Another interesting evening with the folks from the Asian Pacific Resource and Cultural Center and guests over at Chinese Pavilion in Sherwood, where diners enjoyed the Asian New Year Celebration Dinner Saturday. The annual event features a master chef's interpretation of traditional Asian dishes. Above, pictured, are slices of Korean beef and pork barbeque, seaweed, sweet and salted cashews, and Thousand Year Eggs. Nearly eighty people came out to savor nine courses -- including "Heaven and Earth," a dish of soft-boiled quail eggs and pork over fried noodles; savory fried beef and stewed sweet-tart lychee in an orange sauce; bok choy and mushrooms in oyster sauce; and of course the traditional whole fried fish (for good luck), this year being the ever lucky and delicious red snapper.
More food opportunities coming up in April with the Asian Pacific Resource and Cultural Center with the annual festival... for now, food porn on the jump.
