We need a new idea

maj54us Jan 12, 2013 09:43 AM

We're being invited to a brunch and we usually always bring misc food like lebanese food kebe, sambousic, lahme majoun, etc.....

or the indian/pakistany mix of chicken biryanni, butter chiken, samosa, etc...

We want to try something new and are clueless as to what to bring.

Any ideas for snack size food ?

    Chinese dumplings (pan fried or steamers)

    French quiches.

    Arepas, Tamales, Empanadas

      Good idea. For tamales and empanadas, if you want to bring some with original flavors, La Diabla makes pretty good ones.

        I'd get spring rolls at Pho Bang New York and cut them into 3s. They are scrumptious and real.

      How about a few meat pies from TA?
