Introducing A New Menu of Timeless American Steakhouse Classics

Housed at the Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel, Lai Sun Dining’s American steakhouse Prohibition Grill House & Cocktail Bar welcomes seasoned chef Ivan Chan joining the team as the Chef de Cuisine this autumn. With over 26 years of experience and vast knowledge on meats, grill and beyond, Chef Ivan curated a new a-la-carte menu featuring timeless American steakhouse classics that excites all steak lovers in town.

Chef Ivan has a unique insight on steak selection, being the very first chef who introduced Korean beef and other lesser-known Japanese beef like Tottori Ken in the menu. At Prohibition Grill House & Cocktail Bar, guests can expect a menu of great beef including USDA Prime Black Angus, US Wagyu “Gold Medal” wagyu, Australian wagyu and Korean 1++ beef, together with sustainable seafood chosen according to the recommendation from WWF-HK’s seafood guide, refreshing American salads, comforting sandwiches, sides and desserts.

Steak highlights include USDA Prime Black Angus New York Strip (12oz, HK$598), a tender and juicy cut of the corn-fed American beef; and Korean 1++ Striploin (10oz, HK$1,088), the top-grade Korean beef with beautiful marbling, both grilled to perfection with just right seasoning. Chef Ivan brings the excitement further up with his iconic off-menu special Dry-aged USDA Prime Bone-in Ribeye, Peter Luger style (52oz, HK$1,980, for 4-6 persons, pre-order required at least 2 days in advance), a mouth-watering sharing dish inspired by the legendary steakhouse in New York. The properly dry-aged USDA Prime steak is first grilled and sliced thick, then moved to a burning hot plate for the next crucial step, where Chef pours hot melted clarified butter onto the meat. The sizzling sound of butter dancing on the plate announces the perfect marriage of buttery jus and steak, accompanied by heavenly aroma filled the whole room – a dish that all true steak enthusiasts would fall in love with.

Chef Ivan’s refined touch and precise execution are reflected in other new dishes as well. Ahi Tuna Tartare (HK$198) is lightly seasoned with yuzu dressing to bring out the natural umami of the fish; “New Orleans” Jumbo Crab Cake (HK$238) is a modern take of the American classics; Prohibition Chopped Salad (HK$178), a refreshing mix of organic green, wax apple, tomato and homemade vinaigrette, is the salad for your healthy kick; Philly Cheesesteak (HK$238), an American popular sandwich created with chopped beefsteak and Cheez Whiz, is presented chicly with beer potato chips; Grilled Marine Sampler (HK$880 for two persons), the seafood platter to go beyond beef, filled with Boston lobster, jumbo king prawn, Hokkaido scallop and chef Ivan’s signature “New Orleans” jumbo crab cake. Not to mention the equally delightful side dishes including Lobster Mac & Cheese (HK$118), Creamy Corn ($88) and Creamy Spinach ($88), to name a few.

Enjoy all the food at the opulent yet cozy dining area with red velvet coaches, brick walls and leather details, mimicking the olden days’ American drinking den in a modern way. The window-side tables next to the hotel’s garden pool set the perfect ambience for any occasions from date night to family gathering. Pair up the dishes with Prohibition’s extensive wine list, curated Whisky list or the bar’s modern twist on classic concoctions.

With Chef Ivan’s new creations, buzzy vibe and warm hospitality, good time ensured at Prohibition Grill House & Cocktail Bar.

ELEVATED HAIRY CRAB DISHES LAUNCH AT THE LEGACY HOUSE

Eight exquisite Taihu Lake hairy crab dishes by Executive Chef Li Chi Wai and his team of talented chefs will launch at The Legacy House today, in celebration of the autumn season.

