Hot Pot and More!

(aka: I’m really bad at maintaining this website!)

I am so bad about taking pictures when there’s delicious food in front of me. Fortunately, I’ve been able to convince some of our members to take photos even when I totally forget.

Before I get to the photos to drool over, let’s catch up real quick with our activities since December:

In January, we took a Saturday afternoon to enjoy some rare winter sun and delicious Indian food at my favorite North-Indian/Pakistani restaurant, Royal India. As always, the food there was incredible from the naan to the curried goat, the raita to the tandoor chicken. It’s all delicious there, and always a consistently good meal.

In February, we took a refreshing dip in the Sichuan hot pots of Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Bellevue. This place is an addictive treat and everyone had great fun. Once again, Twitter’s @ObelysArt crafted a pair of incredible paintings for the event. She really outdid herself this time and we’re so, so grateful for the incredible work she puts into our swag.

P.S. Look out for a shop from us soon. I’m working on getting the art transferred to high quality t-shirts. There’s some speed-bumps right now as I search for a quality print-on-demand site, but we should have branded t-shirts hopefully in the next few months!

Indian food started out so peaceful and serene…
And then we all arrived and attacked the buffet like starved college freshmen.
There are no individual food shots because, well, we were all too busy stuffing ourselves silly.
Oh the humanity!
The devastation!
The noms!
Incredible art from Obelys entitled Birth of Swinus.
Here’s the beautiful Lunar New Year piece on the backside of the laminate.
Check out the incredible details like the zodiac wheel on the moon!
Sauces and chilies and more!
Frozen tofu, bean curd roll, wood ear and enoki mushrooms, black cardamom and more floating in a roiling delicious broth. Ah. Heaven.
