50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

It was my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary last weekend so we got together for a Chinese feast at Honey & Garlic in Markham. It was a traditional Chinese banquet style dinner with ten courses. We have a very big family...including children there were 15 people.

Nibbles before dinner...

Roasted pork

Crab claws

Baby spinach with dried scallops

Fake shark fin soup (used chicken instead)

Crispy skin chicken with shrimp chips

Dungenous Crab and lobster

Steamed fresh fish with soya sauce

Fried E-Fu Noodles

Shrimp fried rice

Birthday buns (steamed with lotus paste inside)

We had a choice of two different dessert soups.

We chose Black Sesame Soup

and warm tofu with sweet ginger sauce.

In addition to the ten course meal we ordered two vegetarian dishes for my sister-in-law.
Fried tofu with dried mushroom and vegetables

Three different mushrooms with veggies.

Needless to say we were stuffed by the end...especially after two bowls of the black sesame soup. YUM!!!

  7. Yum Yum - that crispy pork skin is making me drool. But my fave is the steamed fish with the soya sauce! And I've never had the tofu with ginger sauce as a dessert option - normally it's the red bean soup. Thanks for sharing your wonderful meal with us!
