Taiwan Trip Part 3- Reception banquet
As you know, Baby Bro’s girlfriend recently came back from her annual winter trip to Taiwan. You can read about part 1 and part 2 here. She’s continuing to send me photos with some notes of her trip so that I can share them with you all.
I was really excited to see these pictures from The Landis, which held the wedding reception for BBG’s older sister. I’ve been to a few reception banquets in Taiwan and the setting is always so pretty and the food so delicious.
And of course, the food:

These appear to be sticky rice balls (tang yuan)
I believe this is quail.
Shark fin soup
Shitaki mushrooms stuffed with seafood
Fish. Another must for a chinese banquet.
Rice wine soup
Fruit platter. I spy my beloved guava.
Here is the dessert all dished out.
A delicious looking slice of cake:
