Have heard about this communal dinner for some time. Happens a few times a year, and is advertised through Brown Paper tickets. Finally, my schedule worked out to make it for the feast.
The table was set with banana leaves as its base, and votive candles spread throughout. From there, the food is all placed in a beautiful display. No plates. No silverware. You're to eat with your hands; picking up with one hand and eating with the other. It did get confusing at times which hand did which, but only added more fun to the event. After a few drinks, you don't care.
All of the food was flavorful and had its own personality. The chicken and waffles were especially popular at our end of the table. As were the homemade chicken sausage and the cold noodles. The rice was some of the best tasting rice I've ever had. Learned it had RANCH dressing added to it, which is probably why everyone loved it. She let us know that the watermelon had been soaked in sugar water, which was brilliant and added so much juice and flavor.
Milou provided guidance on all of the above and even gave us recipe information. MILOU is really why you're there, as much as the food. You can see/hear the passion she has for what she does. She proudly wears a fun apron, celebrating her name "Skip to Milou"!
It's not a cheap ticket, but worth the experience and the opportunity to share in a unique dining event. My only complaint was that the dinner was to start at 7 and it was nearly 8 before we were seated.
