- These are the food that were served with at the Hungry Ghost Festival dinner that I attended with my family on Saturday. It’s a typical Chinese 8 -10 course dinner that can be served at any occasion, Chinese wedding dinner, celebratory dinner, etc.
Appetizers, Cold Dish, an assortment of century egg, spring rolls, bbq pork, salad prawns and baby octopus
Decoration – Flower made of tastless biscuit
Fish maw soup – Eat it with a dash of black vinegar and pepper…you can add brandy if it’s provided. This replaces the Shark’s Fin soup that used to be the must-have as a symbol of wealth. Shark’s Fin Soup is now no longer served in many Chinese restaurants because of the efforts of wildlife conservationists to save the sharks.
