No amount of words can express the gratitude of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s general manager Frank Reichenbach for having Lung Hin, the hotel’s signature Cantonese Restaurant, recognized as the most outstanding Chinese restaurant outside China. The China Hotel Industry Golden Horse Awards took place last March at Grand Hyatt Guangzhou, China. The award is commonly known as the “Oscar” in the hotel industry as it symbolizes the highest recognition in the industry. Hotel chains, tourism industry players, real estate and investment companies gather at the event annually to talk about the different trends and establish contacts for business opportunities for the hospitality business.
Lung Hin, located on the 44th floor of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, virtually brings the diners to Hong Kong through the fine art of Cantonese cuisine, thanks in large part to the well-trained Chinese chefs. Here, guests can sample combined tastes of both authentic and traditional flavors with a bit of modern spin while dining at a luxurious interior spot that offers a stunning view of the Ortigas skyline.
During a media event, Marco Polo Manila Ortigas introduced the newest executive chef of the Lung Hin Cantonese Restaurant, Leung Chi Kwan or simply known as Chef Ken. He presented a menu that comprises foods that are scrumptious yet all made up with different healthy ingredients.
Chef Ken’s special lunch preview showcased Deep Fried Tofu with Seaweed Salad, Deep Fried Beancurd Leek Rolls with XO Chili Sauce and Fried Spareribs with Black Vinegar Sauce. For the seafood lovers, the chef presented Stir-Fried Crystal Prawns and Poached Live Garoupa with Mushroom. Healthy light eats were also featured at the lunch preview, like the Ham and Vegetables in Superior Broth and Fookien Misua.
According to Reichenbach, the authenticity of the dishes they serve and the award for their Chinese cuisine proves that their guests appreciate what they have been doing.
