Menu from last night's banquet

We had another banquet last night, this time thrown by our school for all of the foreign teachers. It was a chance to meet the administration and celebrate the start of the school year with toasts, speeches, and a huge amount of food. The beverage choices included "Great Wall" wine and "Dark Beer."
We were each given a list of all of the food items - each was brought to our table and served family style. Thought you might like to check it out:

Mango Salad, Crystal Pork, Chilled Golden Mushroom, Roasted Dried Bean Curd, Kaifaw Lotus Root, Sichuan Chili Chicken, Sesame Jelly Fish, Roasted Goose, Lamb Chop Teppanyaki, Deep Fried Mandarin Fish, Fried Crystal Shrimp with Vegetable, Garlic Oyster Teppanyaki, Stewed Diced Beef with Red Wine Sauce in Pot, Steamed Sliced Pork and Fungus with Chicken Broth, Fried Eggplant with Taiwan Pasting in Sizzling, Stewed Bean Curd with Mashed Crab, Mushroom Soup, Fried Vegetables, Steamed Mashen Crab Dumpling, Twin Cake,  and Fruit Plate.


No risk of going hungry this year!


  1. Wow ...I think the jelly fish sounded especially tasty!

  2. It looks like a pretty normal menu until you get to the FUNGUS WITH CHICKEN BROTH! The drink choices are great, wine & dark beer, my favorites:) Great Wall wine - red or white?
    Your intestines are in my prayers:)
