Lunar New Year Dinner Party 2009 (4707 on the Chinese Calendar)

Happy Year of the Ox!  My Lunar New Year’s resolution is to not spend this year’s party in the kitchen.

Here’s a link to last year’s menu and my tentative menu for this year is below.  I’ve been too busy to revamp the entire thing, so I am bringing back some favorites with new additions, including a couple of oxtail dishes.

Tet-Nis Shot

Amuse Bouche:
Oxtail pâté on crispy wontons

BBQ Pork Buns (test batch with oxtail not great)
Crab Mangoon
OMG Ribs
Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Noodle Bar:

Rice and egg noodles
Peanut Sauce
Asian Pesto
Coconut Curry
Beef Pho broth with oxtail
Grilled meat and tofu skewers
Veggies and aromatics

Haupia with pineapple juice pearls
Yuzu Fro-Yo (?)

Orange slice jello shots

Note: I realize that oxtail is really just cow tail, but whatever.
