early June 2013 -- ChowMeet at MoKoMandy for dinner? Edit: 6pm on Tuesday 11 June probable date
6pm on Tuesday 11 June
My schedule is really flexible if I can plan ahead, so I'm not fixed on a day yet.
Please comment if another day or time is better.
They're only open evenings 5-10 or Sunday Brunch. The brunch menu doesn't seem as group-share friendly.
Although it would be mind- and table- blowing, if we could get 12+ folks, then we could actually order 1 of everything, which would tally out to <$45 per person, Including tax + 18 grat but not including drinks (or other tips).
I have visions of how cool that could be-- "Yes, we'll just take 1 of everything, to share."

Ooh, I've been wanting to try this place. Btw, the other problem with the brunch menu is that there are no foie gras dumplings on it! That's a must for me.
The 11th is OK, not great - would rather do Thursday the 13th, but let's see what other responses we get. But count 2 people in for sure.
