Tim & Julie's Wedding at Shangri-la
Nelson @ Shangri-la: Kitty and I had considered Shangri-la - a Markham banquet hall with Chinese food - since they took care of a lot of details for you. Kitty told me that when the couple went in for the tasting they weren't that impressed with the food, but when I ate it, I thought it was pretty good.
Roast Suckling Pig Slice & Jelly Fish: this was just the skin and very little meat. Felt so fattening!
Deep Fried Stuffed Crab Claw: Good as usual, came out nice and hot.
Sauteed Fresh Prawn & Scallop with Pine Nut & Seasonal Vegetables: We had one less person at our table and I remember eating lot's of snow peas.
Superior Shark Fin Soup: The shark fin had this huge thing in it....I think it was shark fin! Apparantly it's fresh shark fin instead of the more expensive dried stuff. I felt bad eating this.
Braised Sliced Abalone with Seasonal Vegetables: I actually didn't get a photograph of this, because I was walking around when this came to the table, but I did see the vegetarian version of this dish and snapped a picture. I'm not sure what it is (mushroom?), but it looked interesting.
Roasted Crisp Chicken: Deep Fried!
Steamed Seasonal Whole Fish with Soya Sauce: Fish were a little small, but tasted pretty good.
Baked Lobsters with Ginger & Scallion: I was worried how this dish would turn out because usually lobster is stir fried and for our wedding we also have baked lobster. The meat was drier, but not in a bad way and was firm. Just a flavourful as well, so baked lobster is just as good as lobster stir fried.
Sahngri-La Fried Rice & Braised E-Fu Noodles with Conpoy & Abalone Slices & Enoki Mushrooms: I didn't see any abalone slices, so maybe they got ripped off here. Both tasted pretty good, but I was pretty full at this point having eaten a lot of the "tenth" person's food.
Sweetened Red Bean Soup with Lotus Seed & Fancy Chinese Petit Fours: Nothing out of the oridinary here.
A finally, the wedding cake adorned with fresh flowers and bling.
Tim is not a very picky eater and even he said the food wasn't that good during the tasting, so I was expecting not so good food, but in my opinion I thought it was pretty good!
