Pu Pu Platter

Pu Pu Platter

Think of the Pu Pu Platter as a sampler plate of Asian, Hawaiian and Polynesian appetizers. Here there should be something that pleases everyone: Beef, Chicken, Ribs, Seafood, Vegetables, etc.  Naturally the items will vary from restaurant to restaurant, but the flaming hibachi in the middle of the lazy Susan serving tray is always a hit, whether in a restaurant or at a cocktail party.  Certainly a lot of this food is Americanized, and in Polynesian restaurants it is based on Cantonese Chinese dishes, but the components are interchangeable. Typically there are 6 different appetizers to accommodate each section in the tray.

Here are some of the most common items:

  • Beef Skewers
  • Chicken Wings
  • Crab Rangoon
  • Egg Rolls
  • Fried Shrimp
  • Ribs
  • Shrimp Toast
