Kate is my frequent Yelp restaurant companion. She and I went to Mediterranean Oasis in Naperville, which required a bit of a sense of adventure since it's a deli counter inside a grocery store in a tucked-away and forgotten strip mall. This Yelp Elite party was a similar adventure. Yet again, if it wasn't for Yelp, we would never have gone to this place.
It looks like a dive from the outside, but inside, it's a strangely delightful blend of Chinese and Hawaiian decor.
The service: attentive and amazing.
The drinks: dangerously delicious, belying the alcohol within.
The food: not the most memorable, but still quite tasty.
The details: We were served two drinks of our choice, and I went with the Dr. Fong and the Coco Loco. The first was quite strong, the second was creamy and dessert like.
The restaurant owner served us these two-bite vegetarian egg rolls and crab rangoon. Everything was served family style. We had Mongolian beef, fried rice and sweet and sour chicken, which was prepared with chicken breast and a homemade sauce.
The meal ended with ginger cookies and fortune cookies, and a great rockabilly band.
The swag, as usual, was quite impressive.
Thanks, Yelp Elite and Kate, for a great evening!
