Oshaberikai_Sushi_banner

A reminder that our bounenkai is this Wednesday, 3 December, at IORI restaurant in Civic.

JETAA will be subsidising the meals, so the cost to you for food will be only $20.
 

It’s time to celebrate (and forget) the end of the year again!  Hopefully it has been a good year for everyone and this is a chance for us to get together for some great food, drink and company at IORI restaurant.

To clarify the food situation: We will be ordering from the banquet menu.  There are three different banquets on offer, however a banquet needs 4 people to participate.  To that end we are asking people to rank their preference of banquets from 1st to 3rd so we can make sure that we can get enough numbers for a particular banquet.

Ninja Banquet (min. 4 people)
Edamame, seaweed salad, agedashi tofu, sushi and sashimi with special rolls, miso soup, rice, crab, prawn and vegetable tempura, teriyaki chicken, garlic steak – wagyu premium beef

Hime Banquet (min. 4 people)
