THERE’S something special to look forward to at Lung Hin, the award-winning authentic Cantonese restaurant of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, this October. South African abalone is going to be the star of the show, promising to delight diners with the delicate flavors of the exquisite seafood.
Abalone, which is good for the liver, kidneys and entire immune system, is harvested from the sea via a very delicate process that requires carefully taking them off by hand. This is why it is considered as one of the most expensive ingredients in the Cantonese culinary scene and is believed to be served only to emperors during the ancient dynasties.
Lung Hin’s Executive Chinese Chef Ken Leung and his kitchen team highlights the versatility, texture and tenderness of the South African abalone in five specially crafted dishes—Braised South African Dried Abalone in Abalone Sauce, Braised South African Dried Abalone with Foie Gras, Braised South African Dried Abalone with Japanese Sea Cucumber, Double-boiled Mini Buddha Jump Over the Wall with South African Fresh Abalone for diners who love soup, and Braised Abalone Fried Rice with Wild Mushroom for diners who simply must have rice with every meal.
These exquisite dishes will be available from October 1 to 31, 2019, at Lung Hin, which is open daily from 12:00 nn to 2:30 p.m. for lunch and from 6:00 to 10:30 p.m. for dinner. For inquiries and reservations, call +632 720-7777.
