Ava and Allen Wedding
Nelson @ Ava & Allen's Wedding at Le Jardin: They elected to go with a chinese banquet meal (by Jacky Young) at a banquet hall, which is the most expensive option.
They started off with the mixed platter. I like this better than just the suckling pig, but apparantly just the suckling pig is more expensive and considering more luxurious. Personally I like tasting the different meats.
I didn't catch the scallop & squid dish before it was distributed by the wait staff. As you can tell it was popular.
The shark fin soup was served in a metal bowl...don't know if that was intentional. I don't think it affected the taste though. Apparently they say the when shark fin is served from a bowl, you can get uneven distribution of shark fin, as most of it sinks to the bottom. Something to remember!
Next is a veggie dish with mushrooms, then the steamed fish dish. The lobster was pretty good and different from most I've had. I think it was baked, as it was fairly dry, but dry in a good way. It was tasty and I liked the lobster dish.
Finishing off the main course is the crispy chicken (apparantly it's bad luck to have a steamed chicken) and the noodles and fried rice.
To finish off, a tiramisu cake was served. I don't remember if this was the wedding cake or not... The crab claws came out with sparklers. Mine was a bit cold, but I still enjoyed it.
