Chef Leung preparing the signature Homemade Almond Cream with Egg White
Menu highlights include Crispy Rolls filled with PorkBrain, Liver and Fungus, a popular dish among the mass public during the 1950’s due to its affordability,served with the rare Caul Fat, athin and lacy membrane of pork fat created through an often-arduous process. Due to the complexity of the cooking process, only a handful of master chefs are still capable of crafting this dish and it isbarely served nowadays. The Double Sea Conch Soup with Tofu Chrysanthemum was a very luxurious delicacy during the 1960’s, with bean curd skillfully sliced into the shape of a blooming flower. The hearty soup is cooked for 5 hours and is finished withChinese ham, and a light shaving of black truffles from YunnanProvince. Steamed Spotted Garoupa with SaltedFish and Preserved Meat is anold-time dish that originates from Yang Jiang city in southwestern Guangdong, a dish that is no longer offered on menus in Hong Kong due to its long preparation time and craftsmanship required. The salted fish symbolizes the “dead”, while the garoupa symbolizes the “living” and it is this combination that gives the dish the perfect balance of flavor. The Simmered Chicken Fillets with Shrimp Paste is another one of Chef Leung’s take on a classic yet disappearing dish in Chinese cuisine, originating from Shunde, Guangdong Province. This is a dish that requires high technical skill through deboning a cooked chicken and stuffing with a mixture of prawns includingArgentinian Red Prawns that enhance the flavour. Steamed Rice with Minced Beef andDried Citrus Peel, topped Pork’s Fat,is a rustic Chinese style home cooking dish loved by all, featuring Australian minced wagyu, pork’s fat and 10-year dried Tangerine peel. The Deep-Fried Milk Rolls and Mandarin with Milk Tea Custard is a dessert that also originated from Shun De in China,very close to Chef Leung’s hometown, reinvented with the idea of milk tea custard. Finally, the menu ends with Homemade Almond Cream with Egg White, a delectable Cantonese classic created in Chef Leung’s rendition, with a modern twist.
