Mott 32 Hong Kong, the luxury Chinese restaurant, is ushering in the Autumn/Winter season with a new Seasonal Menu that plays homage to China’s Fukien province. The new menu celebrates the important role that Fukien cuisine has played in China’s culinary history, by presenting authentic dishes crafted using seasonal ingredients and traditional preparation techniques, with a particular focus on fresh, locally sourced seafood.
Chef Lee Man-Sing, Group Executive Chef at Mott 32 and Maximal Concepts shares, “Fukien cuisine, often known as ‘Min Cai, is entwined in China’s culinary heritage and is loved by people all over the world. During my recent travels, I connected with Chinese people in Canada and The Philippines and resonated with their deep yearning to be embraced by the comforting flavours of Fukien recipes. Through this seasonal menu, diners will be taken on a culinary journey through the coastal province, experiencing wholesome dishes that honour timeless traditions whilst being elevated for the modern guest”.
Fukien cuisine places great importance on preserving the natural flavour of ingredients. Characterised by subtle and delicate tastes, each bite strikes a balance between sweet, savoury, and umami notes, leaving diners craving more. Highlights of the Autumn/Winter Seasonal Menu include Drunken Mantis Shrimp, Glutinous Rice Wine. The dish allows guest to be immersed in a delightful culinary experience with succulent, fresh mantis shrimp infused with aromatic glutinous rice wine. A harmonious blend of garlic, cilantro, and a touch of fiery red chili creates the perfect balance of flavours.
