Wedding Lunch @ Mandarin Oriental Singapore

Yesterday, we were invited to our friend, G's wedding lunch reception at Mandarin Oriental Singapore. G looked absolutely stunning in her wedding gowns.

G must be on of the most organised person around. We got sms to remind us before the wedding two times over two weeks. We also got a thank you sms today too!

So, what was on the menu?

The lunch started off with the Mandarin Oriental Combination - Lobster and Prawn with Seafood Roll. Looks good?

The braised shark's fin with crabmeat.
Good thing that not many sharks were killed. :-)

The Cod Fish Fillets. Baked fillets of cod in superior teriyaki sauce
We all like the cod. So soft and it melts in your mouth.

When we saw on the menu: Chilli Crab Mantous, we all asked each other, is it going to be the chilli crab that we know? Haha...

Well, it is! This is the chilli crab sauce! Is there crab meat inside? Yes!

Wow, it must be costly for one wedding table. Nowadays it dont come cheap giving angpows to wedding couple. My hubby's nephew just married and it cost us about $1000 (angpow and gold gift). The food looked so delicious and yummy. Must share this post with my friends.
