Season of yesteryear favourites from 10 April to 31 May 2017
includes special Mother’s Day menu on 13 and 14 May 2017
Back by popular demand of last year’s “Taste of Old Hong Kong” menu, Greater China Club’s celebrated Chinese fine dining restaurant Man Hing is taking guests down Hong Kong’s memory lane once again with its “Nostalgic Hong Kong” menu. The celebration of yesteryear favourites is served at the glamorous art deco dining room atop D2 Place One in Lai Chi Kok from 10 April to 31 May 2017 – with a special set menu for Mother’s Day on 13 and 14 May 2017
Original Cantonese classics are disappearing from mainstream restaurant menus because of the scarcity of traditional ingredients and complex culinary techniques requiring intricate skills and patient preparation. Man Hing Executive Chef Chan Wai-Teng is re-discovering “the soul of Cantonese cuisine” with a contemporary take on beloved recipes from a bygone era.
Reviving exotic ingredients like pork lung, duck feet and fish intestine, cooked in old-time style with the likes of lard and mandarin peel, the vintage menu “invites guests to explore the roots of our favourite cuisine,” said Chef Chan.]
In contemporary style, the “Nostalgic Hong Kong” menu gets a modern facelift with elegant presentation while staying faithful to tradition with once-familiar dishes like Double-boiled Pork Lung Soup with Almond (for groups of 4-6) (HK$368 for members ; HK$388 for non-members); Barbecued Chicken Liver, Pork and Lard with Honey Sauce (HK$38 for members ; HK$48 for non-members), known as “Golden Coin Chicken”; Barbecued Duck Feet, Wrapped with Barbecued Pork and Chicken Liver in Honey Sauce (HK$38 for members ; HK$48 for non-members); Deep-fried Boneless Chicken, Stuffed with Glutinous Rice and Dried Shrimps (HK$488 for members ; HK$528 for non-members); and Deep-fried Marinated Duck, Wrapped with Chinese Pancake (HK$188 for members ; HK$198 for non-members).
