Wedding Lunch

Recently I went for a wedding lunch and here are some of the food served. I did not get the photos of all the food. The above is the first dish served.

Steamed Patin Fish. The fish was served this way with the flesh removed and put beside the fish. Can you spot the fish meat besides the bone?

I only ate this little bit of the fish.

Very tasty fried rice but as usual, people are almost full when the fried rice was served. The soy sauce prawns with shells have been reassigned to a smaller plate. The other dish is fish maw, abalone mushrooms and broccoli.

I like the last course best - desserts! Crispy pancakes with lotus fillings and glutinous rice flour shaped like pears with lotus fillings too.

Sweet soup dessert made with Chinese Almonds (Apricot Seeds) boiled with apples.

This is the full list of dishes served.

  1. Lunch? That's very Foochow-ish...here, they always had it lunchtime in the old days. Relatives from near and far could come and transport was not as easy as today, way back then. 12 courses! To make sure everyone would go home very full and satisfied.

    Is this Concorde in the city or Shah Alam? The one where I loved to stay at Sepang is closed - there was a fire - dunno if they have reopened.

  2. Looked good. I love the look of the cold dish (1st dish). The starter.

    You mean they brought the fish out like that?? Not serve and cut the fish on the table for guests to see?

    Like stp said, very Foochow. Haha. I only attended wedding lunch reception few times in Sibu. Not so common in Kuching. Mostly in the evening.

  3. Yummy food. I always enjoyed the wedding dishes with a good company of friends at the same table. It is true that we were often full when the fried rice appeared on the table. That's how I developed the habit to bring plastics to scoop back all the left overs from all tables to feed beggars at midnight. LOL


    I think the trend is coming back that wedding banquets are hosted during lunch hour. It was like this during the 50s, 60s and 70s until dinners became a convenience instead.

  4. I actually prefer wedding lunch rather than dinner. So far, all those I attended are dinners. My favorite is always the first dish and the last and then dessert :)

  6. I have attended more wedding dinners than lunches. Usually lunches have less courses. Usually the 1st dish will finish fast because everyone would be hungry. I like the pancake and sweet soup dessert.
