The first Special Interest Group dinner at Sarban was a delicious treat for a small, but intimate group. TIC members settled in with a drink to decide how to pick from the variety of dishes on the menu. Since most had been to Sarban before and had enjoyed all of the well prepared food, the group decided to go for the “Chef’s surprise” that could be shared by all. The wait staff personalized the experience by explaining all of the ingredients and preparation of the 3-course meal. Different appetizers were brought to the table including battered baby corn, sliced pumpkin with kwark and tomato sauce and a special dish especially served for the vegetarian in the group. Over a lively conversation, everyone dug into the entrees consisted of a variety of marinated meats, an assortment of rice pilaus and spiced veggies. Luckily most had enought room left over for the homemade ice cream of ginger and fig with rose petals. Everyone gave this very memorable meal a thumbs up and will most likely be back for more in the near future!
