews of the place. I cannot say enough how much I love this restaurant, both for the food and the outstanding service.

I hope many of you will make it!

Re: A Taste of Indonesia - Dinner in Zurich SPECIAL EDITION

Please do let me know if you have any dietary requirement before Wednesday so that I can inform the restaurant. For those of you not yet made a deposit, please contact me to arrange to do so.

See you all Saturday! 6 more sleep

Nom. And this week, lettuce and water, I promise

Seriously, just a reminder that I will be at the German Conversation Group this Wednesday and both gourmet and I will be at the Viadukt this Thursday if you haven't yet paid and/or you haven't already got in touch to make other arrangements with gourmet.

Have a wonderful week!

Re: A Taste of Indonesia - Dinner in Zurich SPECIAL EDITION

Confirmation: Deposit paid to restaurant and booking confirmed!

The deposit is non-refundable and if you do not turn up on the night, I will have your share . The restaurant will bill you individually for your food and drink.

Nom Nom, two more sleep and remember, loose clothing on the night! See you all at 7!

See this post from @Gourmet, one of the organizers, from earlier in the thread on November 11th, regarding parking possibilities and directions on how to get there from Bahnof Oerlikon.

Y'all enjoy the evening and the delish food!

Re: A Taste of Indonesia - Dinner in Zurich SPECIAL EDITION

If coming from Zurich HB with the train, below a couple of options:

S14 at 18:42 towards Hinwil, stop Zurich Oerlikon (18:48)

S16 at 18:47 towards Thayngen, stop Zurich Oerlikon (18:53)

From the station, it's a 300mt walk according to Google - gourmet has given precise pointers earlier in the thread.

See you later!

Anyone coming for an Apero to "S.Ips Pub" around 6pm? The pub is about 50m from the restaurant on the opposite side of the street.

Re: A Taste of Indonesia - Dinner in Zurich SPECIAL EDITION

Do we have a reserve list? I popped my back again and am prone of the sofa waiting for the med's to kick in, but may have to bail. Sorry it's such short notice

I'm already hung over so might as well join for more punishment, if I can get out of bed.
