To celebrate the full moon, Yelp Vancouver threw a party at Pink Elephant Thai! Rick Chung invited me to attend. I’ve never been to Pink Elephant Thai, let alone a Yelp party. There’s a first time for everything.

I love Yelp’s branding efforts, scattered all around tables and booths are tins of Yelp mints and chapsticks. You can’t exactly tell, but the mints line up on the table to read “Yelp.” I will confess that my purse is spilling full of Yelp branded chapsticks right now.

The cocktail that I tried was aptly named the ‘Full Moon Cocktail,’ a tasty, fruity concoction of vodka, banana liquor, apricots and pineapple juice. A fun, girly drink- I’d call it a good school night drink.

The food that was passed around throughout the night was delectable. Well, maybe except for the tofu, only because I don’t believe in soggy, finger food. It’s definitely too awkward to eat at a party with toothpicks and napkins!

The crispy, mini spring rolls were addictive. Piping hot and filled with seasoned veggies.

The bite-sized fried fish cake patties were also scrumptious.

My fave of the night were the deep fried prawn dumplings. Super crispy on the outside with crunchy tips and jam-packed with tender prawns on the inside.

My least favourite appetizers had to be the egg plant and tofu. Only due to texture. I’m clumsy as it is, so to eat soggy and limp food is a true challenge for me! I did enjoy the spicy taste of the eggplant though!

Near the end of the night, a traditional Thai dancer descended the stairs in style and grace. You can imagine the amount of cameras and camera phones that went off at this point. It was a beautiful dance, and a great way to tie together the Thai themed evening.

I had a great time at my first Yelp Party. Can’t wait till the next party!
