Simi Shotokan's Annual International Dinner was held on March 27th, 2013. Members brought a dish representing their ethnic origins to share with their karate family. Simi Valley is a culturally diverse community and resulted in a delicious smorgasborg of home cooking from Chilaquiles to Teriyaki chicken and Cedar plank salmon! Yummers.
