A good friend of mine has been living in Hong Kong for the past few years and is coming back for his first visit in a long while. I've promised to make him dinner.
Since there are some really great Italian, French, and continental European restaurants in that part of the world, and American food -- esp. South and Central American food -- is, I think, harder to find, I'd like to stick with these cuisines.
Any ideas on what to serve?
Some possibilities I'm toying with (in part b/c I've made them before):
Cider glazed Berkshire pork chops over mashed turnip and potato
Eastern N. Carolina barbecue with tomato and cucumber salad
Arepas stuffed with chicken and aji
I appreciate any and all suggestions!
