Although it was a little late this year, We, the employees of the Evil Corporation, put on our annual Lunar New Year Lunch. Many attended. Great fun was had by all.
Some of my favorite items were:
Vegetarian Chicken (Chinese & Vietnamese) which looks like chicken, tastes like chicken, but ask no further questions.
Bánh cuốn (Vietnamese) which is a dish from northern Vietnam. It is a crêpe-like roll made from a thin, wide sheet of rice flour filled with ground pork, mushroom, and green onion.
Bánh tét (Vietnamese) which is a traditional Southern Vietnamese celebration dish made with glutinous rice, pork, and mung bean all wrapped in banana leaves. The glutinous rice turns green after cook due the banana leaves.
Red Roasted Watermelon seeds. Yum.
A new one this year was Rossogulla (India). This dish is a dessert made with sugar cubes, milk, cheese, etc. At first I thought it was lychees in simple syrup. If you have a chance to try this, you really should - at least once!
Anybody hungry? Come on down! We'll put this on again next year.
