Last night, Hui-chen and I were invited to a grill party at A-dong’s new place.  This is the time of year when the Lunar Festival is celebrated (according to the lunar calendar) in Taiwan and other places in Asia.  It’s also known as the mid-Autumn festival and people usually have a grill party outdoors.  The weather is normally very nice at this time of year in Taiwan, and last night was no exception.

A-dong’s commercial gas grill was going fast and furious, cranking out the food.

The guests were mostly Thai.  They sure know how to have a good time.

A-dong also had oysters and clams on the grill for us.

The crowd rotated somewhat, as guests left and others arrived.

This is the grill chef, who spent hours on his feet grilling the food for us.

Inside, a small party was going on too.  We had the doors open so we could hear the Thai songs outside.  Thai music is very good.

This was the most dangerous dish I have yet seen.  I sampled the smallest spec of cabbage that I could find and it was like a raging fire in my mouth!  There are more hot peppers per square centimeter in this dish, than all of the others combined!  The Thai guests ate it like it was nothing unusual.

This is our last shot of the night.  Just look at those dishes on the table.  Yes, it was one fine grill party and we thank A-dong for his hospitality!
