Dinner party at Kirin Restaurant, Honolulu
February 1, 2008
On January 31, 2008, Galen gave a dinner party for twelve in a private room at Kirin, a Chinese restaurant despite its Japanese sounding name. There were many courses served one at a time after a presentation of the platter to everyone. We had a very good time.
Linda chats with our host.
Cellophane noodles with lotus root.
Winter melon soup.
A whole chicken wrapped in lotus leaves and then sealed with bread dough before roasting. This is a modern version of the very traditional Beggars’ Chicken which was baked in clay.
A deep-fried whole fish.
Peppered beef tenderloin with green beans and sliced onions.
Pei pa tofu with spinach..
Salted fish fried rice.
Baby bok choy and “kung pao shrimp” (shrimp with peanuts, vegetables and chilis.)
Red bean soup with a dumpling filled with a sweet sesame soup.
