Enjoy a nine-course meal at Marco Polo Ortigas with 'Cantonese Anew' at Lung Hin

Lung Hin, one of Marco Polo Manila's well-renowned restaurants located in the heart of the Ortigas Business District, is currently offering its guests with a majestic and sumptuous feast that's fit for the upcoming Chinese New Year celebrations this week. 

The special 9-course menu is specially curated by their new Chinese executive Chef Lai Cheuk Kou, who has been working behind the kitchens for 36 years and counting, and it was an amazing experience to have tasted his culinary creations when I attended the preview a few weeks ago.

Treat your family at this impressive location wherein you can enjoy the highly coveted menu while you look over the skyline of Manila East.


Of course, what is a visit to Marco Polo Manila without a good drink? This Earl Grey Iced Tea remains their signature refreshment as we waited for the festivities to commence.

Marco Polo's Signature Earl Grey Iced Tea
The Prosperity Toss has long been a tradition for those celebrating in China, with different versions emerging over the last few decades in parts of Malaysia, Singapore and The Philippines. They say that the higher you toss, the more bountiful your year will be.

And all I can say was that the preview alone has made me and everyone else so bountiful indeed, especially our tummies! Think like having a lauriat with only in smaller, more defined portions.

Peking Duck with Osmanthus Jelly on Potato Chip
The flavors and textures of each course was amazing. The Peking Duck and the Abalone was simply exquisite.

Steamed Shrimp Dumplings with Gold Leaf
The Steamed Shrimp with Dumplings was made even more over-the-top with the addition of gold leaves, and we didn't get tired of it when the same meat was used as a focal point served with a thick and intense chicken stock. It was literally like liquid gold.

Both the Chicken and Fish Courses were utterly satisfying. The preparations and plating were non-traditional, but you can tell that the flavors and ingredients are really inspired by Cantonese cuisine.