Known as the “King of Crab,” the coveted crustacean will feature in a range of superior Cantonese dishes ranging from the Classic Steamed Hairy Crab with shiso and ginger (whole, market price) to Steamed Shanghainese Pork Dumplings with Hairy Crab Cream (HKD120 for two pieces). In this elevated take on a traditional xiao long bao soup dumpling, hairy crab roe is partnered with umami-rich Iberico pork — a decadent reimagining of a timeless comfort food.

Braised Tofu with Scallops and Hairy Crab Cream (HKD280) is a textural delight. The velvety dish is smooth, creamy and packed with flavour whilst Yin-nourishing Fish Maw with Shrimp Paste and Hairy Crab Cream (HKD480)  and Braised Inaniwa Udon (HKD240 per person) with Hairy Crab Cream demonstrate Chef Li Chi Wai’s exceptional talent and attention to detail. By utilising painstaking cooking techniques, the luxurious quality of the crab coral is enhanced, making The Legacy House’s limited-edition hairy crab menu an unmatched tribute to the widely sought-after delicacy.

Guests will enjoy pairing any of the esteemed chef’s seasonal hairy crab dishes with a bottle of Vin Jaune D’Arly (HKD1,550). The unique yellow wine is renowned for its complex aromas and fresh, delicate style. Made exclusively from vines planted in 1953 and 1974, this exceptional wine is a wonderful partner for the rich flavour and texture of hairy crab roe.

Another recommended pairing option from The Legacy House’s wine programme of over 1,000 pours, is Guyue Longshan, Long Wen 15 year-aged Shaoxing pure-grain yellow glutinous rice wine (HKD1,180). Made with Jianhu Lake water, this desirable Chinese rice wine is bracingly dry with rich minerality and attractive notes of flint and wet stones, which stand up perfectly to the rich fattiness of hairy crab coral.

The seasonal hairy crab dishes are available from today until end November.

OVOLO LAUNCHES ‘YEAR OF THE VEG’ 

Ovolo Becomes First Hotel Group to Go Completely Vegetarian Across all Restaurants, Bars and Room Service

Ovolo Hotels is launching the ‘Year of the Veg’ – becoming the first hotel group to go completely vegetarian across all its restaurants, bars, and food services for an entire year.  Inspired to act on climate change and environmental conservation, the designer hotel collection is phasing out meat to focus on creating compelling plant-based cuisine instead.

With more consumers choosing to reap the benefits of plant-based and vegetarian cuisine, Ovolo decided the time was ripe to leave animal products behind; World Vegetarian Day on October 1 proved the perfect moment to launch “Year of the Veg”.

The shift in direction embodies Ovolo’s philosophy of connecting with its customers’ demands. Now, guests and diners will be able to nourish their bodies with meat-free meals, which are packed with fresh, locally-sourced produce and embrace the ideals of ethical eating.

For Ovolo in Hong Kong, the movement towards vegetarianism began at Veda at Ovolo Central. When it opened, Veda was Hong Kong’s first vegetarian hotel restaurant and its delicious, innovative cuisine quickly won fans and accolades, heralding the city’s movement towards healthier, more conscious consumption through plant-based cuisine.

Having laid the groundwork with Veda, Ovolo Hotels is seizing the opportunity to cater to Hong Kong’s sustainably-minded gastronomes by turning 100% vegetarian. Komune, the lively all-day dining destination at Ovolo Southside is cutting meat from its menus, and the hotel will soon debut an exciting new restaurant concept that will be fully vegetarian, too.

The movement will extend to Australia, with Ovolo’s Australian locations also going plant-based for the year.  Monster Kitchen & Bar (Ovolo Nishi, Canberra), ZA ZA TA (Ovolo The Valley, Brisbane), and Mr Percy (Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour, Sydney) are also debuting exciting new all-vegetarian menus to celebrate “Year of the Veg”. They’ll join Alibi Bar & Kitchen, at Ovolo Woolloomooloo, which set the standard as the first 100% plant-based hotel restaurant in Australia and New Zealand.

To further the plant-based cause, Ovolo is also revamping its room service menus. For “Year of the Veg”, guests will be able to enjoy an array of tantalising vegetarian dishes in the comfort of their design-forward Ovolo guest room.

Commenting on this bold new direction, Ovolo Group’s Founder and CEO, Girish Jhunjhnuwala, says, “Dining out – enjoying quality food and wine with good company – is one of life’s greatest pleasures. We want to be conscious about what we’re consuming and practice sustainability as much as we can because we believe this can have an enormous impact on the environment and humanity at large. To that end, we’re evolving our food offerings so that our guests can continue enjoying great dining experiences in a more sustainable manner.”

Committed to finding ways to reduce their environmental footprint, “Year of the Veg” is just the latest in a series of eco-friendly initiatives that Ovolo Hotels has implemented over the last year. This includes eliminating single-use bathroom amenities made of plastic, replacing plastic straws with environmentally-friendly alternatives, and using reusable woven bags for slippers. After going vegetarian across all their restaurants, Ovolo will continue to incorporate sustainable and ethical practises throughout their properties as much as possible.

All Ovolo Hotel venues will offer vegetarian menus from Thursday, 1 October, also known as World Vegetarian Day.

Southeast Asian Cuisine Monsoon Arrives in Hong Kong

Dedicated to the authentic flavours of Southeast Asia, Monsoon showcases the culinary innovation of Will Meyrick, executed by his trusted Indonesian Head Chef Gede Budiana.

In Southeast Asia, the monsoon season brings fond nostalgia and memories of watching the rain while slurping soup noodles or digging into a hearty comfort meal at a street-side hawker stall. It is an excuse to take a mid-day break while we wait for the rain to stop, rain that also brings bountiful harvests, flowing rivers and a sense of optimism. The monsoon crosses cultural and national borders; it binds the people of Southeast Asia together and brings life and vitality to the entire region.

Inspired by Authenticity

Located at ELEMENTS and dedicated to a modern expression of Southeast Asia’s best street-food dishes, the newly-opened Monsoon showcases the very best flavours, textures and traditions of this vibrant region with a menu laced with the culinary musings of award-winning Chef Will Meyrick.

Chef Will Meyrick is well-known for his devotion and creative take on Asian cuisine. His stellar career path has led him from London to Sydney and extensively through Southeast Asia, where he fell in love with the exotic spices, flavours and textures that make the indigenous cuisines of the region so intriguing. He’s now the driving force behind some of Bali’s most coveted restaurants, including flagship fine-dining restaurant Sarong; Mama San, a chic and popular eatery; Hujan Locale which offers regional Indonesian cuisine with a contemporary twist; and Billy Ho, a popular Izakaya-concept. Chef Meyrick’s passion for the culinary culture and rich heritage of Southeast Asia is what really drives his creativity and sets him apart as a chef and restaurateur.

Where Tradition Meets Modernity

Catering to 100 guests, Monsoon combines inventive and inspiring takes on classic Southeast Asian fare, which is served in exotic and vibrant interiors reminiscent of the colonial architecture still lovingly preserved across the region. Dressed in forest green and honey-hued wood, Monsoon is bathed in golden light from banks of suspended pendant lamps, accentuated with decorative rattan umbrellas set across the ceiling.

Comfortable banquette seating with rattan detailing is matched with forest green and vibrant floral textiles, with elegant vintage-esque floor tiles, captivating floral wall tiles and timber panels gracing the walls. The main dining room is complemented by a private dining room, which caters to eight diners, and an elegant bar area accentuated by touches of bronze and brass, where guests can sample from the restaurant’s tropical-led cocktail menu and extensive wine list.

