Last weekend we attended our first wedding as vegans and it took me awhile to realize other than RSVP-ing our attendance we have to request for our special diet too. Luyan the bride, was my fashion design classmate and was my assistant class representative. I was so lucky to spend two awesome weeks with her family in Shanghai and up till today I still have fond memories of her beloved dog Lulu and the crazy fun we had!
Her wedding was held at Ramada Hotel at Zhong San Park, a really new hotel that just opened a few days ago and they were the second couple holding a wedding there. We have a few wedding lined up this year and we will not be commenting on the food as respect to the couple for going that extra mile to accommodate to our requests in the midst of their crazy planning schedules! (We have been through this and know how stressful it can be!)
It was a six course chinese vegetarian dinner and here are the dishes we had.
Ramada’s Vegetarian Combination
Braised Mock Shark’s Fin Soup with Bamboo Fungus
Stir Fried Mock Chicken with Dried Chilli and Cashew Nuts
Braised Beancurd with Assorted Mushrooms
Baked Vegetarian Rice in Lotus Leaf
Yam Paste with Ginko Nuts
We had a lot of fun playing with the props and we are so happy for Luyan and Ee Chiang and wish them everlasting love and smiles in this new journey together!
