The meal is called Butter Yaki. We pull out the electric fry pans, melt a bunch of butter in them, and then load them up with bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, soy sprouts, and thinly sliced beef. And probably a couple other vegetables I'm forgetting. Each person has a bowl of sticky white rice, a small bowl of soy sauce, and chopsticks. You grab some cooked food, dip it in your soy sauce, and then let it drip over the rice and eat away. It's pretty good, and definitely a unique meal. We sit on the floor around a coffee table and celebrate the New Year. There's usually sparkling cider too, and often a broadcast of a classical symphony performance.
It's pretty fun. After the meal we played games until midnight and then went to bed.
Sorry, no pictures this time.
