SOON & SHELINE'S WEDDING DINNER.

My nephew Soon and his newlywed wife Sheline's wedding, like all other weddings was bound to has some hiccups but luckily it was kept to a minimal.

The whole family was on hands to help them out by welcoming guests, friends and relatives and ushering them to their assigned seats.

The dinner started on time and in between the 8 course dinner were romantic music, video and slide shows of the radiant and beautiful couple instead of those noisy Karaoke singing.

After the dinner, every one gave the thumbs up for the good food served.

Spring Garden Deluxe four and cold combination platter with celery, scallop, chicken/crabstick rolls, deep fried fishpaste stuffed beancurd sheet and a cold dish filled with jelly fish/vegetarian abalone was a good appetizer and it was emptied within minutes as every one was hungry.

Braised Shark's fin soup with scallops and dried seafood-was cooked to perfection-goes well with pickled green chillies and black vinegar.

Steamed Promfret-smooth and meaty with no after fishy smell served on a plateful of peanut oil/top grade soy sauce and garnished with cilantro and spring onion.

Steamed Chicken with Chinese herbs- was fragrant, tender and meaty.

Tiger prawns prepared in two varieties-visually pleasing-done in 2 styles i.e. poached and topped with mayonnaise and buttered with fragrant flaky butter/egg strands-sweet and succulent.

Braised Sea cucumber with earthy flavored Shiitake mushroom, sliced chewy Abalone Volute and served on the side with blanched Broccoli.

Hong Kong style Glutinous rice cooked with chicken ham, dried shrimp and garnished with chopped spring onion- was a bit sticky but fulfilling.

The sweet dessert of double boiled pear was filled with lots of white fungus and Lily bulbs- was nothing to shout about -the sweet fancy duets of Mua chi and pan cake complemented it well!

A toast to the newlywed! Yum Sing !!!!

Stephanie-it all depends on the type of menu selected.
thule a.k.a leo-the bridegroom has a heavier burden than the bride.

I've been there once for wedding but it was not at Spring Restaurant. The couple had a terrace wedding function. It was wonderful.

It's always nice to attend weeding dinner but not the waiting part. Seeing the young ones tying their knots is so fun especially as we grow older.

foodbin said...

Duckie-for the main table only.
vialentino-a lot of wedding dinners for me this year!
STLim-it was full of happiness and fun.

Fabulous! The food looks very upscale and very diligently prepared =). Much nicer than the majority of Chinese restaurants in my area.

The glutinous rice looks quite interesting as it is so deep brown. Haven't seen it in such of a big serving!
