How better to celebrate Chinese New Year than with chomping down delicious Chinese cuisine with friends in a warm and toasty place :)
Here are pictures below from the HBS AABA Chinese New Year Dinner at Hei La Moon from January 2012...
And the fooding begins!!!
"Birds Nest Seafood"--this dish always confuses me since it's not actual "Bird's Nest" as many restaurants name it, so I'm always sad when I think of how delicious (and rare/hard to find it is in the U.S.!!) real Bird's Nest is!!!
I never love the crunchy fried noodle part either, it somehow always ends up tasting too oily or old and not so crunchy/tasty...
Chinese Fried Chicken--with the chips! I remember as a kid I always tried to sneak in as many chips as possible and once, my family looked over and I had basically collected all the different colored chips on my plate, empty soup bowl, and I just looked up at them innocently like "hallo?! is this okay?!"
Chinese Fried Rice--I sadly cannot ever comment much on this as I'm usually stuffed and curled up in a ball by the time fried rice or noodles (usually the last savory Chinese dishes to come at the end of a banquet style dinner) from having eaten too much haha
(Kept me nice and toasty thru out the Boston and East Coast Winters!!)
And when we got home, this is what we found!!!
Bow Wow having his own lil' celebration of sorts, going at it on the Bully Sticks (yes, erm, they are cow thingies...) but he LOVES them and they're supposed to be a really healthy and long lasting treat for doggies!!!
