*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!

no, we got the same food on both tables.. what give you the idea that we got different food? The chef did complain to me that your table did not eat up! there were loads left!
huh? i thought we ate everything with the exception of the last dish. i guess maybe the veggie dishes were a little unloved since we were mainly carnivores on our table

i did intercept a few dishes to rescue the last remnants as they were being taken away by the waitress (who was also not too hard on the eyes ).

i'd definitely do the 11 courses again. does anyone know if they do this for smaller groups? thinking 2-4 people.
