We are trying something different this year. Dim sum lunch.
Our menu features a variety of traditional dishes, often with haggis fusion cuisine. We strive for a nice balance of vegetarian and meat dishes that many people can enjoy. A Vegetarian soup and traditional Buddha’s Feast dish + seafood and meat dish. This year we celebrate the Year of the pig.
Two of our featured guests include: Scottish-Canadian Author John Maclachlan Gray, author of The White Angel – a mystery novel that is based on a true life unsolved murder of Scottish Nanny Janet Smith, and the accusation and acquittal of her friend, Chinese houseboy Wong Foon Sien.
Chinese born musician Zhongxi (Jonesey) Wu plays both bagpipes and traditional Chinese instruments. He has performed at Gung Haggis Fat Choy events many years ago, for both our dinner and an event for First Night Vancouver. He has even played Mull of Kintyre on stage with Paul McCartney.
House band is Black Bear Rebels Ceilidh Ensemble. My dear musical friends that I play celtic,
Scottish and Cdn songs with 2X months usually. They have taught me much about Celtic songs,
musicianship, and drinking scotch whisky.
More introductions to come.
