Yelp South Bay's (Pre)Easter Sunday Funday!

Posted by Abby Schwarz

March came in like a lion and out like a lamb! South Bay Elites celebrated spring with a (Pre)Easter Sunday Funday Elite Event @ INDO Restaurant & Lounge in Palo Alto.

That's right chickadees! We had a good ol' fashioned Easter-themed party, complete with egg hunt, plenty of seasonal food & cocktaiils, plus a bunny photo booth. And of course, Elites came dressed in their Sunday best: Floral dresses & hats for the ladies as well as suits (along with a few pastel dress shirts and ties) from the gents. 

Located in the former Palo Alto Straits space, INDO's culinary concept is aimed at introducing some traditional Indonesian dishes along with other entrees showcasing Executive Chef Tommy's interpretation of Indonesian flavor profiles. Any visit to INDO is a unique dinning experience, setting a new standard of hospitality for casual fine dinning scenes in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our special tasting menu of the night comprised of several featured menu items, including: rice croquettes, chicken satay, chicken lumpia, tofu & quail egg, Bali-style pork belly, lamb korma, duck kapitan and coconut pudding. And, without a doubut, INDO's bartenders put the "Funday" into the equation with their famous Grey Goose Pear Mule cocktail, Cazadores reposado + grapefruit agave Palomas (served it salt-rimmed Yelp shot glasses) and bottomless champagne. All enjoyed out on INDO's gorgeous back patio in the California sunshine!

Ellen L "made like a bunny rabbit and hop...hop...hopped on over to indo for an afternoon of pre-easter delight." Her "favourite appetizer of the evening was hands down, the chicken satay with peanut sauce. In general, this is a happy hour/cocktail hour appetizer. Indo's version was just perfect, plump, tender, white meat chicken, with just the right amount of sauce, with a touch of spice." With regards to the cocktails, Desmond T said, "Unlimited champagne and delicious appetizers for 2 hours? HOLLA! The Pear Ginger Mule definitely hit the spot." Janet N "had loads of fun! Being surrounded by beautiful people, not-so-hidden easter eggs, delicious food and drink. =:3     =:3    =:3    =:3"

The Elite portion of our (Pre)Easter Sunday Funday ended after two hours, but INDO was kind enough to offer 33% off of everyone's meal who chose to stay for dinner. After just a few bites of their delicious tasting food, it was no secret that their menu was worth sticking around for: "Probably my favorite food location for any yelp event I've been to thus far, said Kyle D. "Some food highlights included the chicken satay (DELICIOUS! Crispy, juice, and tender all at the same time. Perfect entree item here), quail egg tofu (I'm quail egg biased, but damn this was good), and of course, that coconut pudding (I could probably eat it everyday, ha!)." Even if Elites had other plans for the evening, INDO sent everyone home with a 20% off card to come back and enjoy a meal in the future.
