50 lucky Yelp Elites attended an intimate two night sit down gathering to sample Tsunami's new food menu at Yelp's Friendship Feast! Chef Wade Ueoka (formerly of Alan Wong's) wowed yelpers with five spectacular dishes served family style! Yelping is always better with friends and our Elites made new ones over bites, drinks & talk of spirit animals…
Everyone started the night off with a complimentary HI Beer cocktail and name tag, where they yelpers wrote their spirit animal. Throughout the evening guests rotated seats and everyone met a slew of new Yelp-tastic friends.
Our host Brian "Yosh" Yoshida introduced each course as it was brought out to the tables. Party goers delighted over the Beer & Nuts bao buns, a colorful farm-to-table salad, beautiful hamachi and ahi poke towers, grilled duck sandwiches and tender deep-fried tonkatsu.
Hungry, hungry yeeps demolished the night's offerings but not before snapping a few pics. Yelp Elite newbie Maka K states: "Amazing foods aside, meeting all the other great Yelp Elites was probably the best part of my night! As I'm really the only Yelp crazy person I know in my own circles, it was nice to meet people who were on the same page for once!"
SYOY & Aloha!
