Grand Lake Chinese Banquet Meal
dre @ Hwy 7 & Kennedy: I haven't had a Chinese banquet meal in a long time, so I was looking forward to this meal to celebrate a family friend's 80th birthday. There were 10 of us at a table, but since one person was Kristen, we got to divide the food into 9 portions.
We started with a roast suckling pig with jellyfish. Always an enjoyable dish and this pork was juicy and the skin was crispy. I always feel guilty eating the skin and fat, but it's so good!
The next dish has snow peas, scallops and king mushrooms - 3 thing I love to eat! The snow peas were really crisp and the scallops were huge.
Another favourite is the crab claw. I don't particularly care for vinegar, so I normally don't add red vinegar to the crab claw.
I think there was a soup in between here, but I didn't take a picture of it.
We then had pea shoots with Chinese mushroom and dried scallops. I thought the sauce was extremely thick and tasted weird.
As usual, by the time the fish comes out, we are getting full. I didn't have any of the fish.
I couldn't resist having a couple pieces of lobster, though. I licked the garlic sauce off the shells... it was so good!
I also can't resist chicken. I had several pieces of chicken.
My favourite part of the meal is definitely the E-fu noodles and the fried rice. I liked how the fried rice was originally shaped like a pyramid before someone dug into it.
An enjoyable meal and I was very full!
