Hehe.... If we were rich we sure could have a nice party with the Geoexpat crowd
I thought a wedding dinner included a set of dishes only available as a complete set, and used for dinners, but from what you say we could perhaps just order a few of those things, considering there's only two of us and we don't want to pay $ 15 000
Shark's fin soup is surely something special you can't get anywhere else in the west. It's quite expensive, isn't it? How much would two bowls cost? Many hundreds of HK$ each?
I found a website with Chinese wedding traditions, and it explains that there are 8 dishes, many of them sound delicious (especially since I've had them before): Peking duck (yummy!!!), chicken, read bean soup, sweet buns.
It would be a lot of fun an give us a memory for life if we could have a great meal like this on our wedding.
But where should we go, should we reserve in advance, and how can we order when we don't speak Cantonese?
Unfortunately I don't know anyone in HK any longer, so we're on our own (well, not quite -we have all of you here at Geoexpat)
