HEALTH CONSCIOUS ADVOCATE — CHINA TANG
Marinated Vegetable Seedling, Fried Dough Stick, Walut, Yuzu Vinegar
Their dishes are organic, pesticide-free and simply taste better, highlighting the original flavour of food itself.
The pursuit of health is not limited to size and weight, but also includes mindfulness. A healthy life is attained if you have a strong body and a balanced diet.
The current food trend is moving away from indulgence to a more health conscious space and sustainability of produce, especially among Hong Kong people. More restaurants are joining this trend now, advocating organic and vegetarian eating by launching a selection of tasty and nutritious dishes and set menus. One of them is the refined Chinese restaurant – China Tang located at Landmark Atrium.
Conceived and designed by Sir David Tang, China Tang Hong Kong opened its doors in 2013. The interior stands out in both elegance and character, fusing chinoiserie and refined British colonial touches, through hand-embroidered wallpaper, antiques and eclectic objects d’art.
Steamed Dumpling, Shrimp, Vegetable Seedling, Maitake Mushroom / Braised Chicken, Taro, Porcini Mushroom, Coconut Sauce
A selection of organic dishes are launched this time, all made by fresh and organic produce from local hydroponic farms. Hydroponics plants are mainly grown indoors without pesticides and pollution since they are not affected by the environment and climate. This is the reason why hydroponic plants can be consumed without rinsing. With good control of temperature, moisture, light and air purification, as well as a good growing environment, the produce are rich in vitamins and minerals. The dishes are organic, pesticide-free and simply taste better, highlighting the original flavor of food itself.
For appetizers, we recommend Marinated Vegetable Seedling, Fried Dough Stick, Walnut, Yuzu Vinegar. Featuring locally grown hydroponic seedlings, with rich flavor and tender taste, adding fried dough stick, caramelized walnut, sesame and yuzu vinegar, as a refreshing appetizer. Another cold dish is Marinated Peanut Sprouts, Garlic, Vinegar. Peanut sprouts, also known as “longevity fruit bud”, are rich in protein, can help to lower blood cholesterol, prevent cardiovascular disease and delay senility. The dish is served with soy sauce, vinegar and garlic sauce for rich and intense flavors.
For the main course, we recommend Braised Chicken, Taro, Porcini Mushroom and Coconut Sauce. This local chicken breed is famous for its thin skin and low fat with a strong fragrant taste. The chef first pan fries the chickens until golden brown, then adds organic taro which is rich in dietary fiber and boletus which is rich in protein and vitamins, stews with homemade fresh coconut milk and chicken stock, balancing and layering different flavors of the dish.
