Chinese New Year Celebration Vegan Buffet Feast

Wednesday, February 13, 2013, 7:15 PM

Peking House Restaurant
2 W. Main St Norwalk OH
Norwalk, OH 44857

The buffet is $9.95 for adults and I think $6.95 for kids and includes a full course meal, soup, entrees, dessert and tea. The house in the past has thrown in the first magnum of plum wine as well. Everything will be prepared without sugar or MSG. Some of the dishes will be traditional Chinese New Year Celebration vegetarian things not found in most Chinese restaurants in this country.

Please RSVP if you can. It helps our hosts plan properly, but it’s not mandatory; it’s a restaurant and they always prepare plenty. The feast will be vegan and include brown rice. There will be many noodle dishes, lots of tofu prepared in interesting ways and some strange & wonderful vegetable dishes you may not have had before. the arrival time is any time before 7:00, but that’s for hanging, socializing, and maybe having a drink if you like. The food will likely be planned for 7:15 and will be up and available through 9 or later,so don’t worry if you can’t get there right at 7:00 it’s a buffett! Email or call with questions or for directions ( 419-668-1010 ).  Gung hay fat choy and stuff.  Peace.
