It’s 10 degrees, here in New York City. But that doesn’t stop Hubby and me from having our Post-Lunar New Year party tonight! With 3 couple friends over, so a party of 8, I like to prepare simple, delicious dishes that everyone can enjoy and are stress-free.
On cold days like this and to please a hungry crowd, I love to make Roy Choi’s Chicken Katsu. It has become my signature dish as I often receive requests (and even demands) from family and friends to make this. For my party of 8, I doubled the amount of each ingredient and planned additional time to prepare and cook from the recipe. The preparation and cooking are easy, and yet the result is so delicious and impressive.
Happy Lunar New Year!
After a long day filled with hosting and coordinating New Year activities for our families and communities, my Chinese and Vietnamese friends and I were finally able to sit down, eat and enjoy the first day of a prosperous year ahead of us!
We went to one of our favorite spots in Chinatown in NYC, Old Shanghai Deluxe. We ordered several dishes that we loved from the restaurant and must have for this holiday.
A Lunar New Year dinner must always have dumplings, and we were craving for the restaurant’s Soup Dumplings.
French BFF and I reserve our weekend mornings for running and brunch. After an exhilarating long run, we brought our hubbies to brunch with us at Petite Abeille, a Belgian restaurant in Union Square in New York City.
Our hubbies ordered their own dishes. French BFF and I selected two dishes to share.
Our first dish was the Chicken & Waffle.
