Chu Cu was a life saver...He volunteered to grill all the meat (chicken Sate, beef tongue, and flank steak) for Hoa.


Fried calamari just arrived and the kids are rushing to get some...

I ordered a large tray of  fried calamari and I think the kids ate most it, only a few adults were able to get some!

I also served crab cakes with a mayonnaise dill and lemon zest sauce.  The crab cakes disappeared as soon as I served them.  I will definitely make them again since they were very tasty and so popular.

Lump crab meat on Endives leaves.

 Chu Cu spent a least a good 20 minutes to BBQ all the chicken sate but it is really worth the effort because they were still piping hot and so tasty!

Next... Mingling
