For the longest time our family eats in a Chinese restaurant suffering through slow service, large crowds and noisy ambiance. In recent years we started having dinner in our house where we can relax and actually hear each other.
This year I decided to have our dinner catered by Deli de San Honore after trying several of their dishes in other parties. This is Chef Jeremy the one who cooked all the wonderful food I ordered. He and my friend Debbie delivered the food personally. Their food was transported in this huge insulated cabinet and arrived piping hot. We just transferred the food to my chafing dishes.

Although there were several Thai dishes including the pomelo salad pictured above there wasn’t a theme to our dinner. I just ordered dishes I liked and I knew my family would enjoy.
I love chicken pie and have been looking for a good one and this comes very close to my ideal pie. The crust is flaky and the filling creamy and good. I just wish there were a tad less potatoes.
One of my favorites is their chicken and pork satay. Even without any sauce the meat is really flavorful and tender. I forgot to take a picture of the satay sauce and it’s the best! Just the sauce and rice you would be happy already. It’s not spicy and has a rich coconut and lemongrass flavor. It also has ground peanuts which you can taste.
I had a hard time deciding what dessert to buy. I was choosing between coffee cheesecake or Garth Vader (post to follow) then I remembered the plaisir sucre I loved from Kitchen’s Best Home Patissserie. When I went to their store I was informed that I needed to order it a day before. I then bought the purple yam cake (ube sansrival) which I also enjoyed in their dessert buffet.

I kept the ube sansrival in the freezer from the time I brought it home until the time I sliced it. It was really hard to slice because it wasn’t crisp at all. When I took a bite I almost gagged with how sweet it was. I don’t know what happened to this cake. I bought their coffee toffee sans rival before and it was really crunchy. This soggy overly sweet purple yam cake was a major disappointment.