The Flavours & Textures of the Monsoon Belt

These vibrant interiors serve as the perfect canvas on which the culinary team presents its modern take on traditional Southeast Asian fare. Examples of Meyrick’s authentic yet bold approach to Southeast Asian street food dishes at Monsoon include Cambodian steamed Salmon Amok, a blend of salmon, Thai basil, lemongrass, red curry, betel leaf, and silky coconut cream, dressed with nahm pla prik and served in banana leaf; a royal beef salad of brisket simmered in coconut, shredded bamboo, lemongrass and roasted chilli sauce; grilled king prawns marinated in garlic-soy and spices, and served with tangy seafood nahm jim sauce; and grilled Barramundi marinated with “jungle curry” and wrapped in banana leaf.

Monsoon also features a great selection of curries and slow-braised dishes, including tender and fragrant Massaman beef curry with potatoes and shallots; creamy chicken green curry, which boasts the perfect balance of sweet and spicy flavours; and succulent Indonesian Wagyu beef rendang, slow-braised beef short ribs in coconut milk with traditional spices.

Noodle and soup lovers shouldn’t miss the comforting seafood Tom Yum soup with prawns, squid, galangal, shallots, chilli, coriander and tamarind; Indonesian “Soto Rawon”, a slow-cooked beef short ribs with soft egg, potato, tomato, Asian celery, green shallots and fresh lime; and chicken with crispy noodles “Kho Soi” served with pickled mustard greens and chilli relish.

Diners with a sweet tooth shouldn’t miss out on the decadent desserts, including Vietnamese creme caramel with coffee granita; “Kampung Snicker”, made with peanut butter parfait with butterscotch and chocolate-coated peanut; lemongrass panna cotta with cucumber lime jelly served with lemon and basil sorbet; and the classic black sticky rice with fresh mango, topped with coconut milk and mango ice cream.

Monsoon also offers an eclectic selection of tropical-inspired cocktails and mocktails. These include Monsoon, the perfect summer refresher, with vodka, fresh passion fruit juice, lemon, chilli, kaffir lime leaf, and topped with a fizzy cold beer; and Muse of Asia, with fresh lemon juice and blended Scotch whiskey.

Guests will love Monsoon’s range of vibrant and refreshing mocktails, include Lemon Berries Colada with grenadine, coconut milk, fresh lemonade and blueberries; and the earthy Orient Seas, with Indonesian apple infused black tea, fresh orange and apple juice.

The New Hospitality Norm

Embracing technology while also acknowledging the world situation, Chef Meyrick has set up Monsoon remotely, in what the chef predicts will become the new norm in hospitality. From his base in Perth, Meyrick has regularly liaised with the Monsoon culinary team, which is headed by his trusted head chef from Bali, Gede Budiana, via videoconferencing, and has created an archive of videos that detail the various preparations for each dish, to maintain quality and authenticity while ensuring Meyrick’s signature style is reflected in the new Hong Kong restaurant.

“This is going to be the new ‘normal’ for the restaurant business,” says Chef Meyrick. “We have to be willing to adopt new technology and be flexible when it’s just not practical to travel to Hong Kong to train the team in person. If anything, this is a return to the basics as we slow down the process, document all the recipes, and create an archive that the culinary team will always be able to refer to, to ensure consistency and authenticity.

The chefs’ new tech-driven approach will also benefit foodies around the world as Chef Meyrick prepares to launch Monsoon at Home, a series of insightful online cooking demonstrations that will be distributed via the restaurant’s social media channels, so that avid fans will be able to create their favourite Monsoon dishes at home.

Chef Gede Budiana has a rich career, much of it working at Chef Meyrick’s side. Budiana was part of the opening team at Sarong, which went on to be named in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. Born and raised in Bali, Chef Gede Budiana went to culinary school for job security at the age of 18 but quickly discovered his passion for cooking and hospitality. He met Will Meyrick while working at a beach resort in Bali and was inspired by the young Australian to be creative with Southeast Asia cuisine. When Chef Meyrick decided to open his first restaurant, Budiana quit his hotel chef role to help Meyrick establish his restaurant empire.

