Being one of Asia’s most important financial hub, Hong Kong has always been known to be the most prominent business city in Asia. Characterized by the trade of business, lifestyle element and the high economic resilience in general, living standard in Hong Kong is growing rapidly in proportional to its economic growth- it is growing with a sundry of vibrant and unique lifestyle.
After a successful launch in Jakarta, Indonesia (2015) and Bangkok, Thailand (2016), the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) is hosting its third edition of In Style Hong Kong in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 7 th and 8th of November 2017. Over the next few months, we will see a series of sales promotion highlighting the Hong Kong lifestyle elements such as design-led products, trendy fashion and culinary experiences with special offers from selected restaurants.
And with focus on promoting Hong Kong cuisine, HKTDC has invited famous Hong Kong food personality, Luk Ho Ming to talk about the uniqueness canton cuisine has to offer. Partnering with the Canton-i, we are participating in a demonstration by Luk Ho Ming and Chef Yim Yu King from the outlet and the tasting menu is the Double boiled honey fig soup with sea whelk and pork lean meat, Slowed cooked dragon groupa fillet , and Double boiled coconut with natural peach resin soup and almond. These three dishes are available for 2 months starting October 1st, 2017.
Fig is already well known as a wonderful source of calcium and fibre, but this is my first time having them in soup. Together with sea whelk and the high protein pork lean meat, this one goes through the double-boiling process to release the taste of all ingredients and lock in the nutrients in the soup.
I might have taken slightly a longer time to photograph this but the silky smooth and soft texture of the dragon garoupa served steamed with bok choy is still lovely despite it being a little cold (we all know fish dishes normally gets a little fishy when it’s cold). Nonetheless, I acknowledge the benefit of this dish and I appreciate the beneficial ingredients that are also in the dish. Wolfberries are not only known to add and enhance the flavours of the dish, but are also rich in antioxidant and beta carotene to help fight aging and cancer.
Lastly, we had a dessert I would request for a second serving at anytime. Served inside a real coconut, this one with nourishing peach resin in it is supposedly rich in collagen that does not only resemble the bird’s nest when it comes to texture but is also containing almost the same content of the bird’s nest.
