A short while back, I made a brief remark on this board saying that, in light of the huge success of the previous two chowmeets at Maple Yip and O 'Mei, I will be contemplating a similar follow-up dinner gathering, when the annual BC wild Spot Prawns season arrives. With the season already started and currently in full swing, I am issuing this '2nd' Chowmeet Clarion Call! ( First one on 28th May already 95% filled )

WHERE: 'The Emperor Fine Chinese Cuisine', 9019 Bayview Avenue, Richmond Hill.

TIME & DATE: 7.00 pm,Thursday 6th June, 2013.

CHOW-THEME: 10 course Pre-arranged Chinese Tasting Menu with Live Wild BC Spot Prawns as the Star and other off-menu items.


) Peking Duck 2 ways ( one of the best rendition in town )
- Chinese Crepe wrapped Crispy Skin & Meat with Hoisin Sauce and Condiments.
- Lettuce Wrap with Sauteed Minced Duck Meat and Crunchy Vegetables.

) Wild BC Spot Prawns 2 ways
- Crispy & Aromatic Wok Fried Heads-on Butterfly Prawns with Garlic Spicy Salt Gratinee

Cost: Approx.,$50 per person, all inclusive of Food, Tax and Gratuities ( to be confirmed a week before ).

A 'pay-as-you-go' cash bar for beverages will be offered. Also, I have negotiated a $5 per bottle BYOB corkage fee for those who would like to bring along a bottle of their cellar treasure! ( The restaurant is the only Chinese Restaurant in town that uses 'Riedel' Stem ware! )

As per previous chowmeets, please do not answer to this posting!

{ As before, I anticipate responses will be very positive, so space availability will be by 'first come first serve' basis. }
