Farewell Party for the Singapore Ambassador

Seven Seas recently had the pleasure of being involved in planning and catering a farewell party for the Singapore ambassador to the United States. The party was held on Thursday at the home of a former US ambassador to Nepal, where fifty distinguished guests attended.

The food we served included dim sum, sushi, five elements salad, satay and our specialty, Maryland crab fried rice. Chefs were on-site to cook dim sum, grill the satay and make sushi for the guests. In order to create a tropical, summery atmosphere, we designed a few delightful fruits and vegetable displays around the food stations. In the poolside area, floating pool decorations were added, and bright red Asian lanterns decked the perimeters of the house. The weather helped to complete our staging by being ragingly hot and humid that day! Guests were also treated to live jazz and violin performances.

Take a look at the highlights! You can also view more pictures of the party by clicking here.

The purple pudding (large size, of course) is one of Andrew's many favorite dishes at Seven Seas. The braised pork butt is also a favorite, but it was eaten before we remembered to take a picture. Too delicious:). Happy Father's Day! 父亲节快乐! Submitted byAlly Ha
Here is a picture of my daughter sharing a meal with her dad. The reasons why my daughter loves her dad are many, but the main is that he always finds the time to spend with her, whether its a meal out or teaching her how to ride a bike without training wheels. Submitted by I-Hsin Lee McConnell
This is a picture of my father (on his 61st birthday) and my niece (8 months old) at Seven Seas earlier today. We've been coming here since the very beginning in 1987, and we plan to keep on coming back, happy and hungry, for many years. Submitted by Andrew Hirsch
