    Exclamation 10 Course meal anyone? (pic heavy)

    I attended a Chinese wedding today, and traditionally, you get served up a 10 course meal, it's all meat and veg at the beginning, so you never get full until they serve up the carbs at the end.(Apologies to you vegetarians)

    Here's what it's all about.

    First dish is usually this belly pork, it's all about eating the crispy skin, the meat is secondary, but when you are hungry, you eat it all anyways, as it usually starts @3pm traditionally, and no one has breakfast or lunch on the day to make way for 10 courses! This is the first time I've seen it served with a sparkler on top, so I decided to take a pic, and ended up taking pics of every dish.



    The next 5-6 dishes is random, but usually contains a mixture of seafood, with the main event being the lobster!

    A seafood dish, not sure on it's english name sorry, but served on a bed of stirfried lettuce and garlic pieces.


    Stirfried Scallop, Kingprawns and Asparagus in a Bird's nest.


    Sharkfin and Crabmeat soup.


    Lobster with Ginger and Spring Onion


    Deep fried whole Chicken


    Shallow fried Dover Sole


    Deep fried Duck with potato pate


    Sticky rice


    'Yee' Noodles


    So that's the 10 traditional course out the way, then the desserts arrive!

    Plate of mixed fruit.


    Mango pudding and Lutus paste in lite pastry.


    Sweet watery dessert served hot to washed things down!


    Throughout the whole banquet, you are served a pretty much unlimited supply of red or white wine(brandy if you are hardcore), beer or softdrinks! lol


    And now I'm stuffed!

    It's suppose to be nice, but I've had nicer. Overall experience and quality of food, bearing in mind I'm in the catering business. 4/10

    It was ok at best, looks good, but the quality was poor, but I'm just posting pics as I took them, this is what a traditional Chinese wedding reception consists of! I managed to eat it all, as I eat almost anything, but the portions was small, and it felt cheap. Each one of those dishes needs to feed 10 heads on one table!

    Yes, pretty much, you're suppose to have like a large spoonful of each, there was 3 kids on my table though, so more for the adults!

    Sharkfin soup actually has very little sharkfin in it these days, probably less than 1%. Substituted with thick vermicelli(rice noodles) in many restaurants!

    That could may well be true, but for a banquet like the above, it's all shredded, plus it's not cheap neither, so you can see all the older generation fishing(literally) for genuine shark fin, which are quite small.
