Chinese Wedding Banquet

Posted by mamabok | Chinese,Entertainment,Food From Home,Useful Links,Useful Tips | Friday 2 January 2009 5:46 pm




One of the things i missed most about home is getting wedding invites and attending the a chinese wedding banquet.   For those who are not aware of this.. the chinese wedding banquet is unlike the western wedding.. where you have a 3 course dinner.  The Chinese Wedding banquet consist of at least 9 course.. and sometimes .. 10… and every single dish has a meaning to it.. and very rich and expensive.  Depending on where you have the Chinese banquet, a table of 10 can cost up to $800 easily.  Whenever, I get an invitation, I try my best to go .. especially if i know the couple really well.  And the main reason why i loved Chinese banquet .. is because you can get to eat a lot of different dishes.. withouth worrying about ordering too much.  It’s fun to gather with friends.. and family .. because these weddings.. comes in table of 50 or even more.  What about you ..?? do you like chinese wedddings..??

    I simply love to go to Chinese weddings no matter if it’s held at hotels or chinese restaurants like Overseas (Hoi Ngoi Thin) or Tai Thong or 6 Happiness (Look Fook). The food is always nice, especially the 1st dish (4 seasons but comes in 5 varieties sometimes). Yes, I love wedding dinners. :)But of course, have to give angpau larrr…
