Leader: Sam Hung
What’s this club about?: Been to afternoon tea and love it or never been but want to try? Want to try those finer dining restaurants but dinner prices are sometimes a turn off? Then this club is right up your alley. This dine out club is about savoring the luxuries of food. On our food escapades we will either have a relaxing afternoon mixing sweet and savory with the perfect accompaniment of gourmet teas or visit a fancy lunch spot. It’s about treating yourself to something extra special because you most definitely deserve it!
Event times: Saturday or Sunday afternoon
Average cost of each event: Anywhere from $12 – 30 depending on the restaurant and how much you order
Possible event locations: Secret Tea Garden, Faubourg, Urban Tea Merchant, Vij’s Rangoli, La Crocodile, Hawksworth or anymore else you might fancy! I am very open to suggestions and ideas so don’t be shy!
More about your leader: I am a food fanatic! Currently, I am in 3rd year in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems majoring in Nutritional Sciences. My friends and family make fun of me because I am always thinking about my next meal. I figure if I need to eat to sustain myself why not eat what I love? I recently backpacked through Europe and it was an amazing culinary experience. After the trip, I realized that I LOVE Italian food and am addicted to Pierre Hermés macarons, especially the Pistachio, Ceylon Cinnamon and Morella Cherries flavored ones. Strange combination but genius! Hope to meet you fellow foodies during this year!
Proposed first event: Let’s start out with afternoon tea at Faubourg! They have two afternoon tea sets called Pink and Purple. Faubourg is located in Kerrisdale close to the intersection of West Boulevard and West 41st Ave.