Monsoon is located at Shop 1045,1/F ELEMENTS, 1 Austin Road West, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. For reservation, please visit www.monsoonoriental.com.hk  or please call (852) 2511 0100.

YAKINIKUMAFIA Hong Kong

YAKINIKUMAFIA Hong Kong Launches Rare Cuts Omakase Experience
To celebrate the relaxing of social distancing measures, YAKINIKUMAFIA Hong Kong by global sensation WAGYUMAFIA is excited to add a brand new omakase experience to its menu, allowing guests to taste rare cuts of their famed wagyu that has been hand-selected by founder Hisato Hamada directly from the Ozaki farm before being sent to Hong Kong.
Although WAGYUMAFIA Japan exports their wagyu worldwide, Hong Kong is the only city outside of Tokyo to have access to these rare cuts of Ozaki beef as it is the only country Hamada imports the entire ‘head’ (whole cow) to be exclusively tasted at WAGYUMAFIA and YAKINIKUMAFIA Hong Kong.
While provenance, rearing and slaughtering of the cows are important factors affecting the texture and taste of the beef, the butchering of the meat is equally important which is why the butchers at YAKINIKUMAFIA Hong Kong take great pride in the “Migaki” (polishing) process every day when they receive the day’s allocation of meat.
“The Migaki process of each cow is almost ceremonial. When slicing into the different cuts, only the most experienced butchers will know the right way to remove the fat and the sinews while navigating around the different muscles to ensure you get the finest taste and texture out of that cut. The slightest change in the angle of the knife could affect the marbling, texture and flavour of the meat,” said Yohei Yamamoto, Chef de Cuisine of WAGYUMAFIA Hong Kong.
The omakase set (HK$980) features six rare cuts and is accompanied by YAKINIKUMAFIA Hong Kong’s signature Wagyu bone soup, cast-iron prepared Koshihikari rice, daikon with ponzu, pickled cucumbers, “big eye” BBQ dipping sauce and Hong Kong exclusive Wagyu Keema Curry, along with the Goma Salad and Soft Serve.
Guests ordering the omakase set will be able to try different rare cuts each time as the butchers will choose the cuts depending on what meat is available that day.
Some of the rare cuts include:
  • Senbon suji (rib cap), one of the top cuts of beef at the back of the ribs, between the chuck and sirloin cuts, with intensely sweet fat and rich umami taste
  • Zabuton (top blade), the meat located behind the shoulder blades, a rare cut as only two kg of this cut can be polished from each cow
  • Misuji (chuck flap), famous for having “the best marbling” among cuts of wagyu beef. This exceptionally tender cut is the central part of the chuck eye roll, each cow only has around three to four kg
  • Kata shin (chuck eye), the well-muscled and lean cut from the area between the shoulders and upper part of the foreleg with strong flavours
  • Kainomi (flap meat), the closest part to tenderloin with excellent flavour balance between lean and fat meat
  • Sankaku Bara (Chuck Short Rib), the perfect cut to taste in order to enjoy the sweetness of the fat and the umami of the lean meat in one bite
  • Rib geta (rib finger), the meat in between the ribeye and rib bones

One of the differentiating factors that keeps guests coming back to YAIKINIKUMAFIA time and again is the superior quality of Ozaki beef and now, even more chances to try a range of different cuts and textures, all of which are never pre-seasoned when served to allow its natural flavours to shine through.

Guests can also supplement additional cuts based on their preferences and order extra steaks that are cut to order, as well as YAKINIKUMAFIA Hong Kong’s signature “FML” cuts – fatty (otoro), medium fatty (chutoro) and lean (akami), and side dishes as desired.  
When booking, guests interested in learning about the Migaki process and the different cuts of beef should request the standing chef’s table where they can watch YAKINIKUMAFIA Hong Kong’s butchers “cut-to-order” and also learn the best ways to grill the different cuts of meat, whether at the restaurant or at home.
